New for 2024! Minn Kota Riptide Instinct Quest Salt Water Trolling Motor in Black - featuring Auto Deploy.

Big water, bigger boats – that’s where Instinct comes in. A motor designed not just to handle the elements but to thrive in them. With available shaft lengths up to 100” and the most  dependable automatic stow and deploy ever built,

Instinct comes ready to go where other trolling motors won't. The new QUEST series of dual 24/36 volt brushless trolling motors was designed for anglers who demand the best from their equipment – even in the harshest environments. With a reinforced motor and mount, more advanced GPS functionality than ever and even an eco mode to extend battery life, Instinct is ready to tackle the elements where the waves are high – and so are the stakes.

The Quest 24/36V dual-voltage brushless motors have been completely re-imagined from the ground up with updates to mounts, propellers, lift assist systems, drive motors and software – taking the world’s greatest trolling motors and redesigning them to outperform everything else on the water for years to come.

With a compatible Humminbird fish finder you can create a One-Boat Network.  Then use the new One-Boat Network App to control your speed, steering and enhanced GPS navigation modes like Spot-Lock®, Advanced AutoPilot® and the all-new Drift Mode. If your motor features Auto Stow/Deploy, it can be activated right from the app.devices.


  • 3 Year Warranty
  • Brushless Motor Technology - The brushless design of QUEST means ultra-silent operation and a longer lifespan thanks to fewer moving parts. QUEST slices through weeds and waves with 50% more torque, added thrust and a new prop designed specifically to maximise power output.
  • Auto Stow & Deploy - Stow or deploy Instinct just by pushing a button on your wireless remote, foot pedal, the One-Boat Network App or Humminbird fish finder.
  • Power Trim - Trim Instinct up or down at the push of a button on either the foot pedal, the wireless remote, the One-Boat Network App or a Humminbird fish finder. Adjust to changing fishing conditions without reaching down to your trolling motor.
  • Advanced GPS Trolling System - Bluetooth communication allows new i-Pilot to pair with your smartphone, allowing for easy software updates and quick command of speed, steering, Spot-Lock, high speed bypass, and Advanced AutoPilot.
  • Spot-Lock with Jog - Spot-Lock will hold you in place with unparalleled GPS accuracy. Spot-Lock gives you the power to stay right on top of any productive fishing spot, without touching your trolling motor. With the built-in heading sensor, you can use Jog to move your Spot-Lock location five feet in any direction.
  • Drift Mode - Gives you point and shoot navigation for superior boat control in any direction, at any speed without the need of drift socks, kicker motors, or manual operation
    - even in the heaviest wind and current.
  • Real-time Battery Monitoring - Check battery power levels while the motor is in use, real-time “time until empty” display monitor, with a notification when battery power is
    reduced to 20% to prompt users to enter “Eco-mode” which can reduce current draw to extend battery life.
  • Digital Maximizer™ - Provides up to 5 times longer run time on a single battery charge. These variable speed trolling motors let you dial in your exact speed, and
    they deliver only as much power as you need, helping to conserve your battery for a full day of fishing.
  • Indestructible Composite Shaft - At the core of your Minn Kota trolling motor is an indestructible composite shaft. It's a Minn Kota exclusive, and
    we guarantee it for life.
  • Mobile App Compatibility - Control your motor directly from your Apple® or Android™ device with the One-Boat Network app. You get quick command of speed, steering,
    Spot-Lock and AutoPilot - plus the ability to update software.
  • Part of the One Boat Network - Out of the box, Minn Kota motors come standard with everything you need to connect to select Humminbird fish finders, unlocking more advanced navigation features without needing to remember additional adapters or complicated set-up procedures. Note that a compatible Huminbird device is required.

Choosing the Correct Trolling Motor Shaft Length

Choosing the correct shaft length is important. If it's too short the prop won't be sufficiently submerged. We recommend submerging the centre of the motor section as least 30cm and at least 45cm if fishing in rough water. Also it is recommended that the propeller is submerged at least 30cm below the water line to avoid churning or agitation of the water surface.

The optimal operating mode is with the motor trimmed all the way down.
