The Minn Kota Ultrex QUEST is Now Shipping

After being released in the summer of 2023, the Minn Kota Ultrex QUEST has stood out as one of the most powerful and efficient trolling motors ever created – featuring a more robust and powerful brushless motor built for the harshest conditions.

Redesigned from the ground up, the Minn Kota® Ultrex QUEST™ is packed with many key new features revolutionizing the world of bow mount trolling motors. The customizable preset One-Boat Network™ Button on the Ultrex foot pedal gives anglers quick access to their most important functions such as Mark A Waypoint, Auto Pilot, and the capability to stow and deploy Minn Kota Raptor or Talon shallow water anchors.

After using the new Ultrex QUEST for the latter half of the 2023 season, Humminbird and Minn Kota Pro Chad Pipkens stated, “The One-Boat Network Button is absolutely the feature that stands out most to me on the new Ultrex QUEST. Being able to deploy my raptors from my foot pedal saves me time and helps me land fish more efficiently.”

The revolutionary Ultrex QUEST is loaded with upgrades that will help keep anglers on the water who demand the best from their equipment. Along with a programmable One-Boat Network button, the Ultrex QUEST has a redesigned and upgraded mount, a carbon fiber infused shaft, and updated propellers to maximize strength and speed without compromising flexibility. 

“The Ultrex QUEST is so durable you can feel the difference as soon as you deploy the motor. The simple things like the auto straight ahead and the smoothness impressed me right away. Along with the durability, the new lift-assist assembly makes stowing and deploying the motor effortless.” added Pipkens.

2023 Bassmaster Classic champion and Humminbird and Minn Kota pro Jeff Gustafson, used his new Ultrex QUEST during the final stretch of the 2023 Bassmaster Elite Series season on Lake Champlain and the St. Lawrence River. During competition, anglers were faced with high winds and large waves, creating conditions that demand the best from their equipment and the Ultrex QUEST conquered it all.

“Throughout the Northern swing of the Bassmaster Elite Series we got hit with as tough of conditions for a trolling motor as you can, big water on Lake Champlain, along with the biggest waves I was in all year on Lake Ontario. I was able to use the Ultrex QUEST under these stressful conditions and it performed flawlessly.” said Gustafson.

The fully redesigned Ultrex QUEST and the entire line-up of QUEST trolling motors from Minn Kota will offer new and upgraded features for anglers of all skill levels. All new Ultrex and Terrova motors are available now, while Ulterra and Instinct motors will begin shipping in November. The Ultrex QUEST is built to withstand the harshest environments with an astonishing 30% longer runtime on a given charge and up to 50% more torque*. With precise boat control and industry-leading power, the Ultrex QUEST provides anglers with the confidence to navigate any fishing scenario effortlessly.

*When run on 24 volts compared to a 24-volt brushed motor at maximum speed setting.
