Product Description
Get what you want, when you want it. With Vantage, we've made it easier than ever to take control of stow and deploy, steering, and backtrolling. And with a convenient Tilt/Extend Tiller that extends to a full 31-Inch, Effortless command is in your grasp. When the fishing calls for backtrolling, Vantage responds. Simply lift the directional indicator, rotate it 180 degrees and set it back in place. It's that fast and easy to change direction. With 4:1 articulated steering, rotating the lower unit 180 degrees is as easy as moving the Tilt/Extend Tiller just 45 degrees. Besides delivering maximum results with minimum effort, it stays out of the way of your outboard or kicker motor. When depth and fishing conditions change, all you have to do is push a button to raise and lower the motor. It also automatically stows the motor at the end of the day or when you're on the move. Unlike conventional transom mounts the Vantage mounting system breaks away on impact. It's easy to reset and protects your motor from unsean hazards. Digital Maximizer provides up to five times longer run time on a single charge. By controlling the draw of power at variable speeds, it eliminates wasted energy, extends batter life and gives you more time on the water.

The Vantage Transom Mount Trolling Motor makes it easier than ever to take control of stow and deploy, steering, and backtrolling. Equipped with a convenient Tilt/Extend Tiller that extends to a full 31-inches, effortless command is in your hands. When backtrolling is called for, simply lift the directional indicator, rotate it 180 degrees, and set it back in place. 4:1 articulated steering allows you to rotate the lower unit 180 degrees with minimum effort, and the tiller stays out of the way of your outboard or kicker motor. Stow and deploy with ease--the Vantage's Power Trim/Stow and Deploy button allows you to raise and lower the motor with a push of the button when depth and fishing conditions change. The Power Trim/Stow and Deploy also automatically stows the motor at the end of the day or when you're on the move.

Ample strength for any situation is delivered with the Weedless Wedge 2 Prop that takes on thick weeds without draining the battery. With 36 volts and maximum thrust of 101, the motor has the muscle you need to go the distance. But beyond sheer strength, the Vantage offers the intelligence you need to optimize conditions on the water. The motor's Digital Maximizer provides the precise amount of power needed at any speed--along with variable speed control, so that you can stay on the water up to five times longer on a single charge and increase speed incrementally for optimum trolling presentation.

Unlike conventional transom mounts the Vantage mounting system breaks away on impact making it easy to reset and providing protection for your motor from unseen hazards. And, finally, thanks to extra large windings and commutators to dissipate heat, and Minn Kota's unique bearing system that reduces friction, the motor runs cooler and quieter for increased battery and overall motor life--and so the fish will never hear you coming. Backed by a 2-year warranty, the Vantage Motor is built to go the distance.

Digital Maximizer:

    The Digital Maximizer optimizes draw to extend battery life and reduce damaging heat--helping you stay on the water up to five time longer on a single charge. By regulating power, the Digital Maximizer delivers the precise amount of power needed at any speed with rapid on/off switching from the battery connection to control speed more efficiently than speed coils can. If 'on' time is longer compared to 'off,' the motor receives more power. If 'off' time is longer, the motor gets less power. Since there is minimal power lost to accomplish this, the overall motor is very efficient.

With variable speed control, the Digital Maximizer allows for proper speeds to be set and maintained while trolling lures for proper presentation. Fine-tuned speed adjustments and virtual speed adjustments allow the user to control boat speed more effectively in changing environments.

4:1 Articulated Steering:

    With 4:1 articulated steering, you get more response with less effort. Rotating the lower unit 180 degrees is as easy as moving the Tilt/Extend Tiller just 45 degrees. Besides delivering maximum results with minimum effort, it stays out of the way of your outboard or kicker motor.

Vantage Breakaway Mount:

    Unlike conventional transom mounts, the Vantage mounting system breaks away on impact. It's easy to reset and protects your motor from unseen hazards.

    Power Trim/Stow and Deploy:

      When depth and fishing conditions change, all you have to do is push a button to raise or lower your motor. You can also automatically stow the motor at the end of the day or when you're on the move.

    Vantage Back Trolling:

      When the fishing calls for backtrolling, Vantage responds. Simply lift the directional indicator, rotate it 180 degrees and set it back in place. It's that fast and easy to instantly change direction with the power of Vantage.

    Weedless Wedge 2 Prop:

      Only Minn Kota's Weedless Wedge 2 can push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. Minn Kota has improved on the legendary Roland Martin design with swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.

    Cool, Quiet Power:

      No motor runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota does. The Minn Kota is constructed with extra large windings and commutators to dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. Minn Kota's unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise--making the motor so quiet, they'll never hear you coming.

    About Minn Kota:

      With over 75 years of innovation and power on the water, Minn Kota Motors has been delivering some of the best-built trolling motors in the world for three quarters of a century. Beginning in 1934 in Fargo, North Dakota, Minn Kota began with Mr. O. G. Schmidt's invention of the trolling motor. Because of its proximity to the MINNesota--North DaKOTA border, The Minn Kota Manufacturing Company name was born. Since its founding, Minn Kota has led the way in product innovation and cutting-edge technology with a long list of 'firsts' that include: first electric gear-driven motor (1934); first electric motor with reverse switch (1965); first built-in electronic/variable speed control (1986); first computer-controlled motor, first self-steering unit (AutoPilot) (1991); first fully automatic trolling motor (Genesis) (1999); and first DualBeam integrated transducer - 83kHz/200kHz with temperature sensing (Universal Sonar 2) (2007) among numerous other innovations in its 75 years of business.
