No. There are two places that make a holder but the motor on the Ulterra is not that strong and any with the 360 on it can get thrown out of whack fairly easily and then needs to be taken to the repair facility to be retimed. I have tried both of them. IMO the best way is to buy a different deployment method and deploy it separate from the trolling motor.

This one is the most professionally made but is heavy and they don't advertise it for the ulterra any more.

Cumberland is the other. It is lighter, and not quite as professionally made but it comes loose and can bind which causes the issue.

This is one of the alternatives

but there are a few others out there that might work better. I think Shut up and Fish has one that deploys a little better mounted on a ram mount that basically just swings into the water when needed.

My experience is with the old 360. I don't know if the mega is heavier or not.

The MEGA 360 is 1/2 # heavier.
