New MotorGuide is a quiet achiever
Manufacturers claim latest MotorGuide trolling motor is the quietest in class.
The latest trolling motor released by MotorGuide – the Xi3 – is billed as the quietest in its class with the manufacturers claiming it is up to 40% quieter than its nearest competitor.
The motor comes with a hand-held wireless remote control as standard, the SecureStep stow and deploy system, and the Pinpoint GPS module which includes Anchor, Jog, Heading Lock, and Route Record functions.
Available in 12- and 24-volt options with thrust ranging from 55 to 70 pounds, all Xi3 models can connect with Lowrance, Simrad and Mercury VesselView screens. There is the option of fresh water (black colour) or a saltwater (white colour) variants, along with the choice of 122-152cm (48”-60”) shaft lengths. A three-blade Machete propeller is included as standard while built-in sonar is optional for selected motors.
Alongside the Xi3, the MotorGuide Xi5 is now available in a 183cm (72”) shaft version suitable for offshore users. The Xi5 also includes Pinpoint GPS that now connects to selected Mercury VesselView and Simrad screens, in addition to the existing Lowrance compatibility.
