MotorGuide releases new Xi3 – and 72” Xi5


ACCORDING to the manufacturers, MotorGuide’s newest release – the Xi3 – is the quietest and easiest to use motor in its class.

Rigorous testing, they say, has proven it to be up to 40% quieter than its nearest competitor. But there’s a lot more to it than that.

MotorGuide’s latest offering has wireless control straight out of the box, with a hand-held remote standard on all models. Right from the start, anglers will be able fish from anywhere on the boat.

The motor’s SecureStep system ensures stowing and deploying the Xi3 is safe and easy. SecureStep lets users release the motor from its locked position without having to reach over it, while providing a clear visual and audible signal to confirm the motor is stowed and locked correctly.

The Xi3 also boasts Pinpoint GPS module, which allows anglers to focus on the fishing while taking advantage of amazing GPS functions like Anchor, Jog, Heading Lock, Route Record and more.

Available in 12- and 24-volt options with thrust ranging from 55 to 70 pounds, all Xi3 models are Lowrance, Simrad and Mercury VesselView connectivity compatible.

Anglers also have the option of fresh water (black) or a saltwater (white) variants, along with the choice of 48” – 60” (122-152cm) shaft lengths. A three-blade Machete propeller is included as standard with all Xi3 models. Built-in sonar is optional for selected motors.
