LOWELL, Michigan – MotorGuide, a trusted fishing brand with more than 50 years in engineering trolling motors and accessories, introduces Xi3 – the quietest and easiest to use motor in its class, with out-of-the box wireless control standard.
"The Xi3 is a no-nonsense motor that gives everyday anglers the freedom to fish from anywhere in their boat using a handheld remote control," said Kevin Read, category manager for MotorGuide. "The Xi3 is also easy to stow and deploy, and its quiet operation won't spook fish."
Xi3's SecureStep makes it easy and safe for anglers to deploy without having to reach over the motor, or position themselves on the bow to operate a release. It also provides clear visual and audible cues to confirm when it's stowed. Rigorous sound testing proves that Xi3 is the quietest running trolling motor in its class. The Xi3 provides wireless control at an affordable price and is ideal for boats up to 18 feet.
The Xi3 can be purchased with the industry's most accurate Pinpoint® GPS, or added later as an accessory, it is also Lowrance connectivity capable.
Anglers will be able to purchase Xi3 in 2018 from leading retailers and can select from four thrust levels, two volt options, and three shaft lengths. Built in sonar transducer is also available.
