The new MotorGuide Xi3 is up to 40% quieter than its nearest competitor, and a hand-held remote is included as standard. Its SecureStep system 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 that it’s stowed and locked correctly. The Xi3 also boasts the Pinpoint GPS module, which lets you focus on fishing while taking advantage of GPS functions like Anchor, Jog, Heading Lock, Route Record and more. Available in 12V and 24V options, with thrust ranging from 55-70lb, all Xi3 models are Lowrance, Simrad and Mercury VesselView connectivity compatible. Anglers also have the option of freshwater or saltwater variants, along with the choice of 48-60” (122-152cm) shafts. A three-blade Machete propeller is included as standard with all Xi3 models, and built-in sonar is optional for selected motors. In addition to this, the MotorGuide Xi5 just got even better with the release of a 72” (183cm) shaft version.
