MotorGuide’s new VariMAX Digital Kayak trolling motors offer the finest in electric trolling motor performance in salt and fresh water, giving all small boat anglers better control and longer run times than have previously been available.

This special model V45 is a 12-volt, 45-pound thrust motor. Its VariMAX technology allows precise digital variable speed control with 3.5X more run time from a single battery charge than the common 5-speed transom-mounted trolling motors. A built-in BluVis multi-functional gauge indicates the speed level setting and the battery’s charge status at a glance for quick reference throughout a day on the water.

VariMAX Kayak features a 20-inch stainless steel shaft for the perfect amount of trolling motor bite and clearance, making it ideal for mounting on the bow or transom of any small boat. For bow operation, the motor’s head can be easily reversed to pull the boat for the ultimate in front-of-the-boat control.

What really sets VariMAX apart from other small craft trolling motors is its variable speed versatility. Variable speed means there is a full range of infinite settings from low to high so the angler has total control in finding the perfect speed setting for the conditions at hand. Speed adjustments are made by simply twisting the motor’s handle right to increase and left to decrease. The direction of thrust is just as intuitive in operation, pushing the handle forward to go forward, and pulling it back for reverse.

The trolling motor’s construction is durable, stylish and functional. The VariMAX Kayak model is built on MotorGuide’s proven 3.5-inch lower unit and features the brand’s legendary Great White corrosion protection for saltwater use, meaning this motor can also endure any freshwater fishing application.

The VariMAX Kayak model retails for under $300, and is available through traditional sporting goods stores and marine dealers. For more information, visit MotorGuide.com
