Fish all day and enjoy stellar control of your boat, day in and day out, with the MotorGuide 55HT VariMAX freshwater hand-control transom mount trolling motor. Rugged and functional style is highlighted by an intuitive push/pull, forward/reverse speed adjustment system, and the motor features 55 pounds of peak thrust, 12 volts of power, and a 50-inch aluminum shaft. The built-in BluVis function display shows direction, precise speed settings, and 10 levels of battery voltage when the unit is turned off. VariMAX motors are designed to have best-in-class run time and the advantage of precise variable speed adjustment, enabling anglers to fish longer, at the exact desired speed, and as quietly as possible. Perfect for all-day fishing expeditions, VariMAX delivers more than three times the battery life of traditional five-speed motors.
MotorGuide's VariMAX motors include the Digital Advantage feature for quiet, smooth operation that allows anglers to hit the water with confidence and get closer to the fish. Protected from heat, moisture, corrosion, and shock, the digital module is completely sealed in a compact, lightweight lower unit. Building off of an award-winning technology, MotorGuide has also introduced a new benchmark with Digital Variable Speed, which allows for up to 3.5-times longer operation on a single charge than traditional five-speed motors. The control module allows anglers to find the precise desired speed setting while slowly and quietly ramping to speed, which increases boat control and mount longevity. So whether sight-fishing, throwing a jig into a submerged brush pile, or simply enjoying a peaceful morning on the water, VariMAX offers a stealthy propulsion solution.
The motor's BluVis display readout keeps you constantly updated on battery charge and speed.
Many anglers know the unpleasant feeling of traveling up an inlet and worrying about having enough power charge to make it back home. With VariMAX, that concern is a distant memory. The BluVis speed and battery indicators provide a constant reminder of how much life is left in the battery. And with Intuitive Direction Control, you'll no longer wonder which direction to turn the handle to reach your target. Simply push or pull the handle in the desired direction.
