There's no trolling motor on the planet more prepared for the extreme test of saltwater than the MotorGuide Great White. Heat. Corrosion. Big-water pounding. All in a day's work for these predators. Our Great White is the choice of guides, competitive anglers and die-hards around the world. From the specially formulated coating to the epoxy-sealed lower unit and the industry's only stainless steel shaft - the durability starts on the outside and goes all the way to the core. You Never Stop, and there's only one motor ready to go the distance with you in one of the most caustic environments on earth.
Digital Guardian monitors your motor's amp draw, heat dissipation, output and other vital parameters. The result is a motor that self-regulates - a cooler, more durable running motor with an extended service life. It is a self-contained, sealed module in the lower unit that brings all vital motor components together in one protected location, eliminating outdated analog circuit boards and related componentry.
