Over the next couple of weeks, I will be adding more content and videos to this review of the Intex Excursion 5 inflatable boat with the Intex 68631 420W trolling motor.
The first part of the review will be a speed test. Many people are asking „How fast can I go with the Excursion 5 an the trolling motor?“.
In the following section, you will get the answer.
Intex Excursion 5 with trolling motor – speed test
In this section, I test the Excursion 5 with the Intex 68631 Trolling Motor with 420W.
The Intex Trolling Motor has got 3 reverse and 5 forward gears, which are really great for handling the boat under any circumastance.
In the video above, you can see the 9 years old skipper reverse the boat from „the dock“ and then hit it into fifth gear to head out „to sea“.
The motor allows for the boat to be handled even by a child – it“s very easy to steer it and to switch gear.
Intex Excursion 5 with Intex Trolling Motor – maximum speed.
The maximum speed we got on a calm day with no wind and calm waters was 5 to 6 km/h – which is about 3.5 mph.
