How does Newport Vessels electric trolling motors stack up against the competition? 



Newport Vessels NV Series 46lb thrust electric trolling motor differs in many ways from our main competitors comparable model motors such as Minn Kota and Motorguide. Both brands make comparable motors as far as thrust power goes, but Newport Vessels offers more great features at a lower cost. One of the main reasons the Newport Vessels 46lb thrust trolling motor stands out against the rest is that it is saltwater resistant; Minn Kota's Endura C2 and Endura MAX models and Motorguide's R3 model can not say the same. None of them can be used in saltwater. Our motor is constructed with Zinc, aluminum, and stainless steel components allowing for dependable performance in saltwater. Another key component in our motor is the 5-point LED meter built directly into the motor head that gives precise battery life measurements. The Minn Kota Endura C2 and Motorguide R3 do not have a battery meter and the Endura C2 only has a push to test battery life button. The 30-inch fiberglass composite shaft on Newport Vessels 46lb thrust electric motor is very strong and the perfect height for many of the boats, kayaks, or other vessels needed for a 46lb thrust motor. Newport Vessels NV Series 46lb thrust electric trolling motor offers all of these key components at the lowest price of $159, the lowest of any competitor's motor.
