KAYAK SERIES

Designed with kayak anglers in mind, the Newport Kayak Series trolling motors build on the tried and true design of the NV Series trolling motors, featuring a height adjustable 24-inch shaft for correct depth placement. Extended cabling provides for flexible battery placement, ensuring compatibility with all transom mount kayaks, canoes and paddle boats. Five forward speeds and three reverse speeds allow for a smooth and efficient ride.

THE SHALLOW WATER SNIPER

Fishing from a kayak allows you to get in close to the action without scaring away bass and other shallow water fish. But fighting water currents on your own can be exhausting and time consuming. Utilizing a trolling motor allows kayakers to quickly access their favorite fishing spot, so they can spend the day fishing and not paddling. The ultra-quiet operation of our Kayak Series electric trolling motor ensures a stealthy approach, placing you right on top of fish bigger boats can only dream of finding.

Good motors but do not use lithium batteries

From what I have learned running mine is they will run fine on lithium batteries but being they are not brushless motors and they will not take advantage of the longer life of a lithium battery and is probably why they do not recommend using lithium. Just wanted to share this in case someone was planning to use a lithium battery and let them know these motors will work with them but it is definitely not worth the added expense of buying a lithium battery.
