THE NT300

With the NT300. anglers can tap into freedom: freedom from the gas pump, the boat ramp, and the constant need for maintenance. From noise, leakage, and pollution. From highly trafficked waters. A quiet, emission-free alternative to traditional motors, the NT300 is light enough to slip in solo, and quiet enough to protect the peace—in all your favorite (maybe even secret) spots. With an enviable range, the motor's run time keeps anglers on the water longer, meaning the only thing left to worry about is the next catch.

Amazing Motor

This motor brings an extremely high level of owner satisfaction. The build quality is excellent. The power is unbelievable - it has got ALOT of torque. It runs clean and quiet, and the sound it makes is so cool! For the price, it can't be beat. Love that it is rated for both fresh and salt water! I can say nothing but good things about this amazing motor. Highly recommended.

More than expected

I bought the NT300 for our 12ft Sea Nymph aluminum boat. I bought a new 5hp Mercury 4 stroke but was disappointed in how loud it is and how much vibration it generated. I know it's a single cylinder motor but was hoping for more so I thought I will sacrifice speed and range for less noise. This is where I was pleasantly surprised. I paired the NT300 with three LifePO4 100ah 12v batteries and ran it like I would the gas motor to see how long we could run on a charge. Ran off and on fishing for about two and a half hours, most of the time at full throttle, and the batteries were showing 80% charge left. The most impressive things about the setup are how quiet it is and no more pull starting. Speed in fairly rough water with and about 10 to 15mph wind was a solid 5mph. This is with a fully loaded boat with 2 people, fishing gear, cooler etc. I would guess we were pushing 500 pounds with us, gear, motor and batteries. My only regret was not buying the NT300 before I bought the gas 5hp.

Newport NT300 Outboard Motor Review: Perfect Match for the Pelican Bass Raider 10e

We recently took our Pelican Bass Raider 10e on its maiden voyage, powered by the Newport NT300 outboard motor, and I couldn’t be more impressed. Despite not using the Newport battery due to budget constraints, the aftermarket 55Ah lithium iron phosphate battery performed admirably. The NT300 provided smooth, powerful propulsion, proving it’s a true outboard motor, not just a souped-up trolling motor. The range was fantastic, allowing us to cover over 6 miles with plenty of battery life remaining. For at least 4 miles of the journey we were at 100%. Check out the full adventure in our [YouTube video] https://youtu.be/K-DMk7VtI_I?si=voxT3tFQ3YgC6Gnl Pros: • True outboard motor performance • Great range and efficiency • Smooth and powerful operation Cons: • None so far! Overall, I highly recommend the Newport NT300 for anyone looking to power a plastic pontoon like the Pelican Bass Raider.

Old Town Flatback Discovery 15 Canoe - Read for motor length.

*NOTE* Order Standard for Flatback Canoe with ~ 18" transom. We ordered the longer NT300 for out Old Town Flatback Discovery 15 (18" transom to bottom of boat), based on guidelines posted on Newport. After receiving it was clear that the LONG was not going to work and was simply too long for wetland use with weeds like we use our canoe for. I got in contact and initiated a reorder of the STANDARD for our canoe witch looks like it's going to be a much better length. Newport is incredibly good on the customer service side. Overall very impressed by the build quality and relative value of the full package. Disconnectable battery also is a huge plus in my opinion.

Great Customer Service for warranty’s

I’ve really enjoyed my NT300. I use it to power my 22ft sailboat and it’s perfect. I had a warranty issue come up and it was dealt with accordingly and they replaced my motor quickly enough. Thanks for taking care of this customer!

NT300 3 HP electric motor

My experience has been great, I bought the NT300 3 HP electric motor and two 36 volt batteries, I'm a little leary of the battery dying while out fishing so I bought a back up, I don't think one battery will last a 10 or 12 hour fishing day. The motor is super quiet and moves my FastCat12 around pretty good on the water. Thanks Newport

Nice motor

Purchased this motor as an upgrade to my troll 55 thrust motor. Pleasing difference on a 14 ft. Jon boat with 2 to 3 people! I think anyone can critique anything to find something that could be different so I'll just say it does exactly what I want it to do and works great. Running it on 3 12v 100Ah lithium phosphate batteries and I can use it so several days especially with a troll motor on the front. Great buy so far and the customer communication has been plentiful.

So epic

I love this motor so much. I live on an "electric motor" only lake so I've had literally every Newport motor. Started with the traditional trolling motors and kept getting bigger and bigger ones then switched to this when it came out and I'll never look back. I actually have 3. Customer service is top notch and the motor is so good. Adding a backlight to the LED screen for night use would make perfect but I get along fine as is.

All Electric

The Newport NT300 passed the test, fought through the wind and waves. My 14 foot fishing boat cut through the water with ease. 20 miles on the lake and still had 75 percent of my battery power left. 36v 50 ah battery three 12v 50ah batteries.

Light and efficient

The motor is significantly lighter than gas motor and works perfect for an inflated raft where you don’t want a heavy gas motor and gas tank on the craft.

Well built, quiet engine

Had the engine about a month. Using it on a takacat 420LX inflatable with a 55ah LiPo4 battery. Used a trolling motor before, this is so much better built, faster and smoother. I think with a higher pitch prop it would probably get on the plane. Use my 9.9 Yamaha 4 stroke for the ocean still, but for lakes and anywhere I don't need more speed, this is so much lighter and easier!

NT300

Motor works extremely better than I had figured. Light, easy to carry and mount on. Never thought it would be a convenient as it is. Much faster than my normal trolling motor, which I was hoping for. Excellent purchase for me.

The conversion from loud to quiet is a relief and now my wife joins me

I needed to upgrade from a gas 15 hp and lund14 to the NEWPORT INFLATABLE BOAT 10ft Marine Wood Floor (which I bought Thanksgiving 2022) with all the accessories and now this Thanksgiving 2023 the NT300 and the NEWPORT 36V 40AH EXTENDED RANGE with Newport Connector in order to get my wife back on the water (Lake WA) with me and just cruise around again from our beachfront. I am 70 and she is 74. At this age, you need everything light and easy and safe and dependable. I am not sure why all your advertising is just for the gung ho fishers when the older set appreciates the product more (at least us).
