Product Description

The X Series 40lb Thrust Electric Trolling Motor by Newport Vessels is part of our newest line of electric transom-mount trolling motors. With the characteristic X Series 30 degree tilting head, this versatile multi-purpose trolling motor is a great motor for a variety of applications. Built with the latest in design, materials, and methods; this trolling motor is built to last. This transom mount motor is designed to be powered by a 12-volt Deep Cycle battery or Marine battery (not included). The control box and telescoping 6-inch handle have a tilt adjustment so that the operator can adjust the handle to level that makes steering more comfortable. With an adjustable 36-inch shaft length, the Newport Vessels trolling motor is built to fit all Newport Vessels inflatable boats as well as all other inflatable boats, kayaks, dinghies, tenders, fishing boats, aluminum fishing boats, and inflatables with a transom. The 8 speed control system (5 forward speeds and 3 reverse speeds) makes for a smooth and easily controlled ride. The 40lb thrust X Series trolling motor comes with a 3 blade propeller for optimal performance.

X Series 40lb Thrust Electric Trolling Motor Comes With:

  • 40lb Thrust Trolling Motor
  • 3-Blade Propeller Kit

Other Accessories Needed for Operation:

  • 12V Deep Cycle or Marine Battery and Charger with at least 50 Amp Hour Rating on the battery. Amp Hours determines battery runtime.
  • 40 Amp Manual Reset Circuit Breaker (Available for purchase from Newport Vessels HERE)

    Newport Vessels highly recommends a 40 amp manual reset circuit breaker in the outboard motor leads within 1.8m (72 inches) of the battery for this motor, on the positive line. This product can be found for purchase HERE. During the usage of the electric outboard motor, when the propeller is stuck by the weeds, small stones, fishing lines or so forth, the circuit breaker will cut off the power automatically to prevent the damage of any electrical parts.

Newport Vessels X Series 40lb 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. A huge difference in the 40lb thrust motor is the ability to tilt the control box and handle up or down. This allows the person steering to adjust to a level that is comfortable for them. Also, it makse the storage of the motor more compact. One of the main reasons the Newport Vessels 40lb 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 10-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 36-inch fiberglass composite shaft on Newport Vessels 40lb thrust electric motor is very strong and the perfect height for many of the boats, kayaks, or other vessels needed for a 40lb thrust motor. Newport Vessels X Series 40lb thrust electric trolling motor offers all of these key components at the lowest price of $169, the lowest of any competitor's motor.

  1. Looks Great So Far 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jul 2015

    This little motor looks great so far. I just pulled this out of the box and it looks very solid. There is a lot of plastic, but it's thick and sturdy, and appears to be well a well made trolling motor. I'm replacing an old Minn Kota which was good, but I got this motor because of the saltwater rating and the adjustable handle angle. I'll use this a couple times and then update my review.
