Product Description

The NV Series 55lb thrust electric trolling motor by Newport Vessels is a versatile and multi-purpose trolling motor that is made with the highest quality materials and the latest design concepts. This trolling motor is built to last with future-proofing in mind.  With an adjustable 30-inch fiberglass composite shaft, 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 highly adjustable ride. The 55lb thrust trolling motor comes with a 3 blade propeller (10 inch diameter) for optimal performance.This transom mount motor is built to be powered by a 12-volt Deep Cycle battery or Marine battery (not included).   

NV Series 55lb Thrust Electric Trolling Motor Comes With:
  • 55lb 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.
  • 50 Amp Manual Reset Circuit Breaker (Available for purchase from Newport Vessels HERE)

    Newport Vessels highly recommends a 50 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 NV Series 55lb 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 55lb 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 55lb thrust electric motor is very strong and the perfect height for many of the boats, kayaks, or other vessels needed for a 55lb thrust motor. Newport Vessels 55lb thrust electric trolling motor offers all of these key components at the lowest price of $199, the lowest of any competitor's motor.

  1. so far, so grat! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Sep 2017

    Just tried the motor for the first time today -- a very brief test run. Seems able to move my 20 trimaran sailboat (1600-1800 lbs.) reasonably well. Using two small 10 Ah compact batteries, the whole setup is lightweight and cost about 15% of the Torqeedo we were considering (but rejected because of an annoying high-pitched whine!). We used only a fraction of the one battery on our brief maiden voyage, but were delighted with how quiet the motor is. Later, we'll motor around our lake (when no wind for sailing) and be just like the pontoon boats that circle in the evening!

  2. So far so good if not great! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jun 2017

    The order to delivery process was simple and provided me with a pleasurable experience especially given the price and free shipping. I called their office to see if this 55# thrust motor would be sufficient for my Old Town Saranac 146 canoe and was pleased to hear that it would be a good match and that all of Newport Vessels electric motors are saltwater approved. So now I have the canoe, motor mount and the motor; I just need to get them into the waters of Aurora Reservoir before giving this product the 5 stars it probably deserves.

    BTW, there were some reviews regarding the click or lack of click when changing speeds/direction. The motor I received has a definite click between speeds which can be heard as well as felt. I haven't been able to see the power LEDs in action yet yet but think this can be mitigated by simply cupping one's hand over the display...time will tell I guess.

  3. Outstanding value. Can't beat it. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th May 2017

    Try it and you will own it.

  4. Great Trolling Motor 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Dec 2016

    This little trolling motor is great. Easy to use right out of the box and it's much more substantial than I expected it to be. The bracket appears to be plastic, not aluminum but that's no surprise since it's $200. The plastic bracket is really solid and trolling motor has tons of power. The battery meter is good to have, and the lights are bit bright at night, but I guess that's better than being too dim. I've used it about 4 times so far, so I'll report back how it performs after more use.

  5. A Simple 5 Star Trolling Motor 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th May 2016

    This motor isn't anything special, it's exactly what I needed and pretty simple. It runs good, has good power, and is reliable. For the cost I don't think you can get any better, and if you spend more (get another brand) I don't think you get anything extra. It's a 5 star trolling motor but it's a simple trolling motor which I like.
