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

    Posted by on 8th May 2017

    Try it and you will own it.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Strong Motor 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Feb 2016

    I have been using this motor for 8 months now and it's got allot of power for its size. I set up my 11 foot fishing kayak that holds 500 lbs of gear including myself. Use a 195Amp hour west marine battery , I can stay out all day (9 hours and travel 9 to 14. Miles) if using the motor in the 1-4 speeds, Using speed 5 moves the boat quite well but Will use the batery very quickly. Speed 5 is to fast for trolling, The only problem I have is the motor housing paint is corroding off but I have sanded and repainted, overall great motor for the price. Very well built.

  5. Great So Far 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2015

    I've only had the motor for a week but so far it's great. It was delivered quickly and arrived in great shape. This is my first newport trolling motor but it looks pretty solid. I'd never heard of newport prior to ordering, so I wasn't sure of what to expect, but i'm pleasantly surprised. I'll try to give more info in a couple months after I use it for a while. Great trolling motor so far though.
