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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Lots of power! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2015

    First time out we didn't use a deep cycle because the AGM we wanted had to be ordered. Anytime we buy a battery, we always check the manufacture date to make sure we get the freshest one. The one on the shelf was dated January. Anyway we took it to the L. B. harbor and a guy at the dock was having trouble with his fuel tank and offered to help us launch our 10 foot inflatable if we would take him to his dock which was about a mile away. We attached the 55lb thrust motor & launched the
    boat. He jumped in his inflatable which was a Chibe or something like that and handed us a tow line. I had no idea if this motor or booster battery set up was even going to work. My wife jumped in and I twisted the throttle and much to my surprise away we went towing our new found friend! We rounded the bend and proceeded up towards a row of boats to his slip. He thanked us and said that he would be coming back this direction shortly and check to make sure we had enough battery power to get back. Well that was a good thing because about half way back the battery pack went South and we found ourselves enjoying a leisurely tow back to the dock where we started. I guess the moral to the story is use a deep cycle battery instead of a jump starter; but all in all that little motor has a lot of poop power and I'm sure it will do a super job of moving our inflatable around, especially if we're not having to tow another boat. This is a strong little motor and I'm sure we are going to have a lot of fun with our inflatable at Lake Powell.

  4. Trolling Troubador( I love it) 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jul 2015

    This motor moves my 50 year old High liner aluminum pleasure boat in a most lively and romantic way. Harmonious machine and aquatic action of the boat results in making a most memorable fishing experience(even if the fish are not biting)!

  5. Great trolling motor 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2015

    I just ordered the NV 55 lb motor a few weeks ago. It arrived 7 days later - in NY. Yesterday was our first use of it. It powered our 17 ft Old Towne Canoe (w/square transom) without effort through some some pretty stiff breezes. Fairly large lake in Hudson Valley area of NY. Boat weighs 115 lbs. Myself, girlfriend and her 15 year old son on board along with some light fishing gear. My only complaint is I wish they used alligator clips on the battery cables. keeping a box wrench on board for (dis)connecting cables from battery is a bit inconvenient along with worring about losing your 1/4 inch nuts while doing so.
