Product Description

The X Series 55lb 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 55lb thrust X Series trolling motor comes with a 3 blade propeller for optimal performance.

X 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, either on the positive or negative line. This 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 the electrical parts.

Newport Vessels X 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 10-point LED meter built directly into the motor head that gives precise battery life measurements. Also, the control box and handle has is adjustable, it can be tilted 30 degrees up or down leaving the person steering in a position that is comfortable for themselves. 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 $2299, the lowest of any competitor's motor.

  1. Great electric motor 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Nov 2017

    Terrific motor that meets my expectation and moves both of my boats, one at a time of course, with ease in canals and on river. I rated as four stars only because 2 weeks following purchasing motor and battery box and being assured the products never go on sale I started receiving 20% off emails from Newport. I did not investigate if these applied to what I purchased.

  2. Second one 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th May 2017

    Had first one for ten
    Months before it broke. Had trouble finding neutral from beginning. Very good warranty policy, had new one with in a week. Have not used it yet.

  3. Strong, Silent Type. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Sep 2015

    Mine's attached to my 16-foot sailboat. What a joy, the first time out of the marina! Silent. Powerful. And she sips power - I fought a huge wind coming back in; but after much motoring, I was still on 8 or 10 power bars! I'm psyched. This is gonna be great. RECOMMENDED!
