Product Description

With an adjustable 36 inch fiberglass composite shaft, the 62lb NV Series is built to fit all transom mount personal watercraft including inflatables boats, jon boats, tenders, kayaks, and more. The motor's 8 speeds (5 forward speeds and 3 reverse speeds) provides complete control for a smooth ride. The 62lb thrust trolling motor comes with a 3 blade propeller (10 inch diameter) for optimal performance and runs on any 12-volt Deep Cycle battery or Marine battery (not included).  

This Newport Vessels trolling motor is the ideal balance between power and portability and only weighs 23lbs, making it the most balanced electric trolling motor on the market. Built for both Freshwater and Saltwater applications, you also get a very versatile multi-purpose trolling motor.

NV Series 62lb Thrust Electric Trolling Motor Comes With:
  • 62lb Thrust Trolling Motor
  • 3-Blade Propeller Kit
  • 60 Amp Circuit Breaker

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.

Newport Vessels recommends a 60 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 circuit breaker is included with your motor, and can be found in the propeller box. 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 62lb thrust electric trolling motor is pretty unique in the pound thrust it is able to offer while only using a 12-volt battery. Minn Kota’s Traxxis 70 and Motorguides’s Varimax 75, are the most comparable to our 62lb thrust electric trolling motor, yet these two competitor’s motors need 24-volts to operate. An extra battery is an added cost and the weight issues are very important for anyone. Another key factor about Newport Vessels 62lb trolling motor, is that it can be use in both freshwater and saltwater, while the Minn Kota motor can only be used in saltwater, and the Motorguide motor can only be used in freshwater. All of these key aspects make Newport Vessels the right brand, while offering a competitive package.

    Using 62 lbs thrust motor on a Santana 20 sailboat. Using it to move in or out of tight docking location. Run time is only 2-3 minutes. With sails down, low wind and calm waters it moves the boat 2-3 mph. Easy to shorten the shaft by 10 inches, Doesn't need to be that long for my sailboat. Shorter is easier storage. Easy to order with fast delivery

    Rhecmotor arrived as stated, in good condition except for a typical hole made fo ease of picking up carrying the carton.Suggest the cardboard box design incorporate some grab slots.
    I have used the motor twice both times worked as expected
    The first time was a long distance cruise for testing out. It was so quiet that at times I had to check that it was still running.
    As the battery dropped in voltage below 6 volt, the blue LEDs on the top of the steering box switched off, but the motor was still running at reduced spin.
    I have yet to check to know if the motor performance at reduced voltage is not affected in continued use and be damaged.
