Product Description

Newport Vessels' Original L Series 62lb Thrust Electric Trolling Motor is still the high-end benchmark motor made with premium materials and methods and uses the latest in modern design. With an adjustable 40 inch fiberglass composite shaft, the Newport Vessels trolling motor is built to fit all Newport Vessels inflatable boats as well as almost all other transom mount vessels, inflatables boats, fishing boats, tenders, dinghies, kayaks, and small boats. 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).



The ideal balance between power and portability.  This incredibly powerful and durable motor only weighs 23lbs, making it the best combination of power and portability available on the market.  Built to withstand all water environments, this trolling motor is designed to withstand both freshwater and saltwater applications.

L Series 62lb Thrust Electric Trolling Motor Comes With:

  • 62lb 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.
  • 60 Amp Manual Reset Circuit Breaker (Available for purchase from Newport Vessels HERE)

    Newport Vessels highly 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 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 L-Series 62lb thrust electric trolling motor is a pretty unique for because of 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 competitors motor’s need 24-volts to operate the motor. An extra battery is added cost and weight that 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 at the lowest price on the market.

  2. Solid Motor 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Dec 2014

    Very solid so far. A great price for a saltwater motor with lots of power. I've used it for about 2 weeks and it's been great. I did break a prop, but that that was my fault. I was fishing in shallow water and hit a rock pretty hard. I bought a replacement prop and it worked just fine.
