Product Description

With a fully adjustable 36-inch fiberglass composite shaft, this Newport Vessels trolling motor is built to fit nearly all personal watercraft including bass boats, jon boats, and other small to mid size boats. The motor's 8 speeds (5 forward speeds and 3 reverse speeds) make for a smooth and controlled ride. The 86lb thrust electric trolling motor comes with a 3 blade propeller (10 inch diameter) for optimal performance. This motor is made to run with two 12-volt Deep Cycle batteries or Marine batteries (not included).  

NV Series 86lb Thrust Electric Trolling Motor Comes With:

  • 86lb Thrust Trolling Motor
  • 3-Blade Propeller Kit
  • 50 Amp Circuit Breaker

Other Accessories Needed for Operation:

  • 2x 12V Deep Cycle or Marine Battery and Charger with at least 50 Amp Hour Rating on the battery. Amp Hours will determine motor runtime.

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 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.

We use high quality components and construct our trolling motors with Zinc, aluminum, and stainless steel allowing for dependable performance in any water.

  1. Plenty of power but some noise at high speed 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Oct 2017

    I like the motor over all. It has plenty of power. It was able to move my Santana 22 much better than my 12 volt motor (LV 62 lb thrust). But I was a little disappointed in the motor's noise at high speed.

  2. Stood behind the warranty 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2016

    I had a small issue with the transom mount bracket on my 86 lb motor. The guys at NV took care of the problem in an expeditious manner. I'll definitely buy from them again!!

  3. Solid Trolling Motor 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Nov 2015

    This trolling motor is solid. Compared to the big thrust Minn Kota trolling motors that are about three times the cost, the 86 from newport is a no brainer. The plastic is a little less heavy duty, but it's still really solid. The saltwater rating on it makes it a pretty crazy deal for the price.

  4. Power and Style 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Apr 2015

    I bought this 86lb thrust motor to replace an older 55lb thrust minn kota motor. I beat my old motor up pretty good, but overall liked it. I decided to go with the newport 86 model because of all the extra power for a little bit more money. So far i'm 2 months in and I love it. Tonys of power and it looks really cool, especially the blue led lights.
