Newport Vessels has spent two years developing an affordable kayak motor that allows you to travel farther, cover more water and spend more time fishing. The lightweight NK-180S kayak motor features a 24V brushless motor that produces exceptional power, smooth acceleration, with a top speed of five knots on most kayaks. It fits most fishing kayaks and can be easily mounted using the four bolt aluminum motor mount. The NK-180S can accommodate pedal steering or a fixed mounted position for steering with rudder or paddle. The variable speed throttle controller is equipped with a digital screen that shows motor/battery status and has an emergency stop key for safety. Where ever you fish, whether it’s saltwater or fresh, tidal marsh to the Tennessee River, the NK-180S from Newport Vessels will change the way you fish!
