Product Description

The Newport Vessels Kayak Series 36lb electric trolling motor is designed specifically for kayak fishing. We leveraged our years of experience designing trolling motors and created a motor that fits the unique needs of kayak anglers. This is the first motor designed for use with the low profile hulls of kayaks, to offer category leading performance in a reliable, durable, and affordable package. All of our motors come with our one year warranty, and are backed by our California based, industry renowned customer service team!

By incorporating the popular features, and tried and true design of our NV Series motors, we have developed a kayak trolling motor which delivers optimal performance for all canoes and kayaks. Our 24” height adjustable shaft allows for proper depth placement on any kayak or canoe. The extended the battery cabling allows for flexible battery placement, ensuring compatibility with nearly all transom mount kayaks. The motor features five forward speeds and three reverse speeds, this allows for a smooth and efficient ride. The bright blue, 5 LED battery indicator ensures you know how much run time is left on your current battery charge. The Newport Vessels 36lb thrust Kayak Series motor comes equipped with a 2-blade propeller for reduced drag, balancing efficiency and thrust for optimal performance. Like most of our NV Series, the 36lb thrust Kayak Series trolling motor is powered by one 12-volt Deep Cycle or marine battery.

Kayak fishing allows you to get in close to the action without scaring away bass and other shallow water fish. By using a trolling motor on your boat, you can quickly access your favorite cove, this means you spend the day fishing, not fighting the current or paddling through chop and the wakes of bigger boats. The ultra quiet operation of our 36lb thrust motor ensures a stealthy approach, placing you right on top of prey bigger boats can only dream of finding.


** Newport Vessels highly recommends a 40 amp manual reset circuit breaker in the outboard motor leads within 1.8m (72 inches) of the battery for this motor; this should be connected to the positive lead.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 weeds, rocks, fishing lines etc, the circuit breaker will cut off the power automatically to prevent damage to electrical components.

How do Newport Vessels trolling motors stack up against Minn Kota and MotorGuide? 


Newport Vessels NV Series 55lb thrust electric trolling motor stands out from major competitors like Minn Kota and MotorGuide thanks to its exceptional features and unmatched value. Both brands make comparable thrust motors, however Newport Vessels offers better features at a lower cost. One of the main ways in which the NV Series 55lb trolling motor stands out against the rest is it’s compatibility with saltwater. It is the most affordable saltwater compatible motor on the market, with performance and features which are unmatched by Minn Kota's equivalent Riptide and MotorGuide's R3 model, the NV 55lb is an easy choice for anglers looking for a reliable, durable, and affordable electric trolling motor, which outperforms its more expensive competitors. Our motor is built with Zinc, aluminum, and stainless steel components, allowing for dependable saltwater performance, and incorporates key features such as its sacrificial zinc anode. Another key feature of our motor is the 5-point LED meter incorporated into the top of the motor head, ensuring you always know how much battery life remains. The Minn Kota Riptide Transom uses only a 4 point LED while the MotorGuide R3 Saltwater only has a push to test battery button, with very limited usability. The 30-inch fiberglass composite shaft on Newport Vessels 55lb thrust electric motor is guaranteed for life, is very strong and offers optimal depth range for most transom mount boats including Jon boats, bass boats, skiffs, dinghies, canoes and more. The Newport Vessels 55lb thrust electric trolling motor offers an excellent combination of performance and features, in an affordable package. All of our products are supported by our exceptional California based customer service team, and are backed by our product warranty.
