product snapshot

  • 10 Point LED Meter
  • Durable Fiberglass Shaft
  • Saltwater & Freshwater
  • 40" Shaft Length

With an adjustable 40 inch fiberglass composite shaft, the L Series saltwater trolling motor is built to fit all Newport Vessels inflatable boats as well as almost all other transom mount vessels such as sailboats, dinghies, pontoon boats & jon boats, and most personal watercraft. The motor's 8 speeds (5 forward speeds and 3 reverse) provides complete control for a smooth ride in any water condition. 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 or Marine battery (not included).

The ideal balance between power and portability. This incredibly powerful and durable 12v electric trolling motor weighs only 23lbs, making it the best combination of power and portability available on the market. Built to withstand anything you throw at it, this trolling motor is designed to withstand both freshwater and saltwater applications.

All Newport Vessels branded trolling motors are designed to be used with Lead-Acid style Deep Cycle or Marine batteries (Flooded, SLA, AGM or Gel). The use of Lithium batteries is not recommended and won't be compatible with some of the features offered on our motors. For more information, please read our post Lithium Batteries With Trolling Motors?
