Designed with kayak anglers in mind, the Newport Kayak Series trolling motors build on the tried and true design of the NV Series trolling motors, featuring a height adjustable 24-inch shaft for correct depth placement. Extended cabling provides for flexible battery placement, ensuring compatibility with all transom mount kayaks, canoes, and paddle boats. Five forward speeds and three reverse speeds allow for a smooth and efficient ride.


Fishing from a kayak allows you to get in close to the action without scaring away bass and other shallow water fish. Fighting water currents and navigating the wakes and chop of bigger boats can be extremely time consuming and draining. Utilizing a trolling motor allows kayakers to quickly access their favorite fishing spot, so they can spend the day fishing and not paddling. The ultra-quiet operation of our Kayak Series trolling motor ensures a stealthy approach, placing you right on top of fish bigger boats can only dream of finding.

Trolling looks and installed great, will have to wait a bit to see how it runs, though I expect it to perform very good.

Excellent Kayak Motor

I installed the 55 thrust on my Kilroy kayak for trolling and checking jug lines. What a great piece of equipment for a kayak! Light weight, easy to hook up and take down, excellent speed options for trolling and moving across the lake. I really like the motor and highly recommend!

We will be receiving I think our 5th NK-300. As a kayak dealer I really don’t need to outfit crazy fishing kayaks or sell motors . But with NuCanoe ‘s electric propulsion system paired with the new Newport Vessels NK-300, kayaking is getting a bit crazy and I am a 70 year old that loves going fast.
