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.

Great value and performance

The motor was packaged very good and received in good condition. It is a great replacement for my previous Minn Kota but at a much lower price. It feels very robust and has very good thrust. It is a little heavier than I expected and the mounting bracket was much larger than other similar sized trolling motors. It come with spade type battery connections that have to be bolted on so I changed them to large alligator clips for easy on/off since I use it 3-4 times a week. I use it on a Native Watercraft Ultimate, so much better than expensive Hobie which I also have but rarely use.
