TROLLING MOTOR FOR KAYAKS

The kayak trolling motor by Newport Vessels is designed with kayak anglers in mind. This is the first kayak specific motor on the market to offer good performance in a reliable, well produced package, at an affordable price

The 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. It uses extended cabling to provide 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. The five LED light battery indicator shows the current charge of the battery, allowing the user to estimate the remaining runtime. The kayak trolling motor comes with a durable propeller, balancing efficiency and power for optimal performance. The kayak trolling motor is powered by one 12-volt deep cycle or marine battery (not included). See our battery guide here.

Each kayak motor comes with our 2 year warranty and is backed by our California based, industry renowned customer service team!

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?

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.

This Motor Includes:
Other Accessories Needed for Operation:
  • 12V Deep Cycle or Marine Battery (Lead-Acid) rated at least 50 amp hour (ah). Amp hours will determine the run time of the motor.
  • 12V Battery Charger. 
  • Railblaza Kayak Motor Mount (Optional)

MOTOR WORKS GREAT ON MY 10 FT BASS RAIDER BOAT

i had bought a few other trolling motors brands over the past few years for my 10.2 plastic bass raider boat and none of them seemed to hold up very well and did not even come close to the power of this newport motor.i have had the motor a little over a year now and had only a couple minor issues that newport took care of right away.i would recommend this motor for anyone with a kayak or a bass raider style plastic boat like i have ,they do a very good job and plenty of power and love the battery indicator lights.great job newport vessels.

I would definitely buy from this company again!

It is almost strange to get great customer service anywhere, anymore. I did receive this while deciding what to purchase and after my purchase as well. I have never had a trolling motor, so I had a lot of questions. When I emailed my questions over the period of a week, I would get a return email with my answer, ALWAYS on the same day! WOW!! I attached my Newport Vessels trolling motor to a kayak that certainly was never meant to have a motor on it. The motor arrived quickly, boxed securely and was straight forward in setting up on my boat. I thank the workers at this company for walking me through my purchase and getting the information that I desired to know the answers to. Wes
