Customer Service is not dead!

My X Series - Electric Trolling Motor failed after a few months of use. I was expecting a hassle when I tried to get it fixed or replaced. To my surprise, I got through to Support right away. With in two days, Kipp sent me a new speed switch which we thought was the problem. When I reported that the switch didn't fix the problem, Sierra and Kayleen processed my warranty claim and sent me a new motor within a week. New motor works great and Newport's customer support is exceptional. JC, Lake Tahoe

So far, I've noticed my new X series motor is very quiet and smooth. I really like the low speed which allows me to stand in my wooden drift boat and cast. The highest speed gives plenty of power to get back upstream.


X Series

The versatility of the X-Series trolling motor allows it to be compatible with Newport inflatables as well as all other inflatable boats, kayaks, dinghies, tenders, fishing boats, aluminum fishing boats, and inflatables with a transom.

The 8-speed control system should be powered by a 12-volt Deep Cycle battery or Marine battery in order to propel the X Series' 3 blade propeller, while the LED battery meter indicates the charge status.
