What are the different types of Newport Vessels trolling motors?
Newport Vessels has designed a thorough collection of multi use transom mount motors. The NV Series, X Series, and L Series represent the wide variety of models and thrusts in the collection of boat and kayak motors. The NV Series are the next generation of motors that incorporate a 5-point blue battery meter. The X Series motors have a fully adjustable control head that give the user a +/- 30 degrees adjustability. The L Series are the tried and true motors of Newport Vessels. Due to their specially formulated components, all Newport Vessels motors can be used in both fresh and salt water. Most of the models within the Newport Vessels transom mount motor collection can be optimally used on a wide variety of watercraft including; aluminum fishing boats, sail boats, inflatable boats, jon boats, bass boats, pontoon boats, tenders, dinghies, and even kayaks.
It is recommended to install a manual reset circuit breaker in the electric outboard motor leads within 1.8m (72 Inches) of the battery(s). Please refer to the chart above for specific circuit breaker recommended for each motor and owners manual for further details.
