36lb Thrust Kayak Series Electric Trolling Motor by Newport Vessels


By incorporating the popular features, and tried and true design of our NV Series motors, we have developed a kayak trolling motor which delivers optimal performance for all canoes and kayaks. Our 24” height adjustable shaft allows for proper depth placement on any kayak or canoe. The extended 5ft 6in battery cabling allows for flexible battery placement, ensuring compatibility with nearly all transom mount kayaks. The 5 forward speeds and 3 reverse speeds makes for a smooth ride in easily adjustable speed increments. The bright blue, 5 LED battery indicator ensures you know how much run time is left on your current battery charge. The 36lb motor comes equipped with a 2-blade propeller (8.9 inch diameter) for reduced drag, balancing efficiency and thrust for optimal performance. Like most of our NV Series, the 36lb thrust Kayak Series trolling motor is powered by one 12-volt Deep Cycle or marine battery. We do not recommend the use of Lithium powered batteries with any of our motors.


All Newport Vessels trolling motors are contracted with the highest quality materials to ensure a long lifespan. Built with saltwater corrosion resistant materials including stainless steel, a sacrificial zinc anode, fiberglass composite shaft and a fiberglass reinforced nylon propeller, our motors are designed to stand up to whatever you throw at them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to connect the circuit breaker? – Yes! The 40 AMP circuit breaker that comes with the motor will help protect your motor from electrical damage.
Is this motor waterproof? – The head w/ handle is not waterproof. Light rain is fine but if there is heavy rain, it’s submerged or sprayed directly with a hose, this will cause issues.
What gauge wire are the battery cables and how long are they? – This motor comes with 5ft 6in 10 AWG cables.
How long does this motor run for? – This entirely depends on the battery capacity or Amperage Hour Rating (Ah) on the battery you are using. We recommend a 50Ah battery at minimum. This will power the motor for roughly 1.5hr at speed 5 continuously and 5.5hrs at speed 3.
Can the head be spun around for Bow Mounting? – Yes! Please contact Newport Vessels for instructions on how to safely do this.
What if I have questions, a problem or need parts? – Contact Newport Vessels! We are here to support our product before and after the sale.
