“Newport is proud to move our industry forward with a totally redefined, emissions-free alternative to traditional gas-powered motors,” said Josh Neville, head of marketing at Newport. “We want anglers to experience the freedom from hassle, cost and maintenance, so we created a motor as simple and clean as the adventure it’s designed to power. Our NT300 and NK300 are designed to usher in a new era of cleaner adventures for boaters and anglers without sacrificing the capability of gas-fueled counterparts.”
