Lowrance Announces New Ghost Trolling Motors

The world’s most advanced trolling motor design – now for a wider range of boats.

Tulsa, Okla. – Lowrance, a world-leader in fishing electronics since 1957, announced today the expansion of its award-winning Lowrance Ghost freshwater trolling motor design with the new Ghost 52 and 60.

 

The new Ghost 52 and 60 models – with 52- and 60-inch shafts, respectively – bring all the benefits and features of the original Ghost trolling freshwater motor to boats with higher bows. Now there is a Lowrance trolling motor to fit the needs of all bass anglers, as well as a wide range of multi-species and walleye boats.

 

 

Features of the Lowrance Ghost 52 and 60 trolling motors include:

 

Brushless Motor

Ghost’s brushless motor generates thrust that is 25-percent greater than current competitors and delivers 45-percent longer run times on the same charge – equivalent to nearly one additional day of operation. The combination of precision manufacturing, rare-earth materials, and a cutting-edge weedless propeller design provides high-output thrust with long-running efficiency.

 

Zero Sonar Interference

Ghost’s brushless motor helps eliminate noisy operation and unlike common brush motors, has no brushes to wear out, ensuring greater reliability and longer life. The brushless motor emits no electromagnetic interference – giving anglers the clearest sonar views possible with zero onscreen interference.

 

Integration

Users can steer, adjust speed, setup route navigation or anchor at a current location with touchscreen control from a Lowrance display using the SmartSteer™ interface. Ghost pairs easily with HDS LIVE, HDS Carbon and Elite-Ti2 displays via a simple NMEA 2000 connection.

 

Plug-and-Play Lowrance Sonar

Ghost offers two integrated sonar nosecone options, including HDI (CHIRP and DownScan Imaging™) and optional Active Imaging 3-in-1 (CHIRP Sonar, SideScan and DownScan Imaging) transducers. All motors ship standard with an HDI transducer, but can be upgraded with a different nosecone at any time.

 

Fly-By-Wire Steering

Instant and smooth fly-by-wire steering control gives Ghost the feel of a cable-steer motor, but without the mechanical cables that can wear out over time. Regardless of the brand of trolling motor used before, anglers will quickly get comfortable with the innovative Ghost foot pedal, which is completely user-configurable. The pedal can be customized to suit any preference with programmable shortcut buttons and a Flip Switch that can be moved to allow the trolling motor to be engaged from either side of the pedal. The mode buttons have LED lights and an indicator beep to provide feedback when a mode is engaged. The foot control also features a battery-level indicator. In addition, the Ghost 60 includes a standard remote for easy control anywhere on the vessel.

 

Rugged Construction


 

Installation Versatility

The motor weighs 6-pounds less than brushed-motor equivalents, making it easier to install, deploy and stow. Ghost is designed to work in either 24- or 36-volt systems with up to 97- and 120-pounds of thrust respectively, and allows for future battery and charger upgrades.

 

Ghost 52 and 60 models will be available in December 2020.
