Lowrance Ghost 52 and 60

The new Lowrance Ghost 52 and 60 freshwater trolling motors from Lowrance are coming. Since 1957, the electronics brand has never stopped investing in research and development, and today it can please almost every freshwater angler with the Ghost range.

Lowrance Ghost 52 and 60

The new Ghost 52 and 60 models stem from feedback received from bass anglers since the debut of the Lowrance Ghost electric motor. A great success, lots of opinions and even interest from anglers who have higher bows than bass fishing. So here come the 52-inch (132 cm) and 60-inch (152 cm) stems.

Features of Lowrance Ghost 52 and 60 electric motors

Brushless motor

The Ghost’s brushless motor generates 25 percent more thrust than average power. It is also able to last about 45% more hours on a single charge. which amounts to almost an extra day of fishing. In addition, between materials and design, it is designed not to get caught in algae.

No interference with sonar

The Ghost’s brushless motor helps limit and eliminate noise. The ghost has no brushes that wear out and does not emit electromagnetic interference. This allows fishermen the sharpest possible sonar views without interference on the screen.

Display integration

Users can steer, adjust speed, configure navigation of a route or anchor at a current location with the touchscreen of a Lowrance display with SmartSteer interface. Ghost pairs with HDS LIVE, HDS Carbon and Elite-Ti displays via a simple NMEA 2000 connection.

Lowrance plug-and-play sonar

Ghost offers two integrated sonar ogive options, including HDI (CHIRP and DownScan Imaging) and optional Active ImagingT 3-in-1 transducers (CHIRP sonar, SideScan and DownScan Imaging). All motors are equipped with an HDI transducer, but can be upgraded at any time.

Fly-By-Wire Government

Fly-By-Wire’s instant and smooth steering gives the Ghost the feel of a cable-steer engine, but without the mechanical cables. The motor pedal can be customized to your preferences via programmable hotkeys and a Flip Switch that can be moved to allow the trolling motor to be used from either side of the pedal. Mode buttons have LED lights and an audible signal that provides feedback when a mode is activated. The foot control also has a battery level indicator. In addition, Ghost 60 includes a standard remote control for easy control anywhere on the boat.

Sturdy structure

The 360-degree shockproof stand is designed to withstand any impact and automatically realigns once the affected structure is removed. The stem is composite, guaranteed for life, and helps resist impact. It has a built-in stabilizer bar that reduces bounce when gliding on rough water. The pedal cable is secured to the bracket with clips that prevent it from moving on the deck, preventing damage to rods and reels and obstructing the view of Lowrance fishfinders installed nearby.

Versatile installation

The motor weighs less than 1.8 kg compared to equivalent motors with brushes, allowing it to be installed, used and stored more easily. The Ghost is designed to operate in 24- or 36-volt systems, with a thrust of up to 44/54 kg respectively, and allows for future battery and charger upgrades.

Prices of the Lowrance Ghost 52 and 60

The Lowrance Ghost 52 and 60 models will be available in December 2020 and cost €3,304.96 and €3,504.13, respectively. All information at
