GHOST Trolling motor

by Evelyn Kivi on 23.07.2019

 Reliable, rugged and built to last, the new ultra-quiet Lowrance® Ghost™ freshwater trolling motor lets anglers fish longer, run faster and move in closer without spooking fish. Ghost has a revolutionary brushless motor with the most thrust and the longest run time of any trolling motor on the market. With integrated Lowrance sonar options, waypoint anchoring and a three-year warranty, Ghost is the new standard for your trolling motor upgrade.

Never spook another fish with Ghost’s brushless motor, which delivers the clearest sonar views, quietest performance and greatest durability. With 25-percent more power and 60-percent greater efficiency, silently cover more water, easily anchor when and where you want – even in strong winds – and stay on the water longer
without draining your battery. With no brushes to wear out, Ghost’s motor ensures greater reliability and longer life.

We put our 60-plus years of innovation and marine electronics expertise to work in designing the Lowrance
Ghost freshwater trolling motor. After years of researching when and why trolling motors fail, we went to work to exceed those standards, building Ghost in-house, from scratch. Four years and 10,000 testing hours later, we have delivered the quietest, most reliable, and most powerful trolling motor on the market.

We found that brushed-motor issues and cable-steer cable failure were the two main causes of trolling motor problems. Neither will be an issue with Ghost, which is powered by a brushless motor that not only eliminates noisy operation, but has no brushes to wear out, ensuring greater reliability and longer life. Ghost’s fly-by-wire steering provides the feel anglers demand from a cable-steer trolling motor, but without the mechanical cables that wear over time. All of this is backed by a Lowrance three-year warranty.  


Key Features:

* Reliable, Own Your Spot: Ghost’s powerful and precise anchoring lets you anchor your boat on a waypoint, at your current location or anywhere on the map – regardless of wind conditions – so you can spend more time fishing and less time maintaining your position. With a simple press of your foot, you can lower or raise your Power-Pole® shallow-water anchor or anchor at your current location using the quick access keys built into the Ghost foot pedal. 

* Silent Operation: So silent, you’ll wonder if it’s running, Ghost allows you to move in closer than ever before with its ultra- quiet brushless motor. Fish will never hear you coming.

* Incredible Performance: Zoom from spot to spot or zip across the cove with up to 25-percent more thrust than competing models putting out 120 pounds of thrust at 36 volts, 97 pounds at 24 volts. Ghost’s brushless motor also delivers 60-percent better run-time efficiency, so you can enjoy the best top-end speed and acceleration without sacrificing battery life. Stay out later and run it harder – you will fish longer with Ghost.

* Total Integration: Steer your boat, adjust your speed, set up route navigation or anchor at your current location with full touchscreen control from HDS LIVE, HDS Carbon and Elite Ti2 displays. Our Pro Team anglers asked us to build a trolling motor with full integration capability, including a foot pedal that could serve as an extension of the display’s user interface. We listened – delivering an all-everything pedal with easily accessible Anchor and Heading Mode quick access keys, plus programmable shortcut keys that can be used for saving waypoints and controlling Power-Pole shallow water anchors.

* Fly-By-Wire Steering: Instant and smooth fly-by-wire steering control gives Ghost the feel of a traditional cable-steer motor, but without the physical cables that wear out over time. 

* Plug-and-Play Lowrance sonar: Ghost is packaged with an HDI nosecone transducer, giving you the high-level performance of Lowrance CHIRP sonar and DownScan Imaging™ right out of the box. Anglers who want to step up to the extreme, high-resolution views beneath and to the sides of the boat can add an optional Active Imaging™ 3-in-1 nosecone with Lowrance CHIRP, SideScan and DownScan Imaging. 

* Configurable Foot-pedal: Configure the Ghost pedal to suit your preferences via programmable shortcut buttons and a Flip Switch that allows the trolling motor to be driven from either side of the pedal. The foot pedal features a battery-level indicator, Anchor and Heading mode quick access keys with LED lights and an indicator beep to provide feedback when a mode is engaged. You can program the shortcut keys to quickly drop a waypoint or lower/raise your Power-Pole shallow-water anchor.

* Interference Free: Ghost’s brushless motor not only runs quieter than common brushed motors, but emits zero electromagnetic interference, ensuring the clearest, interference-free sonar views on your fishfinder display.

* Flexible Installation: The Ghost trolling motor is designed to work with either 24- or 36-Volt systems, making it compatible with any set-up and easier to implement future upgrades to batteries and chargers. 

* 360° Breakaway Mount: breakaway mount is designed to absorb impact, allowing the shaft to deflect away from obstructions and then reposition itself after impact. An integrated stabilizer bar reduces bouncing when running in rough water. 

* Easy to Stow and Go: Ghost has a dual-action gas spring that makes stowing and deploying the motor easier and quieter. Plus, there is no longer a need to align the lower unit before stowing the motor as Ghost auto aligns itself when stowing to lay flat and secure on the mount.
