Garmin expands Force Kraken trolling motor series to accommodate a broader range of boat sizes

Garmin Australasia, the world’s most innovative and recognised marine electronics manufacturer, today announced its Force® Kraken trolling motor series is now available with a 48-inch shaft length to accommodate smaller boat sizes, including pontoons, flats boats, microskiffs and more. Kraken is engineered with a pivot-style mount for easy installation on boats where bow space is limited and offers anglers cutting-edge features, advanced precision and seamless integration – and there is no other motor on the market more powerful1.  

“The addition of another shaft length option to our award-winning Force trolling motor series reinforces our commitment to provide best-in-class trolling motors to all our customers. Force remains at the forefront of power and efficiency, and we’re pleased to expand our Kraken series with an additional 48-inch size that’s perfect for boats with a smaller freeboard.” –Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales

What anglers love about Kraken:

Robust and reliable design backed by award-winning support

Led by decades of marine industry expertise and innovation, Kraken is engineered for harsh marine environments and built to withstand the rigors of extreme fishing conditions. The propeller is designed with a thinner leading edge to reduce resistance and maximise thrust, while the trailing edge is engineered to decrease aeration of the water that can cause cavitation and interfere with thrust. Rugged and durable, the sturdy composite shaft and all components have advanced corrosion and saltwater protection. It’s backed by a 3-year limited warranty and a lifetime limited warranty on the shaft, along with support through an ever-increasing servicing dealer network.

Available now, the 48-inch Kraken is offered in both black and white with Recommended Retail Prices of $6,599.00 and $6,199.00, respectively. Other Kraken models include a 63-, 75- and 90-inch shaft length in white, and 63- and 75-inch lengths in black. All black Kraken models are sold with a GT56UHD transducer.
