Electric Retractable Thrusters

Retractable ThrustersHome

Combining the cost effective simplicity of DC electrics with the high performance characteristics of retractable units, the electric retractable thruster range is ideal for modern sailing yachts and super fast motor yachts.

Retracting down to reach ideal immersion depth, all retractable bow thrusters offer exceptional power efficiency. Furthermore, when retracted in the up position these units leave clean smooth hull lines thus not affecting the yacht’s performance.

Installed further forward (or aft) in the hull than is possible for tunnel thrusters, retractable thrusters offer a better turning moment on the yacht thus producing greater manoeuvrability.

  • Retract to leave smooth hull lines
  • When deployed ideal immersion depth is achieved
  • Patented composite drive legs
  • Zero maintenance
  • Case hardened spiro-conical gears
  • Line shields
  • Purpose built DC motors
  • Electronic control boxes for unrivaled safety features
  • Safe, high power connections
  • Purpose built high specification DC contactors
