Powerful and Affordable Bow Thrusters - SS230

They mount easily on the bows of cruisers, sport boats, sailboats, houseboats, pontoon boats, catamarans, trawlers and more. No expensive tunnel is required. Mounted externally on a V-shaped bow, the forward-most location maximizes turning power and responsiveness for easy maneuvering of narrow waterways and tight corners.

Back confidently into a slip with the simple touch of the joystick or wireless controller. Silent and immediate response is provided by our prop-in-water design, 8” aluminum propellers, and heavy-duty water cooled motor, Saltwater proven, the rugged bow thrusters are anode protected to prevent corrosion. They are finished with anti-fouling paint over epoxy primer. All mounting locations are above the waterline. As a result, installation can be done with the boat in the water.

CRUISER WITH UPPER HELM

A cruiser with an upper helm can often be hard to maneuver and dock. This is because of the upper helm and planning hull. The wind will tend to push the bow of this type of boat. To solve this problem we recommend installing a SIDESHIFT bow thruster. If current is a factor there will be an opposite effect and a stern thruster will be needed. For the ultimate docking solution, install the SIDESHIFT bow and stern thruster combo package.

SPORT CRUISER

A sport cruiser can be hard to maneuver and dock. This is because of the planning hull. The wind will tend to push the bow of this type of boat. To solve this problem we recommend installing a SIDESHIFT bow thruster. If current is a factor there will be an opposite effect and a stern thruster will be needed. For the ultimate docking solution, install the SIDESHIFT bow and stern thruster combo package.

PONTOON BOAT MULTI-HULL

This boat type is often box like in shape. Whether you have strong winds or currents, this type of boat will be pushed evenly. Since most pontoon boats have an out drive maneuvering the stern is manageable. For maximum control of the bow, we recommend installing a SIDESHIFT bow thruster. For the ultimate docking solution, install the SIDESHIFT bow and stern thruster combo package

HOUSE BOAT MONO HULL

This boat type is often box like in shape. Whether you have strong winds or currents, this type of boat will be pushed evenly. Since most pontoon boats have an out drive maneuvering the stern is manageable. For maximum control of the bow, we recommend installing a SIDESHIFT bow thruster. For the ultimate docking solution, install the SIDESHIFT bow and stern thruster combo package

SAIL BOAT

Sail boats often have a fixed keel in the center of the boat. This can create challenges when trying to maneuver and dock when you have strong winds or currents. To solve this problem we recommend installing a SIDESHIFT bow thruster. Whether you use a SIDESHIFT bow or stern thruster the pivot point will always be in the center. For the ultimate docking solution, install the SIDESHIFT bow and stern thruster combo package.

TRAWLER

Trawlers have a displacement hull that is almost as deep in the water at the bow as the stern. The overall shape of the freeboard is usually high from mid ship to stern. The captain of this type of boat will often have difficulty controlling the stern. To solve this problem we recommend installing a SIDESHIFT stern thruster. For the ultimate docking solution, install the SIDESHIFT bow and stern thruster combo package.
