Select Color: 

To deploy, simply press the helm-mounted actuator switch and within seconds the HB350 drops down into position, stopping automatically at the perfect depth. From here precision guidance is right at your fingertips with the simple joystick control to swing your bow in any direction, regardless of wind or current. An audible alarm and position sensor ensure operator awareness of the thruster at all times, preventing accidental damage.

Saltwater proven, whisper quiet and water-cooled, the HB350 Houseboat Thruster features two rugged 8” aluminum props, marine-grade anodized aluminum housing and stainless steel hardware. Shipped as a complete kit with thruster, controller, wireless joystick(no wire run to the helm!), wireless remote key fob, wiring harness, mounting hardware, fuse/fuse holder with digital voltage indicator and battery switch, installing the HB350 Houseboat Thruster takes only a few hours and can be done either in-water or on-land.

The World’s First Retractable Thruster – For a Houseboat

With their shallow draft and significant windage, houseboats can be extremely difficult to handle around a dock on the best of days. With the introduction of the HB series of retractable thrusters, Sideshift has set the standard for a powerful, easy-to-install thruster for houseboats up to 80′.

Makes Houseboat Docking a Breeze

Installed easily in a few hours as a DIY project, or by any marina or boatyard, the powerful dual prop thruster sits at home under the bow in our rugged, marine grade anodized aluminum housing, ready for use when you need it!

To deploy, simply press the helm-mounted actuator switch and within seconds the thruster drops down into position, stopping automatically at the perfect depth. From here precision guidance is right at your fingertips with the simple joystick control to swing your bow in any direction, regardless of wind or current. Not only does docking become much easier and safer, but you will experience stress-free handling and control in all close quarters situations.

The compact, low profile housing design keeps the thruster out of harm’s way at all speeds, and it doesn’t interfere with beaching or shallow water situations.

As an added bonus, our HB Series thruster includes Sideshift’s popular remote control key fob that puts precision control right in the palm of your hand. You or your first mate can now have full control of the bow from anywhere on the boat or dock, to secure the lines and avoid any miscommunication.

Sideshift houseboat thrusters are perfect for houseboats from 30′ to 70′ in length*. Our under-deck mounted, fully-retractable houseboat thrusters have several key advantages and features, including:

  • Fully retractable 12/24VDC actuation system
  • Fast 6 second deployment time
  • Powerful, 5hp or 7.5hp thruster motor for instant response
  • Easy DIY installation
  • Whisper quiet

* Contact factory for boats longer than 80′

Do-It-Yourself Installation or leave it to the professionals – it’s your choice.

Houseboat Thruster Installation Manual

Our thrusters mount easily using our unique, universal mounting system. Virtually any V-shaped bow, pontoon or stern can be accommodated.

And, to make things even simpler, our thruster systems now come standard with our wireless joystick technology. The included wireless joystick control offers simple plug and play for the helm-to-motor controller connection, eliminating the hassle of long wire-runs, and shaving hours off installation time.

Do-It-Yourself

Installing a Sideshift bow and stern thruster is so easy that you can do it yourself in less than a day. Other thruster systems can cost thousands of dollars to install and take up to a week to complete. Not Sideshift! Just follow the on-line video and easy, step-by-step instructions that are included with every kit to get your boat out on the water faster. And we’re always available to provide phone support if any questions come up.

Local Installers

Or, if you aren’t comfortable installing a Sideshift thruster yourself, you can take it to your local marina or boatyard to let the professionals handle it. Unlike tunnel thrusters which can cost thousands of dollars to install, Sideshift thrusters can be installed for as little as $800-$1,200. Our thrusters have been specifically designed for easy installation by any marine mechanic, and as always, we’re available to speak with your installer if there are any questions.

Warranty

All Sideshift thrusters are protected by our comprehensive 2-year warranty . If you have any issues at all with your thruster, just give us a call. At Sideshift, we always work to make sure every customer is completely satisfied!
