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 thruster
offer exceptional power efficiency. Furthermore, when retracted in the up
position these units leave clean smooth hull lines thus not affecting the
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.
The largest electric thruster in the Max Power range, the VIP 150 electric is
a vertically retracting DC thruster. Available
in two thrust ratings: 12V & 24V, the VIP 150 Electric is particularly well
suited to boats from 45’ to 60’.
High performance & excellent reliability
have made this unit an industry standard for nearly 10 years. Recently upgraded
the VIP 150 Electric offers a new control system and all the safety features
common to Max Power bow and stern thrusters.
* Thrusters are designed to run at 10.75V on 12V units and 22V on 24V
units. Higher voltages will result in higher thrust ratings, higher power
consumption, and a reduced duty cycle.
* Performance data is given for a thruster deployed at an immersion depth of
one tunnel’s diameter, and this within a variation of + / - 6%.
* Only available with bronze driveleg
