Sideshift’s Revolutionary New Pontoon Thruster

It’s Time to Shift Your Thinking About Docking a Pontoon Boat

From the company that invented the externally mounted bow thruster, Sideshift introduces the PT230, the world’s first fully retractable thruster – for a pontoon boat!

With their shallow draft, light weight and significant windage, pontoon boats are notoriously difficult to handle around a dock or slipway. Add a strong crosswind or current and the task can become a real exercise in frustration, and may even compromise safety with your loved ones and friends

Perfect for Any Pontoon Boat

 

Installed easily in a few hours and perfect for either double, or tri- pontoon configurations, the powerful single prop motor sits at home under the deck in its rugged, marine grade anodized aluminum housing, ready for use when you need it!

24′ Pontoon Boat – Retractable Bow

To deploy, simply press the helm-mounted actuator switch and within seconds the PT230 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 PT230 out of harm’s way at all speeds including wide open throttle, and it doesn’t interfere with beaching or trailering your boat.

As an added bonus, the PT230 includes Sideshift’s popular remote control key fob that puts precision control of the thruster in the palm of your hands. Your first mate can now have full control of the bow to secure the lines and avoid any miscommunication.

Take the stress out of docking or close quarter maneuvers with the revolutionary PT230, the perfect complement to any pontoon boat

Are You Docking Like a Pro, or Being the Shore Entertainment?

Does the thought of taking your boat out on the water on a windy day make you more stressed out than excited? Are you using your boat less and less because of your fear of docking?  You are not alone.

Docking can be one of the most stressful experiences you will face as a boat owner. Worrying about damaging your boat or your neighbours boat can turn a beautiful day on the water into a stressful nightmare.

That’s where SideShift can help. Most of our customers purchase a SideShift thruster system for one or more of the following reasons:

  • I Want to Be Able to Park My Boat with Confidence:  Slips are getting tighter, and there are times when the wind just won’t cooperate.
  • I Want to Stop Worrying about Damaging My Boat and My Neighbours Boat:  Our boats are major investments and I don’t want to risk damage every time I want to go out on the water.
  • I Want to Be Confident Exploring New Places:  I bought my boat so that I could explore new waters, but I need more precise control to navigate unknown marinas and locks with confidence.
  • I Want to Be Able to Dock in Any Condition:  Windy conditions make docking too unsafe for me to manage on my own or with my spouse.
  • I Want My Boating to Be Fun, Including Docking:  Boating is fun, but docking is stressful and I’m tired of the anxiety that comes with docking in difficult conditions.

Do any of these points hit close to home? Then a Sideshift thruster system might be the perfect answer for you.

Ultimate Control

No matter what weather you’re in, Sideshift is there to help guide your boat home safely and easily, every time. Our pivot point advantage and unique prop-in-water design deliver stronger, more immediate performance than conventional tunnel thrusters. In stressful docking situations seconds count, and Sideshift delivers the performance you need.

World-Class Support

For over a decade, thousands of customers in over forty countries have put their trust in Sideshift bow and stern thrusters. Our success is no secret. All of our products have been purpose-built for the most extreme weather conditions. Using only the highest quality materials, we provide a comprehensive two year warranty and we back it all up with the most responsive product support team in the industry.

Why Sideshift Outperforms Other Docking Solutions

Our bow and stern thrusters rely on a revolutionary design pioneered by Sideshift that places the thrusters on the outside of the hull, rather than inside.

This unique design allows for quiet operation, better response and easy installation, all at a lower installed cost than any competing thruster solution.

Sideshift bow and stern thrusters are mounted externally to your boat, Unlike tunnel thrusters that have the motor mounted inside the hull producing significant noise and vibration, Sideshift thrusters are silent and vibration free.

Sideshift thrusters’ external mounting position places our 8” aluminum propellers in direct contact with the water, providing instant response when seconds count. Conventional tunnel thrusters have to move water through a tube or “tunnel” to provide thrust, which can delay response, wasting valuable seconds in a critical docking situation. In addition, our external mounting system places the thruster further forward or astern on the boat, which provides a pivot-point advantage and more immediate response.

When you buy a bow or stern thruster from Sideshift, you’re dealing with the industry pioneers behind external thruster technology. We help you every step of the way to ensure that you get the right product, along with unlimited phone support from our team of technical experts.

Is Sideshift Right for Your Boat?

Sideshift’s bow and stern thruster systems are perfect for most boats between 20 and 60 feet in length, and up to 70 feet for houseboats.

Our bow and stern thrusters are particularly suited to:

  • Cruisers
  • Trawlers
  • Sports Boats
  • Sailboats
  • Houseboats
  • Pontoon Boats
  • Catamarans

Choosing the right bow and stern thruster is as easy as picking the product that matches the length of your boat. And installation is so easy that it can be done while your boat is still in the water!

How does Sideshift Compare to Tunnel Thrusters?

What would you say if we told you that you could get better performance, easy installation, silent operation, and less drag for an installed cost up to 50% lower than a conventional tunnel thruster?

How do I Install Sideshift Thrusters?

Installation

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!
