Vetus Thruster STE5512D
Easy docking, no drag, less noise Even for the more experienced skipper, it can be difficult to maneuver the boat in harsh wind conditions and strong currents. The new line of retractable Vetus bow thrusters can be placed in shallow parts of the hull and will not disturb its smooth lines.
This low drag solution will make your docking experience easier, faster and just plain more enjoyable.
Optimum forward placement in the bow, while maintaining depth by deployment
Less noise and vibration as it is not directly connected to the hull
Optimum tunnel length with minimal losses
Virtually no marine growth, as there is no light when thruster is in retracted and closed position
May be placed in the stern in (both sailing and motor) boats where it is not possible to install a tunnel thruster
Less drag as the lid is flush to the hull
Suitable for power vessels up to 20 metres.
