Built for outstanding performance, you can rely on your Side-Power bow thruster or stern thruster systems year after year. Boat builders all over the world are choosing Side-Power for reliability, ease of installation and unrivaled safety features.
Thruster Systems has high-performance five-blade props give an equal performance in both directions and are spline-driven, with no drive pin required. Motors are electronically protected and have self-resetting thermal protection. Hardened and ground level gears and high-integrity seals to ensure quiet and reliable operation.
Besides the thrusters and tunnels (bow, stern or both) – you will need-control cables, -main switches – automatic or manual – fuse & fuse- holder, control panel(s) and main power cables, even a radio remote is a normal part of a thruster system today.
To simplify installation, we recommend using the original Side-Power Automatic Main switch which also has a built-in fuse reducing the number of necessary components. Where the Automatic Main switch is used, you need a 5 lead control cable between the panel and main switch, while only a 4 lead is needed to the thruster or if a manual or other auxiliary main switch and a separate fuse are used.
