Built for outstanding performance, you can rely on your Side-Power bow thruster or stern thruster year after year. Boat builders all over the world are choosing Side-Power for reliability, ease of installation and unrivalled safety features. This commitment to quality has made the new range of Side-Power thrusters manufactured by Sleipner Motor the market leader This is why leading boat builders over the world choose Side-Power – year after year! Side-Power manufactures the world’s most comprehensive line of thrusters for leisure boats and smaller commercial boats, and we can therefore offer a suitable thruster for almost every boat under 160 feet. To enable the most safe and easy installation as well as the best possible performance for a variety of boats and usages, Side-Power thrusters are offered in several versions to satisfy all requirements.
There are several components in a complete system for your boat; besides the thrusters and tunnels (bow or 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 and further increase the safety, we recommend to use 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 separate fuse is used.
