SX50 External thruster, 12V, thru hull Up to 50mm, 150m Thickness hull

SX50 pod thruster with 50-62 kg thrust. Can be mounted in the bow and/or stern, suitable for boats up to 37 feet with a flat or shallow front keel. Its versatile design allows for installation on boats of any hull shape.

The external unit is easy to mount. No GRP work is necessary on boats with a hull thickness of up to 50 mm. The hydropod cover enables mounting under the hull in the water flow for low- and mid-speed vessels.

Remote control is a popular accessory. See some of the important product and safety features below.

The compact SX models are available in four configurations that allow a vast array of installation options in the bow and stern of the boat.

The compact SX models are available in four configurations that allow a vast array of installation options in the bow and stern of the boat.

1. Standard stern thruster

The most compact stern thruster on the market. Minimal height and width requirements.

2. Stern thruster with protection grids

An optimal solution for increased safety during watersport activities or for vessels used in waters with debris or drifting objects.

3. Stern thruster with cowls

Many vessels have a hull design requirement on the boat’s transom that disturbs the water flow to and from the stern thruster, thus making it less efficient. The adjustable cowls direct the water flow to be less disturbed, obtain a higher efficiency level, and allow a shallow installation closer to the waterline.

4. Hydropod bow- and stern thruster

With the hydropod low-drag cover, the SX can be mounted under the hull in the water flow for low- and mid-speed vessels. The optimal design adds minimal drag and will, in most installations, not be noticeable. The in-flow configuration is perfect for boats where it is difficult to fit a tunnel thruster or, for example, as a stern thruster for cruising sailboats.

Features

Ultra-compact
Fits where others won’t. The SX’s versatile installation possibilities and small size make it a perfect choice for vessels whose inside configuration does not allow a standard thruster installation.

Easy installation
Only requires drilling three small holes with a minimal footprint on the hull. No fiberglass work is necessary. Compatible with standard Side-Power products, control panels, and accessories.

Minimal noise emission
With a short and optimally designed tunnel, vibration-absorbing sleeves on all hull connections, 5-bladed Q-Prop™, and the fully submerged unit, the thruster operates remarkably quietly.

Safety
Ignition protected. It can advantageously be installed in stern locations/ on high-octane fuel gasoline boats due to a hermetically sealed housing. ISO 8846 and UL 1500 certified. Galvanic isolation kit for metal/aluminum hulls and safety protection grids available as accessories.

Long run times
The external placement of the unit provides a more efficient water cooling and allows a prolonged duration per cycle of the unit than with traditional bow and stern thrusters. Even longer run times in the PRO™ version when running at reduced speed.

Optimal efficiency
The optimum efficiency of the SX models results from a shorter transverse channel and ideal leverage created by more profound and remote positioning away from the pivot point. Provide up to 40 percent higher efficiency than conventional tunnels.

Weight 70 lbs
Dimensions 26 × 23 × 8 in
