Electric Tunnel Thrusters

Why do you need electric tunnel thrusters on a boat?

A frequent problem in mooring a yacht or boat is the weak manoeuvrability of the boat. It is a loss of precious time, and, in case of mooring in a storm or a strong wind, it can even cause damage to the vessel’s hull with a pier or another boat.

What are the thrusters doing for you?

  • Allows you to sail when docking and manoeuvring in the difficult conditions of overcrowded yachting clubs.
  • Requires only one crew member to drive a boat of any size.
  • Reduces the probability of hitting another boat or berth, which can cause damage
  • Minimize the risk of injury of crew members or guests during mooring or manoeuvring.
  • Won`t get on your nerves and make your stay on the boat more comfortable.

 Electrical or hydraulic thruster?

Bow and stern thrusters, both retractable and tunnel, require a power supply. On a vessel, it may be a 12/24 V DC power supply or hydraulic drive. The hydraulic transmission shall be supplied by a hydraulic pump from an internal combustion engine or an electric motor. The motor will be powered directly by the battery.

The choice of thruster will depend on the frequency of use, operating time and required engine size.
