Boat Diagram

Bow Thrusters of North America nationally installs a complete series of 12V/24V electric and hydraulic thrusters to suit your vessels application. Bow thrusters make docking easier, since they allow the captain to turn the vessel to port or starboard without using the main propulsion mechanism which requires some forward motion for turning. A stern thruster is of the same principle fitted at the stern indicated in example to the right.

We all have at one time rubbed a piling, scuffed a dock, or worse hit another boat while docking. Or that unexpected gust of wind as you approach the dock from a nice day out with family or friends creating a stressful experience. Sometimes those deck hands we have on board enviably drop a line creating stomach acid for the Captain. Then comes the costly gel-coat and glass repair bill to your boat, the other boat, and the construction for a new pier.

That nice day can remain nice with a bow or stern thruster installed on your vessel by Bow Thrusters of North America. Being less dependant on others is always a comfort. A new sense of independence whether if you are with others or single handedly making a day of it. Bow and stern thrusters offer the help you need to be in full control when docking and departing regardless of wind conditions and currents. It will also give you full control allowing maneuvering around tight spots with extreme ease.

Boating is meant to be fun for us all. Why end your day or week on the water with a stressful experience.
