Born out of a passion for marine engineering, bowthruster and sternthruster installations were a natural progression for us during the 1980’s. Our association with Sleipner Side-power evolved when we began retro-fitting thrusters into Princess Motor Boats and Moody Yachts.
Bow Thrusters Direct have supplied and installed Sleipner Side-Power Bow thrusters & stern thrusters onto 100’s of boats, what we don’t know isn’t worth knowing.
We are UK based out of state of the art modern offices and workshops in the southwest of England and we operate mobile installation teams throughout the UK and abroad. Whether its supply & fit or just supply, every bowthruster sold is backed by a professional & knowledgeable management team.
Our turn key operation and mobile time-served professional tradesmen and dedicated craftsmen offer the convenience of coming to your boat at its home berth or wherever it is lying.
We will always give you a fixed quote for your Sleipner Side-Power equipment and where possible by arrangement will survey the boat for installations.
We hold stock and most shipments can be dispatched to you on the same day. Thruster installations are planned and are installed sympathetically with the boat.
We only install good quality equipment and Sleipner products have always been known for their uncompromised level for quality and reliability. With our focus on quality and with equal importance on training for our employees we work hard to make sure that Sleipner and the Side-Power brand will always be closely associated with exceptional quality.
We are proud to have attended both Southampton and London boat shows for the past 15 years with Sleipner Side-power.
We always get asked ‘Do I really need a bowthruster, will it benefit me’ Our honest response is ‘No you don’t but you also don’t need a boat but they’re both very nice to have, so let’s talk and see if it’s right for you.
