Retractable Thruster Packages

Retractable Thruster Packages | Bow Thrusters Direct | Supplied by bowthrustersdirect.com

Retractable thrusters are for boats that cannot fit a tunnel thruster or do not wish to have an external thruster under the boat. The retractable thruster is the solution. Side-Power have designed a product range that is focused on practical sturdiness, uncompromised safety and quick deployment.

The retractable thrusters are built with the same high safety standards as all Side-Power products. They incorporate the important benefits introduced with the SE series thrusters. Our focus is on safety, a totally integral part of the product design. So that everything from build quality to ease of installation is thought of to ensure long term reliability.

There are three versions of the retractable thrusters. One model design for direct mold-in, and two designed to be mounted on a flange. The flange can be a mold-in base from Side-Power, or the boat builders can manufacture their own base in materials suited for their hulls or as part of their basic hull design.

The flange mounted models have thruster unit in a casing that will be bolted to a base. This allows for easier installation in hulls made from different materials, as well as in series production where you do not need to mix laminating and engineering type jobs.
