SIDE-POWER HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS

A hydraulic thruster system is the natural choice when extensive thruster usage or long run cycles are required. We design our hydraulic systems with the style needed for pleasure craft and the reliability necessary for commercial use.

For many boats, a hydraulic system makes economic sense since several functions can run off one central hydraulic source. Once the basic system is in place (pump, reservoir, cooler), adding a function is a matter of adding a  inexpensive valves. This approach is more efficient and cost effective than running each individual function with its own electric motor. Solenoid, fuse and battery switch, especially with larger equipment.

Also hydraulic valves and motors are better choices in harsh environments such as the fore peak, bilge and transom areas, as well as areas requiring ignition protection.

Typical hydraulic applications are thrusters, stabilizers, winches, capstans, cranes, etc.
