Bow Thruster

The bow thruster and stern thruster are devices for the manoeuvre of the boat at low speed. The rudder of the boat barely or doesn’t react when the speed of the ship is to low. Bow thrusters can be the solution during mooring.  

Bow Thruster in a Complete Set

allpa supplies Xforce bow thruster sets complete with motor, touchpad control pad with cable, polyester tunnel and fuse. A joystick and main switch are optional. There are two different series: with belt drive (bow thrusters) and direct drive (stern thrusters).

Bow Thruster Installation

The own installation of a thruster is only recommended when the customer is experienced. Errors during the use of bow thrusters are most of the time related to mistakes made while mounting the thruster. The choose of the location on the boat, the installation of the tunnel and the mounting of the electro motor have a major impact on the efficiency of the bow thrusters. Thus expertise on the mounting of bow thrusters and stern thrusters is recommended.

Ease of Control with Bow Thrusters

It can be difficult to control the boat during the mooring and the passing of sluice gates without experienced crew members. Bow thrusters and stern thrusters ease the manoeuvre and small steering mistakes can be corrected easily. The control of bow thrusters is extra easy due to the inclusive touchpad or optional wireless remote control and joystick.
