Bow and stern thrusters
Electric or hydraulic power source
Bow and stern thrusters whether retractable or
tunnel require a power source. On a yacht this can
be either a 12/24V DC electric motor or a
hydraulic motor.
The combined use of a bow and stern thruster
adds a greater level of control when manoeuvring
in difficult conditions or tight corners.
Turning on the spot or even stepping the entire
yacht sideways becomes possible. Max Power
offers stern thruster adapters for the entire
tunnelthruster range. A range of Ignition Protected
thrusters is also available enabling the use of a
stern thruster in habitually damp zones.
The hydraulic motor will need to draw power from a
thermal engine (via a hydraulic pump) or a remote
mounted DC motor (also via a hydraulic pump). The
DC motor will draw power directly from a battery
bank as do direct electric thrusters
