How to choose this product

retractable-thruster

A retractable thruster is a propeller, generally at the bow, which can be retracted into the hull when not in use.

Applications

These devices are used primarily as a bow thrusters.

Technologies

Such thrusters are mounted on a pivoting platform whose underside conforms to the exterior lines of the hull. Thus, it creates no drag or disturbance when closed.

How to choose

Choice will depend on necessary power, thruster dimensions, type of propulsion and transmission, and space available within the hull.

Advantages

- Fewer appendages
- Reduced drag
