Description

Manoeuvring larger vessels in the confines of a busy harbour or marina can challenge even a skilled crew. Cross winds and tides can be difficult to overcome with conventional propulsion and steering gear, particularly when mooring ‘stern to’. Lewmar Custom Thrusters can help provide additional control just when you need it, at the touch of a button or the move of a joystick. The Lewmar range of thrusters is suitable for sail or power vessels up to 164ft.

■ Ideal for higher performance sailing yachts and fast-planning or semi-displacement hulls

■ Raised position offers a completely fair hull section causing minimum drag

■ No hydraulic motors or hoses are immersed in the water

■ Can be mounted further forward in the vessel without additional space intrusion into the forepeak

■ Enhanced thrust performance from a lesser power input

■ Better performance per HP than standard tunnel Thruster

■ Bronze or Aluminium hub

■ Manual override
