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.

■ Suitable for vessels up to 164ft (50m)

■ When not in use, the Thruster retracts into the hull leaving a clean line, so there is no drag

■ The 300 VRTT Hydraulic is capable of developing more than 30HP

■ Bronze or Aluminium hub option

■ Custom extended stroke available

■ Better thruster immersion

■ Can be mounted further forward

■ Better performance per HP than standard tunnel Thruster

■ Manual override

■ 250/300 VRTT 24V DC electric raise/lower
