Bow & Stern Thrusters

Bow & stern thrusters

Side-Power manufactor the world's most comprehensive line of thrusters for leisure boats and smaller commercial boats, and we can therefore offer a suitable thruster for almost every boat under 160 feet. To enable the most safe and easy installation as well as the best possible performance for a variety of boats and usages, Side-Power thrusters are offered in several versions to satisfy all requirements.

Se SeriesThe standard bow and stern thruster series are the base for all our extensive range of DC electric thrusters.

They are fitted in a tunnel through the bow, or into our stern tunnels to use as stern thrusters. The electric motors, solenoids, patented IPC control system and the mechanical parts of the propulsion system are all totally custom designed and built, utilizing the extensive experience gained through years of leadership in the global thruster market.

IP versionsFor demanding environments

The IP – ignition protected – versions are equipped with a hermetically sealed cover around the motor and switch gear. This means that it is safe to use in gasoline boats or other areas where there is a risk of explosive fumes as well as excellent for installation in wet areas (not for submerged installation). Can be used for both bow or stern applications. Most models in both the SE and SEP series are available in IP versions.

SR series Retractable thrusters

Our retractable thrusters are excellent for use as bow or stern thrusters in boats with shallow or flat bottomed hulls, or where a tunnel opening in the hull at all is not desirable. Designed in true Side-Power spirit with reliability and durability as main factors, they are exceptionally sturdy and compact with the same high performance as all other Side-Power thrusters. Unique advantages by use of the latest technology including our S-link intelligent bus control provides a further benefit in use and control for the operator. Available also as speed control versions with the designation SRP

SX ThrustersThe best solution for boats with twin stern drives

The trend in stern thrusters is fitted units for boats with twin stern drives. With a conventional stern thruster installation the waterflow from the thruster can hit the drives and severely reduce the thrust. Side-Power now offers a complete externally mounted unit with a tunnel and hydrodynamic cowls that divert the water past the drives. This stern thruster option can also be the best choice for boats without stern drives, if the inside configuration of the boat's stern makes a standard thruster installation impractical.

EX seriesExternally mounted pod thrusters

The EX series can be installed in most types of boats between 6 and 15 meters independently of hull form, hull material, propulsion and depth. These pod thrusters are an excellent choice where a tunnel thruster cannot be fitted, or as an extremely compact stern thruster. As they are easy to fit they are especially good for retrofitting.

PRO Series

Pro SeriesPRO models with DC Speed Control

The PRO series are basically standard thrusters with the addition of the PRO Proportional system. Providing even more accurate control by fully regulating the power of the thruster as well as providing even longer run times, this is the latest in DC electric thrusters. The noise reduction and automatic ”Hold” function are further benefits provided by the PRO series.
