Bow & Stern Thruster
Bow and Stern Thrusters
Equipment mounted or built into the bow or stern of the vessel, the thruster is a propulsion device used to make the vessel more easily manoeuvrable especially when docking or in low speed. The Captain can turn the vessel to the port or starboard side without engaging the main propusion system of the vessel. Thrusters are available in a wide range of sizes and applications for either leisure or commercial vessels.
