Ve­tus’ new re­tractable thruster is de­signed to make the dock­ing ex­pe­ri­ence eas­ier, faster and more en­joy­able. Com­pact, light­weight and cor­ro­sion re­sis­tant, the new thruster can be placed right in the bow, cre­at­ing op­ti­mum lever­age and gen­er­at­ing more power. Be­cause the thruster is not con­nected di­rectly to the hull, there is less noise and vi­bra­tion. Safe and child­proof, the thruster’s ro­bust, com­pact de­sign makes it ideal for both power and sail boats, shal­low draft ves­sels and any ves­sel where space is at a premium. Quick to de­ploy and re­tract, it can even be po­si­tioned in the stern. The thruster ro­tates as a sin­gle unit and the lid closes flush with the hull, shut­ting out light, for min­i­mal drag and vir­tu­ally no marine growth. Com­bined with the thruster’s less in­tri­cate de­sign, fewer moving parts and com­pletely cor­ro­sion-free sub­merged parts, there is also less main­te­nance. Suit­able for ves­sels up to 20m long, all six Ve­tus re­tractable thruster mod­els come with an op­tional con­trol panel.
