The biggest advantage of a bow thruster is the ease with which you can maneuver in ports, bridges and locks. Due to the extra control, you have less chance of damage to your hull. You no longer have to perform exciting actions with ropes and the like.Request quote

A tube is placed in the hull of your vessel. The bow thruster is mounted on or in this tube, depending on the type of bow thruster. A control panel is then mounted and connected to the bow thruster. This allows you to maneuver better from now on.
Depending on your vessel and your budget, we choose the right bow thruster together. We have a suitable bow thruster available for every vessel. You can choose from the following brands: Craftsman Marine, CUPA and our own brand: Drinkwaard.
Installing a bow thruster is specialist work. Our strength lies in the details. Consider, for example, the professional elimination of electrical cabling. We also have a specialist for polyester work and a specialist for steel work.

We install bow thrusters throughout the country. We come to you with our mobile workshop. We take everything we need for this more. That way we can install your bow thruster neatly and you are not obliged to come to us in Sliedrecht.
A bow thruster will make mooring a lot easier for you. You have already read that. But if you really want to do it right, then you also immediately take a stern thruster. We are now working on saving you costs. Where the stern thruster is at the front, the stern thruster is mounted at the rear.
Before you can make a choice, you first want to know the costs. We get that. Call or email (you will have a price indication within 12 hours on working days). Would you rather come by? No problem. We look forward to welcoming you in our showroom in Sliedrecht. It is open from Monday to Saturday.
Please note: Our lead times may be longer than usual due to the many requests.Request quote
