Hydraulic thrusters are available in tunnel sizes 7-1/4” (100mm) through 24” (610 mm). Investment in in-house product development, testing, manufacturing, assembly and quality control are major reasons why Side-Power is the leading thruster brand today. Hydraulic retracting thrusters are also available in the 240 mm (10”) and 300 mm (12”) sizes, which are particularly appropriate for sailboats and motor vessels with limited draft.
Side-Power thrusters are respected for their superior performance, quieter operation, and rugged reliability making them the choice of leading boat builders around the world.
The 12” (300mm), 16” (412mm), 20” (513 mm) and 24” (610mm) metal prop thrusters are particularly designed for the rugged demands of the commercial market. The two largest sizes offer the option to change gear oil in place without the need to haul the vessel. Multiple motor options to match hydraulic system pressure and flow.
