What Are Sleipner (Side-Power) Thrusters?

Sleipner, formerly known as Side-Power, thrusters are the chosen brand by recreational OEM builders across North America and are now gaining traction in the commercial field. Here at Imtra, we are proud to call Side-Power one of our most trusted brands. Discover the wide variety of AC or DC electric, external, retractable, and hydraulic Side-Power thrusters and thruster controls we have available for purchase.



Introducing eVision

When combining our new, state-of-the-art electric motor with the proven Sleipner gear leg design and Q-Prop™ skew propeller, you get a thruster that delivers performance and runtime, never seen before in a DC thruster. The result is the new eVision thrusters.
