Vetus Bow Thruster 6012B

Vetus Bow Thrusters
Bow Thruster 6012B and 6024B

The Vetus 60 electric bow thruster improves lateral maneuverability of boats with sideways thrust power of 132 pound-force (lbf).  Install them below the waterline in the bow of the hull for advanced maneuverability in tight spaces. When traditional line handling is not a possibility, such as a short-handed crew, thrusters provide immeasurable peace of mind during stressful maneuvering around the dock.

Vetus bow thrusters are equipped with a streamlined bronze tail piece. This has proven to be stronger and more durable than other materials sometimes used, while creating the minimum of turbulence, lowest efficiency loss and lowest noise levels.
