What Are Thrusters?
What is the purpose of a thruster? The thruster is a propulsion device that’s attached to the bow or the stern of the boat. It helps to steer the boat and encourages its momentum. There are many different types of thrusters. To suit all needs, we supply a wide range of electric thrusters for our customers. This includes the following variations:
- Standard thrusters
- Extended runtime thrusters
- Retractable bow thrusters
- Ignition protected thrusters
- Rim drive thrusters

The Role of the Windlasses
The windlass is the machine used to lift and lower the ship’s anchor. Our team provides a wide range of windlass options and performs attentive installation to improve your boat’s functionality. Due to our years of expertise, we offer insightful advice for maintaining your windlass system. It’s important to use a chain stopper that mirrors the shape and size of your windlass. However, you should never utilize the chain stopper or windlass as a mooring point. As a safety precaution, always keep the boat’s engine running while moving the anchor.
