Hydraulic Retractable Thrusters

When performance is paramount, hydraulic retractable bow thrusters provide a perfect solution. Lightweight, powerful and allowing almost perfect weight distribution, designers and prestigious yards have consistently specified Max Power thrusters over the years. Max Power offers two product ranges in this family: the vertically retracting VIP HYD range and the top end Retract™ folding series.

Stern Pod Thrusters

Tunnel bow thrusters are highly cost effective and easy to fit on many boat types. When installed at the correct immersion depth and using the shortest tunnel length possible, tunnel thrusters offer an ideal solution for motor boats and even deep-footed sailing yachts when sailing performance is not paramount.
