Bow thruster brushless 30 kgf, 12V in 110mm tunnel with extended run time.
Revolution: The BOW PRO thrusters are fitted with proven induction technology. This system makes the use of carbon brushes obsolete. As a result, the bow thruster is very quiet and has unlimited* runtime! The induction motor is controlled by the VETUS MCV motor controller. This in-house-engineered motor controller can handle both 12 V and 24 V, making the new bow thruster suitable for almost all boats!
Evolution: The BOW PRO thruster is controlled by a proprietary CANBUS protocol. There are two different panels available for this thruster; one fully-proportional basic panel and one fully-proportional panel with lock-function. This allows the boat to be moored without the use of ropes. Letting passengers board your vessel have never been this easy! Evolution is to continue on a set of good properties, so there are similarities with its predecessors: remained are the very silent propeller blades and the streamlined tailpiece. Retrofitting a BOW PRO thruster therefore is a piece of cake as the new motor is interchangeable with the tailpiece and flange of our thruster range.
