Bow Thrusters

Steel Bow Thrusters

We offer a comprehensive range of aluminium and steel bow thrusters to suit all types of vessel.

Primarily designed for commercial displacement vessels our steel Bow Thrusters have also been successfully fitted to planing craft and inland waterways pleasure craft.

Long service life and ease of maintenance have been key factors in design and development.

Models KT30-KT170 have the hydraulic motor fitted in the drive housing directly coupled to the propeller shaft which runs in taper roller bearings housed in the nose cone assembly. These are pre fitted and tested prior to delivery.

Models KT200-KT300 have a lower gearbox within the tunnel with the hydraulic motor plugged into the input housing inside the vessel. These larger units can also have diesel drive via a cardan shaft and right-angle gearbox. A range of ratios is available to suit engine rating.

All models can be supplied to suit a range of system operating pressures and can be
integrated with either closed loop or open loop hydraulic systems.
