Performance Manoeuvring with perfect control.
For highly controlled manoeuvring in restricted situations Lewmar's TT ELECTRIC Thrusters represent a move forward in design and function. Easy installation and maintenance free operation are benefits that will attract both builders and owners. A comprehensive program of testing has proved that the new Lewmar Thrusters deliver efficient, balanced and supremely quiet performance.
A full range of hydraulic thrusters from 185 to 300 are available with all the benefits of the standard range TT thrusters. The compact hydraulic thrusters offer significant weight saving and extend motor running time. Hydraulic versions need to be run from an external power source.
IP Thrusters are certified for use in Ignition Protected areas designed for gas boats.
Ideal for wet areas such as Stern installations.
Covers can be supplied as a kit. This would only be offered as a 'waterproof' solution as the installation is the customer's responsibility.
Manoeuvring larger vessels in today's busy harbours and marinas can challenge even a skilled crew. Crosswinds and tides can be difficult to overcome with conventional propulsion and steering gear, particularly when stern to mooring, which is becoming a more common practice around the world. Lewmar Thrusters can help provide additional control just when you need it at the touch of a button, or move of a joystick. Lewmar has a range of well-proven thrusters that suit sail or power vessels up to 150ft. Many of our custom Thrusters are available with Bronze or Aluminium legs. Contact Lewmar for details.
Vertical Retracting Thruster
Lewmar has continued development of its Custom Thruster range started in 1983 with the introduction of the VRTT series. The VRTT utilises the advances gained with the successful TT range, to give the most rugged and powerful range of retracting thrusters.
Swing Retracting Hydraulic Thrusters
Swing retracting thrusters are ideal for higher performance sailing yachts, and fast planing or semi-displacement hulls. With the thruster in a raised position it offers a completely fair hull section causing minimum drag.
