The Vetus Bow 125 Electric Bow Thruster improves lateral maneuverability of boats with sideways thrust power of 276 pound-force (lbf)/ 125 kgf. Install thrusters below the waterline in the bow of the hull for advanced maneuverability in tight spaces. When traditional line handling is not a possibility, such as a short-handed crew, thrusters provide immeasurable peace of mind during stressful maneuvering around the dock.
Vetus bow thrusters feature a streamlined bronze tail piece and composite propeller designed for quiet, effective thrust.
Models available with or without ignition protected motors in 12V or 24V. Ignition protected models include a sealed casing that encloses the motor from explosive gases and encapsulates areas where open sparks are a possibility.

An ignition-protected bow thruster is important if the electric bow thruster will be installed in a compartment containing fuel tanks or in an engine room where gasoline fumes are present. A conventional thruster's motor could ignite the fumes.
Vetus developed the DI model thrusters with sealed motor housings that meet the ISO 8846 Marine ignition protection standard. For help in selecting the correct bow thruster for installation on your boat, call and speak to your knowledgeable Jamestown Distributors customer service representatives at 800-423-0030.
