Sideshift’s family of Stern Thrusters are perfect for boats from 20’ to 60′ in length. They mount easily to the underside of a horizontal surface like a swim platform, or to a vertical surface such as a transom. They are perfectly suited for trawlers, cruisers, sport boats, yachts, houseboats, pontoon boats, catamarans, and more. No expensive tunnel is required.
Mounted externally to the boat, the rearmost location maximizes turning power and responsiveness for easy maneuvering of narrow waterways and tight corners. Back confidently into a berth with the simple touch of the joystick.
Offering an immediate response with its water-cooled motors, the heavy-duty, 8″ aluminum propellers provide quiet and smooth operation. Saltwater proven, the rugged stern thrusters are anode protected to prevent corrosion. They are finished with anti-fouling paint over epoxy primer.
All mounting locations are above the waterline. As a result, the stern thruster can be fitted without the need to take the boat out of the water. Shipped as a complete kit with thruster, controller, hardware and joystick, installation takes around 5-6 hours.
