Italian marine outfits Saim SpA and Quick SpA have agreed to leverage technologies on the production of a new line of bow and stern thrusters.
The thruster line, dubbed QS Seamaster, are available in a multitude of options — both DC and AC brushless models, driven by hydraulic or electric power. Installation can be tunnel-style, and retractable versions are also part of the comprehensive model line.
The product range has models with power ranging from 40 to 1,100 kg force for vessels up to 150 feet.
The full model line and specifications can be seen here. A full range of control panels will be available as well.
“The decision of producing a Saim-branded range of thrusters developed quite rapidly, the agreement was signed just as quickly. We immediately joined our experience together… [because] Saim specifications easily integrated Quick advanced technology,” said Saim CEO Marco Donà in a statement. “We are sure QS Seamaster range will be able to satisfy a number of requirements and contribute to boost business on the marine market. Our knowledge and expertise in the marine market and our sales and after-sales network outline the high profile of this entrepreneurial venture.”
Quick — which is known for its line of gyrostabilizers as well as anchoring systems and a range of components (in addition to a series of thrusters) — is thrilled to enter into a partnership for a 100 percent, made-in-Italy product, said Michele Marzucco, president of Quick Spa.
“We are honored to be significantly involved in this important project we enthusiastically accepted and … are fully aware this partnership can strength the prestige of made-in-Italy all over the world,” said Marzucco. “We can count upon a 30-year tradition in the production of marine accessories and are very proud to cooperate with a company of excellence in Italy as Saim is, while providing our know-how and technological support.”
