VetusMaxwell said the new thruster features brushless design and can handle 12- and 24-volt motors.

VetusMaxwell Inc. introduced the BOW Pro Thruster, which the manufacturer said has virtually unlimited run time, at the Metstrade show in Amsterdam last month.

“We’re proud to introduce the BOW Pro Thruster, which combines the proven innovations of our renowned electric bow thruster series and whisper-quiet RIMDrive,” VetusMaxwell vice president of sales and marketing Chris DeBoy said in a statement. “By providing ease of maneuverability to our customers through solutions like this, we aim to make boating simpler and more enjoyable.”

The Netherlands-based company said the new thruster features brushless design and can handle 12- and 24-volt motors. It has proportional control and protected ignition and is suitable for retrofitting. It is as much as 93 percent efficient, the company said.

VetusMaxwell said some new motors will fit directly onto the original tailpiece.
