In 2018 VETUS introduced the (R)Evolution in bow thruster design: The BOW PRO Thruster: a combination of the renowned electric bow thruster series and the quiet RimDrive.

Revolution

Our BOW PRO thrusters are fitted with proven induction technology. This system makes the use of carbon brushes obsolete. As a result, the bow thruster is very quiet and has indefinite* run-time! The (AC) induction motor is controlled by the VETUS MCV motor controller. This in-house-engineered motor controller can handle both 12V, 24V and AC motors, making the new bow thruster suitable for almost all boats!

Evolution

The BOW PRO thruster is controlled by a proprietary CANBUS protocol. There are two different panels available for this thruster; one fully-proportional basic panel and one fully-proportional panel with lock-function. This allows the boat to be moored without the use of ropes. Letting passengers board your vessel have never been this easy! Evolution is to continue on a set of good properties, so there are similarities with its predecessors: remained are the very silent propeller blades and the streamlined tailpiece. Retrofitting a BOW PRO thruster, therefore, is a piece of cake as the new motor is interchangeable with the tailpiece and flange of our thruster range.

This BOW thruster provides 180 kgf on a 24 V power supply. This thruster is an evolution of the C version and features the newest innovations like temperature sensor and a low noise 6 blade propeller. Run-time is dramatically improved (up to 4 minutes!). With a similar flange to other models in the range, the motor can be rotated in increments of 90° for easy accessibility. The BOW18024D has the same low-noise propeller blades and a streamlined tail piece as it's siblings.

Highlights:

  • 180kgf from a 250 mm tunnel
  • Easy to install
  • Single propeller for a homogeneous flow in the thruster tunnel
  • Strong, lightweight and corrosion resistant synthetic propeller
  • Flexible coupling between tailpiece and motor reduces vibrations
  • Meets EMC requirements
