Combining the cost effective simplicity of DC electrics with the high performance characteristics of retractable units, the electric retractable thruster range is ideally suited to modern sailing yachts and super fast motor yachts.
Retracting down to reach ideal immersion depth, all retractable units offer exceptional power efficiency. Furthermore, when retracted in the up position these units leave clean smooth hull lines thus not affecting the yacht’s performance.
Installed further forward (or aft) in the hull than is possible for tunnel thrusters, retractable thrusters offer a better turning moment on the yacht thus producing greater manoeuvrability.
Max power offers two different types of electric retractable thrusters:
The low profile Compact Retract available in both 12V and 24V and the vertically retracting VIP 150 Electric, catering for yachts from 30’ to 60’.
