A bow thruster is an electrically or hydraulically driven laterally operating propeller, which enables the bow of a boat to move sideways. By simply operating the controls, the bow of the vessel will move to either port or starboard. In a similar manner, the stern of the boat can also be controlled, by installation of a VETUS stern thruster. It goes without saying that a VETUS bow and/or stern thruster will considerably enhance the maneuverability of a boat in marinas and locks, particularly when there are strong winds and currents!
