Se Series - Side-Power's Leading Brand
The first Side-Power thruster was developed in 1985 and today's tunnel thrusters are a result of almost 30 years of development. As the main Sleipner product, it has been continually developed and improved over three decades. Today, Side-Power is widely recognized as the world leader in our segment. An overwhelming number of the worlds leading boat builders choose Side-Power for their fine vessels.
Side-Power has always been at the forefront of thruster innovation and today's Side-Power thrusters has a series of patented safety solutions. The SE series have been installed in tens of thousands of boats around the world for almost three decades. We dare claim it's very hard to find a more sturdy and proven thruster construction.
PRO Series Our tunnel thrusters can be installed as bow and/or stern thrusters and are delivered in both a standard and a PRO version. The PRO version is equipped with a DC speed control, which gives you full proportional control of the thruster. If you plan to install both bow and stern thrusters, the system offers the unique Hold-function which pins the boat to the pier while docking.
IP - Ignition Protected
To provide reliable and safe thruster installations in more boats, we offer modified versions of our DC electric thrusters in watertight housings for use in stern and other locations that may get wet or exposed to petrol (gasoline) fumes. These thrusters are fully ignition protected (ISO 8846) for use in boats with petrol (gasoline) engines. They have a hermetically sealed composite housing around all electric parts. This provides the ignition protection as no petroleum fumes can enter and be ignited by sparks. The other advantage is that the electric parts that might be damaged by water are also covered and protected, making these thrusters the ideal choice for other stern thruster installations where it is difficult to ensure that the thruster will always remain dry.
