Swing Thrusters

Swing Thrusters

thruster-product-series-sS Series swing thrusters benefit from the same in-hub technology as our T Series thrusters, whilst allowing the thruster to fully retract leaving a fair hull with minimal drag. This compact design uses a lead screw lift assembly with a reduction gear box to ensure that the thruster hub when retracted is held firmly in place. Once retracted a small hydraulic locking pin engages ensuring  zero movement during passage.

For added security all S Series thrusters can be manually lifted in case of power failure. To ensure there is no environmental risk all main drive motor and hydraulic hoses are fully enclosed within the upper leg assembly so are not open to sea water. OYS have worked with a number of boat builders to optimise the range and features offered.
