Wesmar's New DC Thruster Design

Wednesday, January 07, 2009

Wesmar's two-bolt design was created for an easy drop-in installation. The new stainless steel bow and stern thrusters can also fit on competitive two-bolt metric systems. Also simplifying the installation process, Wesmar has developed a new stern tunnel for a more efficient upgrade. The key features of Wesmar's DC thrusters are:
Fully proportional control
No thermal shutdown
Easy Drop-in replacement for competitive units
Heavy duty stainless steel propellers
Rugged and long lasting thrusters not subject to electrolysis corrosion

In addition to its retrofitable design, Wesmar is escalating the horse power of their bow and stern thrusters with a dramatic new design that increases power from eight to 13 horse power. Now, thanks to the new high tech design, boat owners and captains alike can achieve more thrust through the same sized tunnel. Unlike other brands, esmar's DC thrusters offer maximum power for vessels without the worry of early thermal shut down.

Providing more reassurance when maneuvering a boat, Wesmar thrusters are crucial for all vessels, especially in critical situations. The DC motors can be controlled proportionally, allowing for the application of only the necessary thrust for any circumstance such as docking in a crowded waterway, or increasing thrust when conditions dictate. Wesmar’s bow and stern thrusters support the needs of yachts 34 ft and above.
