Many boat customers choose to upgrade to more powerful versions to be sure that the thrusters work well for them in all situations. However, very powerful single speed thrusters can, in light weather conditions, be a bit difficult to use as they push the boat too fast. The solution is to fit the new Side-Power DC Power Controller which enables proportional speed control of a DC electric thruster. By also controlling the thruster’s power, you get even more precise handling of the boat in all conditions.
The Side-Power DC electric variable speed thrusters series (SEP) was honoured with the 2011 Innovation Award by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and Boating Writers International (BWI).
