New thrusters on show from VETUS
VETUS is introducing several new products at this year’s METSTRADE, including the larger models of its BOW PRO Boosted Thruster plus the STERN PRO thruster and BOW18024D.
The company will also show its latest water strainers, waterlocks, portlights, ventilation hatches and re-designed roller blind/fly screen.
The BOW PRO Boosted Thruster models BOWB180 and BOWB210 incorporate features from the BOW PRO series.
There is also a third connection on the motor which leads the current to an internal charger, stepping up the voltage from 12V to 24V.
VETUS will also highlight its kit to convert a BOW PRO to a STERN PRO thruster. Available in tunnel diameters from 125mm to 400mm, the kit is installed as the thruster motor with electric components fitted internally to the transom of the boat. The tunnel and propeller are installed externally on the transom.
The new BOW18024D is a bow thruster providing 180kgf on a 24V power supply. An evolution of the C version, the thruster has the latest features such as temperature sensor and low noise six-blade propeller.
The FTR330..M is a family of heavy-duty water strainers suitable for fast semi-planing andplaning boats. The strainers feature filter housing made from NAVIDURIN and 19, 25, 32 or 38mm hose connections.
The 15-litre NLP3..15L series of waterlocks achieve a sound reduction of 10dB over traditional waterlocks. The waterlock’s inlet chamber can be rotated 360°.
Further new products include the ultra-slim PL Series portlights, suitable for panel thickness of 2mm to 20mm, and the PPL2 ergonomic, hinged window and portlight knobs.
