Product of the month October 2020: the BOW PRO


Revolutional concept matched with proven technology

Our BOW PRO thruster use proven induction brushless motors. As a result, the bow / stern
thruster motor is maintenance-free and has longer runtimes! Just the tailpiece and the
power circuits need regular maintenance. The induction motor is controlled by the VETUS
MCV motor controller. The built-in over-temp and low battery protection, combined with
the brushless induction motor make the BOW PRO thruster series highly resistant to abuse
and ideal for the most demanding boater in the most difficult manoeuvring situations!
The BOW PRO thruster is controlled by proprietary CANBUS protocol VCAN (digital control).

There are three fully-proportional panels available for the BOW PRO thruster series; one
basic panel (BPPPA) and one panel with lock-and-hold function for easy docking (BPPJA).
The last panel is a joystick which controls the bow and stern thruster simultanously

BOW PRO thrusters utilize the same propellers and gearboxes proven in VETUS thrusters
for over 30 years. Upgrading a boat with an existing thruster to a BOW PRO thruster
is easily accommodated as the BOW PRO thruster was made to share tunnel sizes with
current VETUS thrusters as well as many other brands. For the latest update on our thruster range, please contact your VETUS dealer or check our website.
