These auxiliary propulsion units with optimized hydrodynamic efficiency lead to significantly increased maneuverability for traditional shaftline equipped commercial and large pleasure craft vessels. Special versions of this thruster system are available, for example a solution where the thruster is mounted in a rubber sealing. This reduces structure borne noise significantly and makes it possible to remove the thruster from the vessel for maintenance work without dry docking.
