High Speed Thrusters

Hydromaster’s high-speed thrusters combine a pulling type propeller with an optimised underwater body shape based on suitable NACA profiles for minimum drag on vessels operating in speeds up to 28-30 knots.

The 360-degree steerability adds to the manoeuvrability of the vessel, erasing the need to install rudders and might save on adding mooring thrusters in the bow.

Higher propulsion efficiency vis-a-vis jet propulsion allows for less installed power to reach similar vessel speeds.

Available as Z-Drive for engine driven craft or L-Drive with weight saving Permanent Magnet motors. Unit is suitable to be installed in aluminium, carbon fibre and hulls made of other materials.
