Bow Thrusters for Vessels from 38 to 200+ Feet
28 Models, hydraulic and electric double thrust
counter rotating and single prop systems for pleasure boat and commercial
applications, from 5 to 350 horsepower.
Tested for power, prop size and pitch, clearance
and configuration up to 15 hp in WESMAR's one-of-a-kind world-class
Designed and built of top quality materials to withstand
rugged ocean conditions.
Tested by skilled technical specialists using advanced
computerized and automated equipment. For examples of actual customers

VORTEX Single Prop Thrusters
For boats that cannot accommodate
the tube size of the double thrust, WESMAR's single prop thrusters
offer an affordable option. The new Vortex single prop thrusters
are easily upgradeable from a single prop thruster to the more powerful
counter rotating dual propeller system without removing the thruster
from the tunnel.
VORTEX Dual Prop Thrusters
For all sized vessels -- pleasure
and commercial. The dual prop, counter rotation design produces
a rugged and reliable bow thruster that produces about 40% more
thrust with the same input horsepower.

Bow Thruster Systems for workboats.
Powerful, efficient and reliable!
The VORTEX 200 System
Is extremely powerful, designed
for commercial craft and large pleasure boats. Sleek, efficient,
heavy duty system uses 24 or 26-inch props. This design allows for
more effective placement of this smaller tunnel lower in the water
and further forward, providing better pivotal performance and reducing
cavitation and noise.
The VORTEX 350
It is one of 8 systems for commercial
vessels. This steel encased system uses 40-inch diameter, four blade
Kaplan style props and provides power capable of precise movement
of commercial vessels. This and the VORTEX 200 series are designed
for vessels requiring between 200 and 350 horsepower.
Larger VORTEX Systems
WESMAR's innovative Double Thrust
bow thrusters provide a conservative 40% more thrust than conventional
single-prop designs with the same tube, prop size, GPM and PSI.
When water passes through a spinning prop two types of energy are
created: axial and swirl. WESMAR's VORTEX systems convert swirl
energy into axial energy. The result is greater efficiency and more
