The bow and stern thrusters have become standard equipment. VT Naiad Marine has been manufacturing on its excellent reputation in producing the world’s number one stabilizers systems and has developed a full range of thrusters relying upon its several years experience. Quality engineering, through careful tests and a long history in hydraulic and electrical applications, makes VT Naiad Marine thrusters a powerful force in the marketplace. All products are supported by a worldwide service and spares network.
Initially designed for the demanding commercial market, VT Naiad Marine Right Angle Thrusters are also available for yacht applications. They can suit both electric and hydraulic applications (50-60 Hz).
The Right Angle Thruster Systems inboard shafting design allows drive flexibility with either a hydraulic motor or AC electric motor drive package. Right Angle Power Thrusters are available in six sizes with tunnel materials to match any hull. VT Naiad Marine tunnels with pre-mounted saddle are available classification society approved.
Available in five sizes and seven power levels, the in-line thruster is an extraordinarily compact unit with high output relative to its tunnel diameter. A unique feature of this design is the highly skewed 7 blade propeller offering maximum thrust and extremely quiet operation. The thruster housing, propeller and shafting are precision manufactured in AISI 316 Stainless Steel for the highest in marine corrosion resistance. The thruster housing contains the hydraulic motor allowing easier installation.
In-line thrusters are CNC manufactured in-house and tested under load on our unique hydraulic dynamometer. More importantly, NAIAD in-line thrusters have been proven in thousands of demanding applications around the world.
