Revolutional concept matched with proven technology
Our BOW PRO thrusters use proven induction motors without carbon brushes. As a result, the bow/stern thruster motor is maintenance-free and has Endurance Rated* run-time! 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 resistent to abuse and ideal for the most demanding boater in the most difficult maneuvering situations!

The BOW PRO thruster is controlled by proprietary CANBUS protocol (digital control). There are two 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). 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 boats with electric propulsion, VETUS offers the 48 V series pictured right. The BOW PRO range continues to expand. New models with higher outputs for 12, 24 and 48 Volt power supplies will be available soon.


  • Precision proportional control
  • Endurance Rated Run-time - Limited by the size of your battery bank.
  • Maintenance-free brushless motor
  • Built-in over-temp and low battery protection
  • Highly resistent to abuse
  • The thruster(s) and their control panels are connected by cables carrying digital V-CAN signals (VETUS canbus type allowing future integration into boat-wide electronic systems and information displays
  • Electronic switching eliminates mechanical solenoids for improved reliability

    VETUS strongly advices the use of original V-CAN connection cables to ensure an optimal connection between controls and truster.
