V-DOCKER Complete Kit for Standard Tunnel Bow & Stern Thrusters

No reviews yet
Part Number:
Bow thruster, stern thruster, single engine and gearbox on a single joystick for one hand manoeuvring and docking
The V-DOCKER works with a single (mechanically controlled) engine and a combination of a bow and stern thruster. Only this combination ensures an optimal use of the generated forces, giving you the power exactly where you need it! Where other systems make use of opposing forces situated at the stern of the boat, the VETUS systems just needs a nudge of the thruster to tip the bow in the right direction.

Because of the precise cooperation between thrusters and engine, drifting will be a thing of the past. Unlike expensive systems that claim to work without thrusters, the V-DOCKER system evenly distributes the forces between the front and rear of the boat. Manoeuvring your boat in a tight spot has never been easier

This sail-by-wire system replaces your mechanically controlled throttle lever, enabling single-handed boat control! It works with both inboard and outboard engines and is available in two different kits: one kit for those with regular bow thrusters, one kit for the those with retractable thrusters. When there are no thrusters present, these have to be purchased with the kit as well.

Unique features
  • Unrivalled ease of installation
  • Competitively priced compared to other alternatives on the market
  • Pressure-sensitive joystick for precise operating
  • Works with one engine, and a combination of bow and stern thruster
  • Multiple helm stations are easily connected
  • Suitable for retrofit
  • The perfect match with:
    - VETUS thrusters
    - VETUS extended runtime thrusters
    - VETUS retractable thrusters

    When purchasing a V-DOCKER kit, please base your selection on the type and number of thrusters installed. Both kits can be extended to suit your needs, for example if more joysticks are desired. This kit needs to be complemented with BPCABC CAN cables, with the actual length depending on the size of the vessel. We strongly advise to use these cables only.
