          Why You May Need an Ignition Protected Bow Thruster

          • It is not safe to install a conventional electric bow thruster in the engine room, or compartment containing fuel tanks, of a gasoline powered boat because gasoline fumes may be ignited by internal sparking in the thruster's motor. To allow safe installation under these conditions, VETUS has developed ignition protected bow thrusters which include sealed motor housings meeting the ISO 8846 Marine "ignition protection" standard
          • Model BOW5512I - 12V DC / Model BOW5524I - 24V DC

          Note: imperial dimensions are approximate, the manufacturer built this product to metric specs.
