Lewmar 110TT bow thruster has just been announced Kiwi Yachting www.kiwiyachting.co.nz
Lewmar 110TT bow thruster is a very light, compact unit, using a composite hub and saddle. Due to the position of the thruster on the boat, weight is a critical consideration and at 8Kg (17.6lb) the 110TT is over 30% lighter than its closest rival. In addition, a small overall height enables the 110TT thruster to be fitted further forward in order to maximise its leverage.
Powered by a 1.5kW motor with long runtimes, the unit has a rated thrust of 28kgf (62lb) with a typical duty cycle of 7 minutes. The use of high strength composite material has been extended wherever possible to minimise both weight and the need for complicated maintenance. The unit is supplied with a simple plug ‘n’ Play connection to the joystick and comes complete with a Joystick, 10m cable, fuse and fuse holder.
The 110TT Thruster is in full production with stock available via Lewmar's worldwide network of distributors.
