As marinas get more crowded and slips become tighter, docking a boat safely
is more challenging than ever before. Thrusters give you total control of
your boat and allow you to maneuver into and out of tight spots with ease
and actual control of your boat. Thrusters also have the benefit over “pod”
systems with single joystick that they only need to apply a reasonable amount
of power in the actual direction you wish to move the boat, instead of having
to use perhaps as much as ten times this power through vectoring several
thrust sources to achieve a net power in the desired direction, thereby avoiding the annoying wash for all the boats around you.
Confidence in all conditions
Boating is meant to be fun. Why end your day or week on the water with a
stressful experience? A Side-Power thruster offers the help you need to be
in full control when docking and departing regardless of wind conditions and
currents. And you can do this with full confidence, you do not need to rely
on a computer to understand what you mean to do and then re-apply this
into other commands to several propulsion sources. Using thrusters means
you control exactly what is going to happen.
Even simpler shorthanded boating
With the new DC Speed control thrusters, the unique “Hold” function takes
shorthanded boating to a new level. See page 8 for more information

Thruster sizing
By definition, any thruster will to some extent do a job in any boat. The key is to ensure that the chosen thruster
will do the job you want it to in your boat. This is one of two main factors deciding the right thruster size for
each boat.

Today most pleasure craft over 35’ have a bow thruster as standard
equipment which normally will meet the ­expectations of most customers when using the boat under normal w
­ eather conditions. The
sizes used by the boat builders will vary depending on the boat’s
intended usage and price level. In today’s production boats, the typical thruster will push the boat’s bow against a ­direct side wind of
21-23 knots.
Some custom built or very high end boats may have a high power
bow thruster that pushes the bow against a direct ­side wind of 2426 knots. For boat owners that use their boats in more demanding c­ onditions or have, for example, a strong current in their local
marina, or for other reasons require very high performance, many
boat builders offer upgrades to a more powerful ­thruster system.
While most pleasure crafts will have ample power in most conditions
when the t­hruster can push the bow against a direct side wind of
25-27 knots, this year’s addition of the “DC Speed Control” system
will allow for even more powerful DC electric thrusters to be used
comfortably.
Charts
The charts shown here are general guidelines and your dealer will
be able to give more detailed advice on the thruster size to use for
your boat.
Example
If you have a 45’/13.5m boat, you have 4 thrusters to choose from
within “normal” sizing.
If your boat does not have a lot of wind area and you use it mostly in
good weather conditions, you can choose the least powerful thruster, the SE80 in a 185mm tunnel.
If you want to keep the ø185mm tunnel dia, but require more power,
the SE100 is a good choice.
If you have room for a larger tunnel diameter, there are models in
both ø215mm and ø250mm tunnels that are suitable for this boat
size, so there are many options.

Please note that generally, a larger tunnel diameter will be more energy efficient and generate less noise.

A complete thruster system
There are several components in a complete system for your boat; besides the thrusters and tunnels (bow or stern or both) – you will
need control cables, main switches – automatic or manual – fuse & fuse- holder, control panel(s) and main power cables, even a radio
remote is a normal part of a thruster system today. To simplify installation and further increase the safety, we recommend to use the
original Side-Power Automatic Main switch which also has a built in fuse reducing the number of necessary components. Where the
Automatic Main switch is used, you need a 5 lead control cable between the panel and main switch, while only a 4 lead is needed to
the thruster or if a manual or other auxiliary main switch and separate fuse is used.
The powerful electric motors used on the thrusters require a good electric power supply for safe operation and to achieve the desired
power. Thereby, both the main power cable sizes as well as the available battery capacity is important. It is the actual delivered voltage
at the thruster when it is running, after the voltage drop both in the batteries as well as through the cables, main switch and fuse, that
decides the actual power of the electric motor and thereby the possible thrust. So, getting this right will be important for your product satisfaction. It is also important to remember that different types of batteries have different capabilities and specialties, and what is
important for thrusters is the cranking capacity, the batteries ability to deliver a high current for a shorter period of time. On www.
side-power.com you will find a guide called “system builder” – that will guide you through what parts to order as well as recommend
cable sizes and battery capacities for your chosen thruster(s).
The Side-Power “System builder” will help plan the installation in your boat.

DC electric thruster models
To enable the most safe and easy installation as well as the best possible performance for a variety of boats and
usages, Side-Power thrusters are offered in several versions to satisfy all requirements.
SE series – Standard bow and stern thrusters
The standard bow and stern thruster series are the base for all our extensive range of
DC electric thrusters. They are fitted in a tunnel through the bow, or into our stern
tunnels to use as a stern thrusters. The electric motors, solenoids, patented IPC control
system and the mechanical parts of the propulsion system are all totally custom designed
and built, utilizing the extensive experience gained through years of leadership in the
global thruster market.
IP versions – For demanding environments
The IP – ignition protected – versions are equipped with a hermetically sealed cover
around the motor and switch gear. This means that it is safe to use in gasoline boats or
other areas where there is a risk of explosive fumes as well as excellent for installation
in wet areas (not for submerged installation). Can be used for both bow or stern applications. Most models in both the SE and SEP series are available in IP versions. More
information page 10.
SR series – Retractable thrusters
Our retractable thrusters are excellent for use as bow or stern thrusters in boats with
shallow or flat bottomed hulls, or where a tunnel opening in the hull at all is not desirable. Designed in true Side-Power spirit with reliability and durability as main factors,
they are exceptionally sturdy and compact with the same high performance as all other
Side-Power thrusters. Unique advantages by use of the latest technology including our
S-link intelligent bus control provides a further benefit in use and control for the operator. Available also as speed control versions with the designation SRP. More information
on page 11.
SX versions – Externally fitted stern thrusters.
The fully external stern thrusters. Very popular for boats with twin stern drives together
with the special cowls directing the water flow past the drives or in boats that have
limited internal space in the back of the boat. Exceptionally easy installation is a bonus
with the SX stern thrusters. Two size models are available now, the 80 and 100 kg thrust
models and you can get both SE and SEP series in SX versions. More details on page 12.
SEP series – The speed controlled thrusters
The SEP series are basically SE thrusters with the addition of the DC Powercontrol system. Providing even more accurate control by fully regulating the power of the thruster
as well as providing even longer run times, this is the latest in DC electric thrusters. The
noise reduction and automatic ”Hold” function are further benefits provided by the SEP
series. More details on page 14.

Ignition protected - IP series
For several years, Side-Power has manufactured ignition protected thruster models. Now, the second generation is here with added features and
many more models.
High safety standards
To provide reliable and safe thruster installations in more boats, we
offer modified versions of our DC electric thrusters in watertight housings for use in
stern and other locations that may get wet or be exposed to petrol fumes. These
thrusters are fully ignition protected (ISO 8846) for use in boats with petrol engines.
They have a hermetically sealed composite housing around all electric parts. This provides the ignition protection as no petrol fumes can enter and be ignited by sparks.
The other advantage is that the electric parts that could be damaged by water are also
covered and protected, making these thrusters the ideal choice for other stern thruster
installations where it is difficult to ensure that the thruster will always remain dry.

Available as SEP-IP versions with DC Speed Control.
External sternthruster - the SX series
Finally a functional stern thruster option for boats with twin stern drives!
Side-Power now offers a complete external sternthuster assembly, specially designed for installation on boats with
twin stern drives. It utilizes special cowls to enable good performance by diverting the waterflow past the stern
drive legs, which normally blocks the v and the thrust.
The units come pre-assembled, wired and sealed in the waterproof box, and only require a small hole into the boat’s transom to attach
the power and control cables. The cable connection points are fully sealed, so that it is Ignition Protected and can be installed in petrol
powered boats.
This stern thruster option can also be the best choice for boats without stern drives, if the inside configuration of the boat’s stern makes a
standard thruster installation impractical.
Available with two different size thrusters, SX80 and SX100. Also available in SXP versions with DC speed control.

Retractables - the SR/SRV series
Retractable thrusters
Some boats do not have the possibility to fit a tunnel
thruster and thereby require a retractable thruster.
Side-Power have designed a product range that address
known weaknesses in retractable thrusters, namely
the sturdiness, reliability and speed of the in-water
propulsion parts to offer retractable thrusters in true
Side-Power spirit with no compromise on safety and
reliability.
The retracting thrusters are generally built with the same high
safety standards as all Side-Power products, and incorporate the
important benefits introduced with the SE-series thrusters. Our
focus on safety is a totally integral part of the product design so
that everything from build quality to ease of installation is thought
of to ensure long term reliability.
There are two versions of the retractable thrusters, one model
design for direct mold-in, and one designed to be mounted on a
flange. The flange can be a mold-in base from Side-Power, or the
boat builders can manufacture their own base in materials suited
for their hulls or as part of their basic hull design.

Flange mounted version
The flange mounted models have thruster unit in a casing that will be bolted to a base. This allows for easier installation in hulls made from different materials, as well
as in series production where you do not need to mix
laminating and engineering type jobs.
The 185mm tunnel diameter thrusters uses one fast and powerful
actuator, while the 250mm tunnel diameter models have two actuators to handle the increased forces with the same exceptionally
fast deploy/ retract operation time.
The unique design of the underwater mechanism with only a few,
but very sturdy parts that all contribute to the stability of the
moving assembly. The unit is also designed to keep the thruster as
compact as possible while enabling the safe use of heavier motors
on the more powerful units. The vertical installation of the motors
also reduce the impact forces on the assembly in extreme waves
compared to motors fitted at an angle.

DC Speed Control
Ultimate
docking!
With many boat customers now having
had several boats with thrusters, their
functional demand of their thruster system has increased so that many choose to
upgrade to more powerful thrusters than
standard and even request hydraulic thruster systems to ensure that run-time limitations in DC electric thrusters will not be a
problem. However, very powerful single
speed thrusters can, in light weather conditions, be a bit difficult to use as they push
the boat too fast, and with the focus on
living space in modern boats, often there
just is no room for a hydraulic system.
The solution is to fit the new Side-Power
DC Speed Controller which enables proportional speed control of a DC electric
thruster. By also controlling the thruster’s
power, you get even more precise handling
of the boat in all conditions. By also using
an upgraded thruster size, you will about
never need full power, which means that
the usable run time is extended a lot, at
around 50% load you can expect close to
continuous usage being possible, normally
then limited to battery power.
greatly simplified troubleshooting for most
issues ever seen with thrusters as it shows
both actual voltage on the thruster as well
as current draw.
The extended runtime
The Proportional
is put to good use in the Hold-function
incorporated in the new panels. With
a single press of a button, the bow and
stern thrusters will keep you alongside the
docks. The amount of thrust applied can
be adjusted, and in addition the bow and
stern thruster can be individually synchronized to get a balanced sideways motion
- making single handed docking very easy
indeed!
Joystick Control Panels features a Back-lit
LCD display giving instant feedback to the
user. System status, amount of thrust & direction of thrust as well as remaining run
time and battery capacity will be shown
in real time on the display. Important user
warnings and alarms will be given to the
user both on screen and via audible signals.
The DC Speed Control system is controlled by S-link and monitors important
parameters such as temperature in both
controller and thruster as well as thruster
voltage – this monitoring will also enable
Even more functionality by adding a Side-Power radio remote!
When a Side-Power radio remote is added to the system you get even more benefits from the speed
control system. If you are docking alone - having the PJC panel automatically pushing the boat against
the dock while you go put the mooring lines on, you might wish to increase the thrust on the bow
thruster momentarily to make it really tight. Pressing the bow thruster button on the remote will then
let you do this. You can also shut down the hold function without going to a fixed control panel by
selecting to run any of the thrusters in opposite direction of what the hold function is doing.
www.side-power.com
System features
A DC Speed Control system contains three main elements - proportional control panels, a
power control unit and a DC electric thruster - all tied together with the new S-link control
system. The thrusters used in a speed control system is almost identical to the familiar SE
range of DC thrusters, the only difference being the addition of a temperature sensor and a
new electronic control box. All mechanical and main electric parts are from the well proven
thruster range produced by Side-Power for many years. All 12 & 24 volt DC electric thrusters produced by Side-Power can be enabled for DC Speed Control by authorized Side-Power
service personnel, even the oldest models.

“Easy does it with variable-speed thrusters”
“...Until now the luxury of adjusting how much thrust you use to manoevre a big boat in or out of a tight spot
has been the preserve of expensive and bulky hydraulic thruster systems. Sleipner’s new 12/24V system is a much
more cost effective set-up and considerably more compact than a hydraulic system. It should also help resolve the
issue of not being able to use an electronic thruster for long periods of time without overheating, because you‘ll
rarely be using it on full power all the time...”
“...Using conventional DC thrusters, offering full power or nothing, we would have had to apply numerous bursts to
keep it rotating. With the variable-speed system we were able to use a smaller amount of continous thrust. Not only was
this more intuitive, but it made for a quieter, more relaxed manoeuvre. The more power you want, the more you push the
twin paddle switches...”
“...This means that like a hydraulic system it also has a hold function, enabling you to set and leave the level of thrust. It’s a feature that shorthanded skippers often rely on to pin their boats against the dock while they step off to secure the lines...”
“...The other big bonus is a remote control that allows you to operate both thrusters from wherever you chose, so you can take up station on
the side deck and walk the boat in while keeping an eye on he gap...”

Depending on the boat’s construction, there might be several
different ways to route the S-link backbone. Find the most
practical way to implement the backbone and remember that
the S-link equipment do not need to be connected in a specific
order.

Side-Power FEATURES
• Noise reductions of up to 75% measured in controlled
environments
• The expected and tested normal noise reduction in
“average installations” 20-40%
• Upgrade kits are available for most “SP” series thrusters with special adaptors
• Provides delay between drive directions
• Monitors solenoid functions to reduce the chance of
solenoid lock-in
• Will stop the thruster in case of a locked-in solenoid,
without extra user action and even without controlling
a main switch.
The thruster gear leg is filled with oil from a remote reservoir
located above the waterline. This generates overpressure,
making an effective seal against water intrusion in the gear leg.
• Separate oil reservoir placed above the waterline.
• Allows easy access for oil changes
• Having the advantage to be able to change oil in units used
commercially, with hundreds of running hours per year.
Sealed gear leg with long-life “mechanical” seal where highly
polished ceramic and carbon surfaces form the only moving
sealing surfaces, ensuring protection against damaging water
intrusion into the gear leg. Pre-filled with special gear oil for
lifetime lubrication.
• “Mechanical” seals with surfaces of ceramic and carbon
for ultimate security against water intrusion
SINGLE PROPELLER:
A properly engineered s­ingle propeller system will be the
most energy efficient thruster. Its compact design fits easily
into narrow bows making it the perfect match for our smaller
­models. With more than 60.000 single propeller thrusters in
use, the Sidepower single ­series system has proven its reliability.
TWIN PROPELLERS:
The twin ­propeller system can give more thrust than a single
propeller ­system in the same tunnel dia­meter. This is our choice
for our mid-range models where high thrust is required in a
small ­tunnel diameter. Due to the compact design and high
performance, the twin models have become the thrusters of
choice among boat builders around the world.
TWIN COUNTER ROTATING PROPELLERS:
Two counter-rotating propellers can give the most thrust at
a good performance ratio in a minimal tunnel diameter. This
system is used in our larger thrusters for maximum power.
The TC models are the favourite thrusters among leading
boatbuilders for their high-end yachts.

The gearhouse / drive legs of most Side-Power DC Electric
thrusters are now fully galvanically isolated / separated from
the electric motor and motor bracket. This ensures that even
if there is an accidental short circuit or a current leak for other
reasons, the immersed parts are not effected as they could be
with direct electric contact.
To provide reliable and safe thruster installations in more
boats, we offer modified versions of our DC electric thrusters
in watertight housings for use in stern and other locations that
may get wet or be exposed to gasoline fumes. These thrusters
are fully ignition protected (ISO 8846) for use in boats with
gasoline engines. They have a hermetically sealed composite
housing around all electric parts. This provides the ignition
protection as no gasoline fumes can enter and be ignited by
sparks.
The other advantage is that the electric parts that could be
damaged by water are also covered and protected, making
these thrusters the ideal choice for other stern thruster installations where it is difficult to ensure that the thruster will
always remain dry.
S-LINK:
S-link is a ”CAN” based control system with full intelligent
communication between all units in the system, much like a
computer network.
Main advantages include:
- Round, compact and waterproof plugs with unique
keying and color coding to avoid faulty hookup
- Unlimited number of commands or information
transfer on a single cable
- User feedback at panel
- Intelligent troubleshooting.
DC SPEED CONTROL:
A DC Speed Control system contains three main elements proportional control panels, a power control unit and a DC
electric thruster - all tied together with the new S-link control
system. The thrusters used in a speed control system is almost identical to the familiar SE range of DC thrusters, the
only difference being the addition of a temperature sensor
and a new electronic control box. All mechanical and main
electric parts are from the well proven thruster range produced by Side-Power for many years. All 12 & 24 volt DC
electric thrusters produced by Side-Power can be enabled for
DC Speed Control by authorized Side-Power service personnel, even the oldest models.
With the ever growing demand for increased performance, we continue to expand our offering of tunnel diameters to allow customers to choose more powerful thrusters in tunnel sizes that will fit in their boat. The latest addition is the 215mm tunnel, between the existing ø185mm and ø250mm sizes. This size is very important for boat
sizes around the 50’ / 15m mark, where we have seen that boats have become much more voluminous than before,
requiring larger thrusters to achieve the same maneuverability. We will continue to launch new tunnel diameters where
appropriate to let our customers get the performance they want in their boats.
Facts about tunnel sizes:
• Principally a larger tunnel diameter will always be more energy efficient than a smaller tunnel diameter for the same thrust.
The factor is water speed, and this is decided by the amount of water you move through the possible opening which is the
square area of the tunnel less the area blocked by the thrusters gearleg.
• The opening in the boat hull is not only the circular size of the tunnel diameter. Because the hull is angled, you get a much
larger oval opening, and this makes a larger tunnel diameter more difficult to fit properly into the hull.

Radio link for control panels
The radio link eliminates the need for difficult cable runs between control panel(s)
and thruster. Consisting of a transmitter box, that connects to a control panel and a
remote control receiver that plugs into the thruster(s), the receiver accepts up to 4
independent transmitters or hand held radio remotes. The multi-channel system supports two thrusters and can be mixed with hard wired control panels. Full Side-Power
safety level with child-safe activation and intelligent auto-off, even at the receiver.

Serial-parallel switch box
This switch box enables the i­nstallation of 24V thrusters in b
­ oats with a 12V system.
With an additional 12V battery, you s­ upply 24V for the thruster’s ­operation, while
all batteries are charged by your normal 12V ­system when the thruster is not
running. The reliability of this fully automatic system has been proven in h­ undreds
of ­boats over many years.
To install 24V thrusters in 12V boats (necessary extra battery is not included)

S-link Handheld radio remotes
A radio remote control makes your thruster system even more helpful around the docks. Providing full simultaneous control of a bow and a stern
thruster or a bow thruster and a windlass, making shorthanded boating much easier.
Changes in the new model:
• The remote transmitter features visual and audible alarms.
• Warning/alert given when the transmitter have no contact with the receiver
and when the thruster supply voltage is to low.
• Dedicated version for S-link thrusters (8730 interface no longer required).
• New external antenna solution for better reception and easier remote
placement of the antenna (Extension cable available).
• More energy efficient transmitter- uses only one battery,
maintains operating time from earlier model with two batteries.

To upgrade a standard on/off thruster to a speed controlled thruster, you need
a PPC 800 and the internal wiring loom needs to be upgraded with one of the
following kits:
8 1997 - Upgrade kit SR80/100
8 1998 - Upgrade kit SE100/120/210/240
8 1999 - Upgrade kit SE30/40/60/80/130/150/170
Contact your local Side-Power distributor to get the correct upgrade kit for older
Side-Power thrusters.
Due to their sealed construction, IP-models (including SX) must be upgraded by an
authorized Side-Power Distributor!

Safety:
S2 = 3 min. or appr. 7-10% within a limited time frame. All electromotors are protected against overheating.
Electronic time-lapse device protects against sudden change of drive direction. Electric thermal cut-off switch in
electromotor protects against over heating (auto reset when electro motor cools down).
Flexible coupling between electro-motor and driveshaft protects electromotor and gearsystem if propeller gets
jammed.
If original Sidepower panel is used, the panel shuts off automatically 6 minutes after last use.
Integrated microprocessor monitors solenoids, reducing wear and risk of solenoid lock-in. Auto-stop of thruster in
case of accidental solenoid lock-in or if run signal is continous for more than 3 minutes.

SIDE-POWER
Larger thruster models and extended run time make hydraulic or AC electric thrusters
the ideal choice for commercial crafts and other less maneuverable yachts. In conjunction with a good hydraulic system these thrusters o
­ ffer continuous operation and you
can get variable speed control with proportional control and valves. The last generation
hydraulic and AC electric thruster systems features the S-link control system with two
way communication, opening for a whole new range of features.
With models from 100 to 1400kg of thrust for use as ­either bow or stern thrusters,
Side-Power has suitable models for a wide variety of yachts and commercial v­ essels. To
ensure matching quality of all components in a hydraulic thruster system, we also offer
complete h­ ydraulic systems with guaranteed performance and reliability.

There is a limit to the power you can practically generate with DC electrical systems, so for super yachts and other larger, heavier vessels DC
thrusters are rarely an option.

Thrusters - Stabilizers - Steering
Hydraulic thruster systems
For many vessels, a hydraulic system offers an economic advantage because of the
possibility to run several systems onboard from a c­ entra­lized hydraulic power source. This
will save cost on the individual components so that the complete ­package ends up with
a more favorable cost compared to running all items with individual DC electric motors.
Equipment that is often ­powered by a centralized hydraulic system i­n­cludes windlasses, stabilizers, winches, cranes, furling systems and lifting mechanisms etc.
There are many different ways of designing ­hydraulic systems, and some solutions are
better for specific applications than others. Side-Power hydraulic systems are designed
to provide outstanding performance and flexibility to efficiently support any on-board
hydraulic equipment that is sensible to power from a centralized hydraulic system.
AC electric thruster systems
The new thrusters in the SH and the SAC range are part of a total yacht control system. All of
the Side-Power systems communicate on a shared CAN-Bus based S-Link system.
The S-Link system enables the best integration possible no matter what the combination of
equipment. AC Thrusters can be combined with hydraulic stabilizers. An AC bow thruster can
be used with a hydraulic stern thruster and, in fact, any combination of Side-Power equipment
imaginable can be used.
Stabilizer systems
• Increased comfort on board
- More use of the boat as you can go out in more weather conditions
- Less wear and tear of the boat as you do not have to always head into or away from larger waves to avoid people onboard becoming seasick by the
uncomfortable rolling motion
• Less overall fuel consumption
- While adding fins (or other types) basically will increasing the fuel consumption a little at the same speed, our claim is that the overall fuel consumption will be reduced
- You can take the direct route to where you wish to go even in rough conditions
- You can go at a lower speed with the waves from the side while still being
comfortable (modern cruisers have less roll at higher speeds, thereby people often drive them hard to avoid the rolling)
Steering systems
In addition to traditional hydraulic steering systems and electro-hydraulic power steering systems, Side-Power has also developed a Superyacht-specific steering system. While designing
this, we have been able to draw from almost 100 years of experience with steering systems,
and from our extensive knowledge on hydraulic systems.
The Side-Power Superyacht Steering is a RINA-classed system which fills all demands to a
commercial grade steering system.
The Superyacht steering control system is a “fly-by-wire” system based around the same Slink bus as the Thruster and Stabilizer systems - the difference is that in the Steering System
everything is made with dual configurations, to meet the required redundancy level. This
dual configuration extends to the mechanical and hydraulic side of the system as well.
The Superyacht Steering can be operated from a traditional helm or by joystick and the
system is ready for autopilot interfacing.
