Vetus’ revolutionary BOW PRO thruster range now seamlessly integrates with Yamaha’s Helm Master EX boat control system, giving boaties and fishers unparalleled, pinpoint control over their boat at all times.
Using just Helm Master’s single intuitive joystick skippers can simply “point” where and in what direction they want their vessel to go and the BOW PRO will combine with the engines to ensure it goes directly there.
This is not only a huge advantage when docking or close-quarter manoeuvring (especially in higher winds) but also a massive bonus for fishers, especially those targeting deeper waters. Using the Helm Master’s Fishpoint, Driftpoint and Staypoint features the skipper can use their BOW PRO/Helm Master combination to effortlessly maintain both their boat’s position and its heading, without straining either the engines or the thruster.
Combining Vetus’ proportional control BOW PRO with Helm Master EX also increases a boat’s steering efficiency, reducing fuel consumption and, thanks to Vetus’ proprietary motor controller regulating the maintenance-free brushless induction motors, are very quiet.
The only true continuously rated proportional thruster on the market, BOW PRO’s runtime is limited only by the vessel’s battery capacity.
Grant Matthews from Vetus’ New Zealand distributors Lusty & Blundell, says, as specialists in tailoring batteries and battery management systems to individual boats, L&B also has the perfect solution for anyone wanting an even longer runtime.
“We are very experienced in creating systems for those wanting prolonged fishing sessions in challenging conditions,” he says. “We can provide the ideal combination of lithium & AGM batteries, onboard charging solutions, smart DC-DC chargers and off-water charging solutions, both plug-in or solar.”
Vetus BOW PRO thrusters are now available through Lusty and Blundell’s showrooms in Albany, on Auckland’s North Shore; Whangarei and Tauranga.
