Propeller 6 blade, diameter 178mm, shaft 12.2mm, for 45/50/80 kgf bow thrusters pre 1998. Set includes all mounting hardware for propeller. Zinc sold separately.
Working in close collaboration with the Maritime Institute Netherlands (MARIN), the world-famous hydrodynamic laboratory, VETUS has optimised the performance of its thrusters. This has been achieved by utilising a unique propeller blade profile, which creates little or no cavitation.
As cavitation produces unwanted noise, this new blade design offers a major reduction in the operating sound levels for VETUS bow thrusters. Moreover, the application of this new propeller has reduced the current consumption by up to 10%.
