Electric Tunnel thruster

DC Electric Tunnel Thrusters

The Sleipner SE series are the base for most of Sleipner’s extensive range of DC electric thrusters.

They are fitted in a tunnel through the bow, or into stern tunnels to use as stern thrusters.

The electric motors, solenoids, patented IPC safety system and the mechanical parts of the propulsion system are all purpose built, utilizing the extensive experience gained through years of leadership in the global thruster market.

Ignition Protected Tunnel Thruster

Ignition Protected Tunnel Thrusters

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 petrol powered 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.

Retractable Thruster

Retractable Thrusters

Retractable thrusters for use in boats with shallow or flat bottomed hulls, or as an alternative to tunnel openings in the hull

Designed in true Sleipner spirit with reliability and durability as main factors, they are exceptionally sturdy and compact with the same high performance as all other Sleipner thrusters.

Unique advantages by use of the latest technology including 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

SX External Thruster

SX External Thrusters

The best solution for boats with twin stern drives

With a conventional stern thruster installation the waterflow from the thruster can hit the drives and severely reduce the thrust effect.

Sleipner offers a complete externally mounted unit with a tunnel and hydrodynamic cowls that divert the water past the drives. 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.

EX External Thruster

EX External Thrusters

Externally mounted pod thrusters

The EX series can be installed in most types of boats between 6 and 15 meters independently of hull form, hull material, propulsion and depth.

These pod thrusters are an excellent choice where a tunnel thruster cannot be fitted, or as an extremely compact stern thruster. As they are easy to fit and they are especially good for retrofits.

Pro Series Thruster

Pro Series Thrusters

PRO models with DC Speed Control

The PRO series are standard thrusters with the addition of the PRO Proportional system.

Providing even more accurate control by fully regulating the power of the thruster as well as providing even longer run times, these are the latest in DC electric thrusters. The noise reduction and automatic ”Hold” function are further benefits provided by the PRO series along with integration with most third party joystick control systems.

AC Electric Tunnel Thruster

AC Electric Tunnel Thrusters

Standard range designed for 230V / 400V.

The SAC series is manufactured taking advantage of experiences gained through years of volume production, resulting in a very cost efficient, high quality product. All AC components are selected from brand name manufacturers ensuring the best quality and worldwide support. Standard range is designed for 230V / 400V. Setup for alternative power supply specifications can be delivered on request.

The innovative S-link™ control system ensures fast and troublefree installation, and gives you the unique option to combine hydraulic and AC thrusters in a single control environment. All with variable speed control.

Hydraulic Tunnel Thruster

Hydraulic Tunnel Thrusters

For when extensive thruster usage or long run cycles are required.

For many vessels, a hydraulic system makes economic sense since several functions can run off one central hydraulic source. Once the basic system is in place (pump, reservoir, cooler), adding a function is simply a matter of adding a relatively inexpensive hydraulic valve.

Sleipner's hydraulic systems are designed for ultimate reliability, performance and easy installation. For the installer, perhaps the most important feature of any hydraulic system is that they are delivered ready for installation.

Vector Fins

Vector Fins

Sleipner's Vector Fins are the ultimate sea sickness cure

Stabilizers have one main purpose, to dramatically increase the comfort onboard.

Stabilizer systems have been around for a long time, but were typically only used on larger passenger ships and super yachts. The dramatically increased comfort and usability of any boat, have made owners of also smaller leisure vessels wish for this.

Fin stabilizers is the only system that effectively handles both cruising and “at anchor” use, with the “at anchor” stabilization force deciding the size of the fins

Electric Vector Fins™

3rd gen Vector Fins™ are more efficient underway & at anchor. Improved fuel efficiency compared to flat fins.

Elimination of roll. At anchor, Vector Fins™ typically double the stabilizing force per kW input, consuming much less energy to achieve the same stabilizing forces as flat fins, being more efficient, and a more sustainable choice.

Compared to flat fin stabilizers, the patented curved Vector Fins™ create lift while cruising, reducing the drag of the boat's hull, resulting in less fuel consumption & better top speed.

Quiet operation. Electric actuator isolates the moving, mechanical high-torque gears and motor from the boat reducing about 92% of structural born noise.

Easy retrofit. Easier installation with flange and bolt-lock.

eVision Thrusters

eVision is the new e-series of thrusters featuring the first electric motor engineered exclusively for marine thruster use.

Compact and lightweight electric motor. The thrusters are up to 50% lighter and have a smaller motor that rivals the most cutting-edge engines used in the automotive industry today.

Industry-leading runtime. The eVision series has a state-of-the-art 6-phase PMSM synchronous motor, delivering performance and runtime never seen before in a DC thruster.

Easy retrofit and upgrade. Designed for flexible scalability, existing Sleipner thruster models can easily be upgraded to the new E-series motor directly or with a simple adapter plate.
