“Wichtig ist die perfekte Installation”
BOW – – Stern JT-50 SINGLE Required Kgf at 6 bft. : 48.1
F. Ziegler: Amel Super Maramu 53
Ich versprach Ihnen eine kurze Memo über meine Erfahrungen mit dem Jetthruster.Das Gerät ist sehr hilfreich in engen Marinas und beim Anlegen an Bojen in Ankerbuchten, das jetzt sehr gut mit einer Rückwärtsfahrt zur Boje und Befestigen von der Achternbadeleiter aus erfolgt.Auch beim Längsseitsanlegen an einer Pier oder Tankstelle hat sich der Jetthruster bestens bewährt. Mit Bug-und Heckstrahlruder erfolgt jetzt eine 360° -Drehung auf der Stelle in 24 sec.
Wichtig ist die perfekte Installation. Sie wurde durchgeführt von der Kremik Service Sem Zuric in Primosten. Besonders ein Detail erscheint mir wichtig zu erwähnen:Die zwei sehr starken zusätzlichen Batterien werden vom 24 Volt-Bordnetz ständig mit aufgeladen. Sobald jedoch der Thruster eingeschaltet ist, werden die Batterien automatisch vom Bordnetz getrennt, sodaß eine unkontrollierte Entladung des Bordnetzes auf keinen Fall erfolgt. Nach Abschalten des Thrusters schalten sich die Batterien automatisch wieder auf das Bordnetz.
“The thruster really helped when docking the boat in tight situations”
BOW JT-70 SINGLE STERN JT-50 SINLGE Required Kgf at 6 bft. : 48.1
P. Mackay, Canada: Bavaria 39
“The installation of the JT-70 combi-thruster system on our Bavaria 39 has really helped when docking the boat in tight situations. The bow swings quietly and effortlessly, even against a strong cross current and wind. The stern thruster is very helpful in countering the effect of prop walk when backing into a narrow berth. Used together, it is possible to move the boat laterally to or from a dock when there is limited space at the bow or stern. All in all a great system to keep you out of trouble!”
“Specially for yachtsmen; you can’t hear it”

Caio de Graaf: Dehler 47 and Nordson
Not a user, but a ‘hands-on’ expert, that’s what Caio de Graaf is. He owns Yagra Jachtservice (Yagra Yacht Service) in Hellevoetsluis, the Netherlands. “For a client of ours we have installed a Jet Thruster JT-90 in the bow of a Dehler 47, as part of a complete restoration. It was a special job, because we installed both the pump and the valves in a waterproof spot in the cabin. I tried the system myself and its works fine. The owner was pleased as well, but was happy about one thing in particular: “You can’t hear it.” For yachtsmen, especially, this is very important; a bow thruster makes a gravelly sound.
For another client we have installed a JT-30 in the bow of a 1948 Nordson boat. It is 9 metres long and only 1.5 metres wide. He sails in the canals of The Hague and Delft, and the length and the limited rudder pressure made it impossible for him to make the turns. This system, installed in the bow, just like the motor, solved his problem. The great thing about the Jet Thruster? Seeing and experiencing it means buying it.”
“We think it is ideal”

John Doesburg: – Lemsteraak
John Doesburg is the proud owner of a steel 1996 Lemsteraak, 10.5 metres in length. It is a round-bottom with a cabin and a continuous, 15-metre skeleton. That last one has a light keel operation, but for the true sails, leeboards are used. John has had Jachtwerf Van Rijnsoever Deil install a Jet Thruster JT-50 in the bow. “The installation of a propeller or Jet Thruster is still a little taboo in the world of flatboat and round-bottom boat owners. Even so, my wife and I decided to have it installed, because mooring and manoeuvring is so much easier with a Jet Thruster.
A propeller required a large hole to be drilled into the skeleton; the JT-50 did not. Along with the noiseless performance we considered it sufficient reason to go with the Jet Thruster. We think it is ideal to be able to correct and manoeuvre like this; by using the Jet Thruster and propeller in conjunction we can even rotate around the axis.”
“We supply the Jet Thruster as an ex works option”
BOW & STERN JT-50 COMBI Required Kgf at 6 bft. : 50.4
The sloops of Jan van Gent from Aalsmeer, the Netherlands: almost everyone knows these fine vessels. They are quality sloops to relax in, but, thanks to their powerful motor, they are also suitable for sailing 45 kph. Owner Bart Heemskerk: “We make high demands for our products and the /components were use. When you order one of our sloops, you always get a very complete package at no additional cost. We supply the Jet Thruster JT-50 Dual as an ex works option. We recommend the Dual, since, in view of the necessary investment and compared to the surplus costs, it is better to install the system in the bow and stern both. At this moment 25 per cent of the 10.35 Jan van Gent sloops ordered are equipped with the Jet Thruster system. Installing it in a sloop which has seen previous use is theoretically among the possibilities, but in such a case the installation costs are relatively high. The performance is fine, but you do need a JT-50. This is also to do with the deep trim of the heel. Quite a bit of water needs to be moved there. The Dual ensures that the system is optimally suited for the Jan van Gent. Our clients tell us they are happy with the system’s silent operation, because it guarantees that when mooring at an outdoor café you don’t draw too much attention with your bow thruster, which invariably makes the sound of a coffee grinder.”
