“Selbst bei starkem Seitenwind lässt sich das Boot sehr gut manövrieren”

BOW – –  Stern  JT-50 SINGLE Required Kgf at 6 bft. : 50.4


Wir haben das JT50 – System in unserer PINASSE 46 als Heckstrahlruder eingebaut und sind von den Eigenschaften und der Zuverlässigkeit überzeugt. Im Heckbereich bietet die PINASSE nicht viel Platz unter der Wasserlinie – das System war daher die ideale Lösung. Der Eigner ist sehr zufrieden mit der Leistungsfähigkeit, selbst bei starkem Seitenwind lässt sich das Boot sehr gut manövrieren.

“No additional resistance; prevents greater fuel consumption”

Bert de Jonge: Greenline 33 Hybrid

“The Greenline 33 Hybrid was designed for optimal sailing efficiency,” says Bert de Jonge. “The light weight and the small rudder make it possible to sail fast, with little resistance. It is no more than logical the vessel will be blown about when sailing slowly. We already had a bow thruster in the front, but for sailing backwards, in particular, I wanted something more. That is why I had Karyvo install a JT-50 in the stern. The Jet Thruster can be used for just that little extra push. By using both systems at once I can even manoeuvre it in just such a way to park the boat sideways. The silent operation of the Jet Thruster truly makes people look up and ask themselves how I’m doing it. I will honestly say the system costs a pretty buck, but what you get is quality, and trouble-free operation. So despite the investment I don’t regret buying it. Rather, if it were up to me, I would have another one installed. An important reason for me to opt for the Jet Thruster instead of a propeller system, especially taking into account the vessel’s design, was not to create any additional resistance. Not just for the retention of speed, but also to prevent greater fuel consumption.”

Now it is so great to sail on our boat without stress!!

BOW JT-50 SINGLE  STERN – –  Required Kgf at 6 bft. : 48.1

V. Panetta

I am going to try to explain  in a few words how great it is to have a Jet Thruster.
We live in the South of France, a place known for being windy and especially thanks to its famous wind named “Mistral” which can get very strong in a very short time. We own a sailing boat a “Harmony 38 Feet” and sometimes going out or in the harbor was quite stressful especially when we sailed alone or in couple.

So we looked forward to finding out a bow propeller. We did not want to modify the structure of the boat and we were very keen on keeping the same sailing speed.
We surfed the net, went to different nautical exhibitions for several months but we did not find the product we looked for. And one day we found out the Holland Marine Parts site.
We phoned the firm directly because such a bow propeller was unknown in France. During this call, we were said that the firm was going to exhibit the Jet Thruster at the Nautical Exhibition in Dusseldorf Germany January 2012. So we went to Germany where we met the commercial team but also the engineer who explained us how to set up the system and how it works.
When we came back in France, we found  a nautical professional and we gave to him the instructions to install the Jet Thruster JT- 50. About the structure we only had to set up 3 nozzles. That was not complicated and meant no structural modification.
Setting up the system was not at all complicated so the professional was able to work properly, quickly and efficiently.
Now it is so great to sail on our boat without stress!!

“The efficiency is even better than expected and the customer is quite happy with this solution”

BOW- –   STERN JT-90 SINGLE  – –  Required Kgf at 6 bft. : 90

The customer during the building of his boat decided too late to order one stern thruster for his Adagio 40 Sundeck and there were no way add a standard one then we thought at the Jet thruster. It is always complicate to install afterward such kind of equipment but because you can easily split the parts, the installation of this Jet thruster was quite easy. We fit the main pump in the engine room with the water inlet. We pull one big hose through the aft bulkhead on which we fitted the 3 way valve and on each side in the stern the water out lets. The efficiency is even better than expected and the customer is quite happy with this solution. Also one big advantage of this system is the low noise level which was a big surprise and the customer regret now to not getting this installation in the bow as well.

“Personally I really appreciate the noiseless operation of the Jet Thruster”

Frederik: Jet Thruster in Bow and Stern
I believe that the Jet Thruster brings another dimension of boating! The boating people of today is demanding a comfortable stay onboard and when maneuvering the boat. The boats are getting bigger and the marinas and guest harbors are becoming more crowded which requires more skilled skippers to avoid incidents.

Personally I really appreciate the noiseless operation of the Jet Thruster, especially when making my way into a narrow guest harbor late at night when the other boat owners are socializing in their cockpits and don´t want to be disturbed by the awful noise a traditional bow thruster makes. Another situation where I really appreciate my combi Jet Thruster is when leaving a pier from where I have been moored long side. Since the swim platform on my boat is extended a consideration always has to be made not to touch the pier when departing, but with my combi Jet Thruster I can push myself parallel out from the pier which really makes life easier…
