The complete propulsion unit
The navigator is a reliable and compact propulsion unit suitable for use on a very wide range of vessels. In principle, the navigator (deck unit) is a large-scale mobile outboard motor which, in combination with the thruster, makes the vessel 360 degrees manoeuvrable.

Lifting system
The unit is available with a fixed thruster arrangement as well as a sliding one. This makes it possible to adjust the height of the thruster by approximately 750 mm. This prevents air suction when the ship is empty. In many cases, ballasting is no longer necessary.

Easy installation
Installation is quick and easy, because the navigator is equipped with mounting strips that only have to be welded to the deck of the vessel by the shipyard. So it is quite easy to motorise different types of floating objects such as pontoons, split barges, etc. yourself.


  • Compact unit
  • Applicable on almost every type of vessel
