The World’s First Retractable Bow Thruster – For a Houseboat!
View House Boat Thrusters
With their shallow draft and significant windage, houseboats can be extremely difficult to handle around a dock or slipway on the best of days. With the introduction of the HB series of retractable thrusters, Sideshift has set the standard for a powerful, easy-to-install bow thruster for houseboats up to 70′. Installed easily in a few hours as a DIY project, or by any marina or boatyard, the powerful dual prop thruster sits at home under the bow in our rugged, marine grade anodized aluminum housing, ready for use when you need it!
