This high-efficient propulsion system offers excellent maneuverability, onboard comfort, fuel efficiency, and low emissions.


Steerable pods provide superior slow-speed maneuverability and excellent high-speed handling. The joystick makes docking easy and safe, even in confined spaces. Outstanding maneuverability also leads to efficient driver response and high safety.


This perfectly matched package provides outstanding performance and excellent maneuverability. By working in undisturbed water, the forward-facing propellers enhance the already high performance.
