There are situations where a boater could use a little help, for example, when he just sails completely on his own, or just with inexperienced people on board.

Bow and stern thrusters have become an important device when moving at low speed. It makes manoeuvring easier, safer and quicker. The propeller, which is made of maintenance free synthetic material, can run in two directions, thus producing a jet flow to port or starboard. Each propeller is designed to achieve maximum thrust in a small tunnel diameter. This makes manoeuvring in tight spots against a strong current or a shifty wind much easier.
Craftsman Marine specifies the average force of the thrusters, however the starting peak force (1 second) can be easily 60% higher.

We cannot predict the cost to ship hazardous materials outside of UK. If your purchase includes a gas inflating lifejacket we can send it overseas only by first removing the gas bottle.

We cannot send other hazardous goods including liferafts, paint and antifouling overseas without first getting a special delivery quotation. After all these hurdles we put up, please do not be alarmed - if you need a liferaft delivered to the Baltic, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, simply contact us for a quote. You can be confident our delivered price will still be better than local sourcing.
