If you want to improve your boat’s maneuverability around the docks, but don’t like the prospect of cutting a huge hole in the bow, check out the Sideshift series of thrusters. Sideshift thrusters mount on the exterior of a V-shaped bow, reducing labor costs and allowing for installation while the boat is in the water. All mounting holes are above the waterline. The SS350 is designed for boats up to 50 feet.
Meeting the needs of boaters in the U.S. has some builders around the world scratching their heads, but not Rio Yachts. This Italian builder knows what works and what doesn’t, and adds a creative touch and fine finish to differentiate its product from lots of other boats out there.
