 Gulfstar Trawler   36   John M.   San Diego, CA   "The system is wonderful. I really like the Yacht Thruster! Alex has been absolutely wonderful in assisting me equip my boat. When I first launched the boat I was in a side tie dock and the wind was blowing like crazy! I was able to hold the boat in position next to the dock and was able to single-handedly tie my lines. The Yacht Thruster has allowed me to operate my boat all by myself." 
 Hanse Christian    43   Bob D.   Toms River, NJ   “The Yacht Thrusters you equipped are excellent! It has just been wonderful! A lot of chatter has started as neighbors have watched from the dock as I bring my boat in by myself.”  
 Hanse   40   David R.   ON Canada   "I like my Yacht Thruster very much. The installation was very pleasurable and the timing was great! The very next week I was able to use it in 17 knot cross winds providing me complete control of my boat! Thank you!" 
 Hanse   43   Herbert S.   Lignano, Italy   “I didn’t want to weaken my boat’s hull due to big holes, which is only possible with eXturn as bow thruster.” 
 Hinckley Sailboat   40   Arja A.   Rhode Island   "I had the privilege of using the bow thruster at the dock on Friday, April 26 after the yacht was launched Friday afternoon. It worked beautifully! I am delighted by the product."  
 Hinckley Talaria   42   Richard R.    Punta Gorda, FL   " I finally got the boat out for a sea trial of the thrusters yesterday and am very pleased. The amount of thrust is most impressive as the stern really moves when you touch the controls. I am a believer." 
 Hunter 42   42   Rich P.   Sydney BC, Canada   "Just a quick line to let you know that the Yacht Thruster is working quite well, making docking and leaving the dock much easier. Kathie loves it. I'd like to thank you and your team again for the excellent workmanship. I'd recommend to anyone who is interested in the Thruster." 
 Hunter Sailboat   46   Mike N.   Florida   "I am a huge fan of this little device - incredible boat control!" 
 Hunter   31   Jean V.   Colorado   "Just re-launched the boat and the thruster works great and thank you for your patience and assistance in helping me complete my installation!" 
 Hunter   36'   Grandpappy Resort   Texas   "Works like a champ!"  
 Hunter   36   George W.   Washington State   "We were able to install it in one long day plus an hour or so the next day. We are very pleased with the thruster, one of our best investments" 
 Hunter   38'   Rusty Elsner   Annapolis, Maryland   "6+ Years & still working great! Absolutely love it!" 
 Hunter   38   Jerry W.   Traverse City, MI   “It works very well. The installation was very simple. Every experience I have had since we have installed the Yacht Thruster has been great. It has given me full control of my boat.” 
 Hunter   41   Bob Hansen   Annapolis, Maryland   "Best investment I've made! It's turned me into a pro!" 
 Hunter   41   Francisco A.   Florida   "Thruster works better than expected. Should have installed one a long time ago." 
 Hunter   41   Francois F.   Florida   "Just a little word after going through the installation and using your thruster. Installation went fine, and the thruster is working beautifully. Frankly, changed our life docking; I find myself going places I would never dared before! And with ease, confidence, and grace." 
 Hunter   41   Max M.   Miami Beach, Fl   "The installation is complete and I have used it a couple of times now. It was completely worth the money and I'm very happy with it."  
 Hunter   42   George S.   Ontario, Canada   "Awesome product. Awesome customer service. Works as good as advertised or better. Kind of nice to be able to back the boat perfectly using the thruster with the wheel centred, and while docking single handed. Great to be in a confined channel with wind and/or current, waiting for a bridge opening, and being in full fine control. Remote control definitely recommended. For tying up single handed with an off shore wind you just hop off the boat with the stern line, tie it up, letting the bow go where it wants (who cares?) and stand there, remote in one hand and a drink in the other, and then leisurely bring the bow back to the dock using the remote. Another way is to back up to the dock and loop the dock cleat. Stroll up to the bow with the remote and bring the bow in. Loop the bow line on the forward dock cleat and you’re done without even hopping onto the dock." 
 Hunter   42   Richard & Sandra B.   Maryland   "Before we bough the Exturn we deliberated over it for a long time. Both cost and configuration were considered plus ease of installation, power and noise.   After using it a few times now and especially today, I would not be with out it.  We went in to get fuel and water and the wind was blowing us on to the bulkhead. A nice easy landing was achieved with just a touch on the thruster but when we left........  BLISS.   Backing out was so easy with complete control with the Exturn.  Just a little nudge every few feet kept the bow off while the stern slid gracefully away from the dock.  We looked so cool and so professional." 
 Hunter   42   Whitney D.    Baltimore, MD   “We splashed the boat last week and tested the thruster. All went well. We used it to turn 180 after being splashed, did a few 360s in the harbor, practiced docking along a pier, and then docked easily in our slip. Very nice. Smooth, powerful, and quiet operation. Surprisingly low power draw as well. Since then we have departed and docked three times. The thruster makes dockings in narrow marinas so much less stressful. We thought about the thruster for more than a year, but are so glad to now have it. We haven't noticed any impact on performance, and won't have a boat without a thruster ever again." 
 Hunter   45   George G.   Toronto, Canada   "The stern thruster very closely matches the tunnel bow thruster in my Hunter 45ds sailboat and works like a charm, moving my boat directly off the dock, even in stiff winds. It's absolutely brilliant!!! - When I come in to dock now, I can push the boat against the dock and my wife can easily step off the boat and casually tie off the lines, while I hold the boat in place, again, even in stiff winds. - Docking is a breeze and the thruster can easily cover up for any surprises, winds, or getting us into the tightest of slips. - Yacht Thruster significantly takes the risk out of my aging crew jumping off the boat at just the right moment with the lines. I fully expect that Yacht Thruster will significantly extend the age to which we can continue to enjoy sailing.” 
 Hunter   46   Captain Steve   CT   "It was great meeting you at the boat show and thank you for the additional information. I had installed my Yacht Thruster 300 myself in 2011 and it has worked flawlessly ever since. It's on my Hunter 46 sailboat with plenty of power. I even have the remote control unit. On occasions, if alone, I can come into a dock and step off with a stern line and secure it. Then use the remote to bring the bow into the dock. Quite the concept! Just having the daily confidence is great. I can even rotate in a tight circle. Certainly provides great control coming into a slip but it has also been a great help when anchoring or picking up a mooring in windy conditions." 
 Hunter   46   Mike N.   St. Petersburg, FL   "We just completed the 200 mile sail from Marathon to St. Petersburg yesterday. I had numerous opportunities to employ the Bow Thruster in very narrow waterways and marinas. It worked as promised and flawlessly! I am incredibly impressed with the power and control embodied in this compact engine. I would be happy to provide a very positive recommendation to any prospective buyers." 
 Hunter   -   The Dunhams   -   We absolutely love it. Worth the investment, even on a smaller boat like the Thank you for all your help.  
 Irwin Sailboat   43'   John W   Maryland   Installation went well and the thruster has made the boat enjoyable. Plenty of power, and reasonably quiet. Batteries and controls fit just fine under the V-berth.  
 Island Packet   38   John C.   Miami Beach, FL.   "Thruster went on the boat incredibly easy and the performance is far better than expected. Boat speed was no affected in any way and in fact may have increased the speed of the boat slightly." 
 Jeanneau   32   Beat V.   Neuenburger Lake, Switzerland   "eXturn is a big enrichment and provides me with a lot of delight. It gives me safety and makes every port maneuver really easy." 
 Jeanneau   409   John B.   Oriental North Carolina   "Thruster works like a charm and turns the boat on a dime."  
 Jeanneau   49   Carey S.   California   “ I installed the Bow Yacht Thruster myself. It was an easy install and when I had any questions I called Alex and he answered the questions on the spot. I have used it entering and leaving our slip with no problems at all. The noise level is so low you don't even know that you are using the thruster.” The newly installed (400 Duplex) Yacht Thruster is still working flawlessly. I used it last week in 22 knots keeping my bow into the wind while releasing a stern and aft mooring line at Catalina Island. It helped!" 
 Jeanneau   49   Sal M.    Wilton, CT   “ I installed the Bow Yacht Thruster myself. It was an easy install and when I had any questions I called Alex and he answered the questions on the spot. I have used it entering and leaving our slip with no problems at all. The noise level is so low you don't even know that you are using the thruster.” 
 Jeanneau   50'   Jim P.   Washtington State   "My thruster is working just fine. (It was installed October 2013) It always works when I push the button, and has enough power to swing the boat. I back in to my slip so that I can easily step off the swim step onto the dock, and without the thruster, the four bladed prop’s walk is stronger than the rudder’s steerage at docking speed, but the thruster does just what’s expected of it and allows me to back in exactly where I want to go."  
 Jeanneau   50   James P.   Tacoma, WA   “It works well. I have had reliable use of it. The installation was completed with no issues.” 
 Jefferson    57'   Phil & Mary L.    Clearwater, FL   "Hey Tony, ...The addition of the stern thrusters on the Jefferson 57 made a big difference in us handling her. Since we are older (76 & 67 now) and handled the vessel ourselves, the additional stern thruster gave us the added maneuverability to put the 65' LOA vessel anywhere. Also, we would highly recommend the Yacht Controller for a large vessel, particularly if it's a couple with no additional crew. Mary L, USCG Master Phil L." 
 LM   27   Horst Z.   Sneek, Holland   “Although the long keeler requires the shaping of a socket out of plastic the mounting went smoothly and straightforward.. For me eXturn is a big increase of comfort and security.“ 
 Mainship   34   Dave R.   Cape May NJ.   " Thruster was recently installed and works wonderfully! We are doing a trip down the intracoastal waterway in a few months and I wouldn't consider doing this trip without this thruster.” 
 Mapleleaf   48'   Tom B.   henderson, NV   "It's a big boat. The thruster sure was needed. It works great!"  
 MasterCraft   24   Rick R.   Utah   Thruster works great for docking, close quarter maneuvering and picking up riders! 
 Morgan Sailboat   38   Roger S.    Ohio   "All of my expectations have been exceeded. The bow thruster is a tremendous maneuvering aid and I wonder why I didn't do it sooner. A traditional tube thruster was not an option due to space constraints and would have required the removal of my forward 45 gallon water tank." 
 Morgan   43   Larry G.   Cincinnati, OH   "I boat in the Annapolis area. The thruster has worked very well. I find it very easy to back out of my slip now. My boat sits east to west and if winds blowing from the south it pushes me in the wrong direction in my slip and the thruster now helps me handle this situation allowing me to back out of my slip with a lot of confidence. It allows me to turn very sharply. You installer did a great job. I highly recommend the system! My wife appreciates Yacht Thruster!“  
 Nordhavn   46   Leo M.   -   The stern thruster works perfect on the Nordhavn 46. I was able to put it to good use this last weekend and dock the boat in very tight spaces. More than peace of mind, the level of confidence while approaching a tight docking area is great! Well worth the money spent!  
 Nordic Tug   37   Barry S.    Nashua, NH   "The installation went very smooth. We used the stern thruster over the weekend and it made a tremendous difference not only maneuvering away from the dock, but on a couple of tight turns!" 
 Ocean Sport Roamer    20   Chong Lee   Skyline Marine Center   We wanted you to know how much we appreciated Vianca’s knowledge, attention to detail and communication with us as we went through the process of getting the boat work done. We can’t say enough good things about her work and how easy she was to work with. Now that it’s all done, we are thrilled with the boat and hope to convince our friends to do the same. 
 Overseas   57   Peter R.   Seattle, WA   "I'm very pleased with the ease of installation, overall quality and our technical support received by Yacht Thruster. The thruster really works great! Our slip runs north / south and the wind often blows us away from the finger. The Yacht Thruster allows me to pull in with no drama!" 
 Pacific Trawler   38'   Ralph M.    Ann Arbor, MI   "As you may recall, I recently purchased the 300 Compact stern thruster, with dual joystick controls. I am very satisfied with its performance on my 38' PT trawler!" 
 Pearson Ketch 42   424   Rick D.   Virginia   "We cruised for two weeks in early September stopping in such places as Solomons, Cambridge, Knapps Narrows, Annapolis and many in between. We had many opportunities to enjoy having our bow thruster. In our own slip, it has made docking in a cross blow or cross current easier. Again, thanks for your assistance and patience." 
 Pearson   36   Pierre S.   St-Lambert, Qc, Canada   "J'ai terminé l'installation du Joystick et ai commence a utiliser le propulseur. Par un vent de 15 noeuds nous avons pu effectuer un tournant de 180 degrés dans un espace d'environ 50 pieds alors que la longueur hors tout de notre voilier est d'environ 40 pieds! De plus la sortie est la rentrée au quai est grandement facilitée, pour ne pas dire changée complètement. C'est avec plaisir que nous constatons l'efficacité du propulseur. Nous avons a pratiquer, mais le stress de quitter et de revenir a notre emplacement est d'autant plus réduit: la confiance s'installe et je vous ferai part de nos expériences futures." 
 Prestige   50'    JM R.   New York, N.Y   " I love my Yacht Thruster equipped on my ips pod driven boat! I actually use my thruster instead of the pod rotation when docking in close quarters as it allows for more precise control when docking. Thank you for all the support!" 
 Pursuit   31   Brad O.   BC Canada   "I did the thruster install for my client and they are very happy. He is an older gentleman who has to maneuver into a tight spot to dock. He just trims his outboard and goes in with the thruster! Works beautifully!" 
 Roberts Trawler   40   Justin A.   Seattle, WA   “We successfully installed the thruster this past week, thank you again for all your help. I have to admit we were a little skeptical about the performance of such a small unit but boy does she work well! One push of that joystick and it sure shut up all the nay Sayers around the club :).” 
 Sea Horse   40   Mary R.    Seattle, WA   "Hello, I purchased your 230C model at the Seattle Boat Show and I absolutely love it! It was installed by a professional boat yard. I replaced a 24 V stern thruster with the 230C, so I already had the batteries, battery charger, etc."
