 Whitby   42   Mark P.   Canada   " It may be small but it is really effective. We are so pleased." 
 Wellington    48   David and Yvonne H   Pompano Beach, FL   "Just returned from a week sailing the west coast of FL from St. Pete to Naples. The thruster was crucial in a number of marina docking situations. Sanibel Island Marina is very small for a 50 foot sailboat but we got in and out with ease, thanks to our new thruster. Amazing. I have a whole different mindset when entering close quarters now. Much less tension with crew and lines now too. The thruster moves the bow quite well and we are thrilled to have such maneuverability! Thanks for great service and a fabulous product."  
 Well Craft   43'    Frank N.    Lake Erie, Canada    "I love my Yacht Thruster! I had one incident where I was able to pin the boat into a side to dock with 30+ knot winds pushing against the dock! The Yacht Thruster gives me the ability to handle the boat much more effectively in any boating condition. Great power. Amazing product!" 
 Valiant   47   Jay M.   St. Paul, MN   “I love absolutely everything about the thruster from performance to the ease of my own installation. Instead of making a big circle I can now go right into my slip! I wish I had one sooner.” 
 True North    38'   Randy    San Juan Islands, WA   "I send you this email with great joy from the San Juans. After two weeks of regular use I can say that the stern thruster is beyond wonderful! I am damn proud of my install job on the wiring and all works so, so totally great. Even in wind, Yacht Thruster is perfect! Thank you for your sales and excellent follow up after the sale. Again, product works so well and changes the docking game 100 percent! Rock on!" 
 True North   38   Randal K.   Charleston, SC   “Works good, no problem after two years!“ 
 Trojan    44   Bill G.    Amherst, OH   “The thruster is Wonderful, it has made my life better. It’s taken all of the stress out of boating and I can dock my vessel by myself. It has made all the difference in the world.” 
 Tolly Craft   26   Jim D.   Woodinville, WA   “One word… Awesome!... ok, two words… totally awesome. That being said we simply brought the boat back to our marina from the boat yard were we did the installation… I had to back out of the sling… worked great in dealing with our ‘pull-to-port’ single v-drive screw; spun around in bay, WOW!, and headed home. Got to our marina and stopped at fuel dock… two boats there with just enough room at the far end… put the bow on the dock, wife stepped off, secured the bow and toggled stern into dock, WOW… yes, should have done this sooner! That being said, I screwed up putting the boat in the slip… my fault… probably a little over confident with the new toy!!... never said I was a great Captain at the helm!!!, but always created some fun for those watching/witnessing me trying to recover… gotta look on the bright side.” 
 Tiho   36   Leo R.   Zadar, Croatia   “Exturn now was in use the whole charter season is functioning perfectly and has very much enthused our skippering guests. Because Exturn is installed at the foremost position possible, it is very efficient and also really quiet. I really want to recommend Exturn to all wooden boat owners. “ 
 Tiara   36   Jim D.   San Diego, CA   The job is complete. The 300C stern thruster works great on this Tiara 36! The customer reports that the stern thruster seems to be providing more thrust that the stock Lewmar tunnel bow thruster. Honestly, it is very rare to have the stern thruster outrun the bow thruster! I am pleasantly surprise. This result is a check mark in the positive box for sure! Thanks for all the support! 
 Tartan   37   Erich C.   St. Paul, MN   I will save on gel coat repair now because the boat turns on a dime and I love it. 
 Sparkman   47   Paul O.   Auckland, New Zealand   "The thruster is installed and working perfectly!"  
 Silverton    39   Lou G.   Indiana    "P.S. I love the thruster! Thanks!" 
 Silverton   35   Thomas M.   Livingston, NJ   “I am very pleased with the product! I would never buy a boat again without a Yacht Thruster. I now get far more use of my boat. I am 4’ from my neighbor and docking was always difficult. Now with Yacht Thruster I can do it all alone with no worries. I continue to promote your system to boaters! Thank you for getting the job done to my satisfaction.” 
 Shamrock   26   Larry J.   FT. Myers, FL   “I’m very pleased at how good it works!” 
 Sea Ray    42   Sal M.   Connecticut   “We installed the model 300 on the stern of my 42 Searay. Install went well and the unit is working perfectly. Nice to have the extra control when operating” 
 Sea Ray    40   John C.    Bradenton, FL    "The Yacht Thruster works wonderfully! Being able to move the stern of my boat to correct my direction when docking has been a great addition to my boat!" 
 Sea Ray   42'   Richard C.   Quebec, Canada   What I can say about my satisfaction is: 1. It make a very good result. 2. Easy to install but need a bit of imagination but less harder than a regular thruster. 3. It does not make any noise compare to a regular thruster. 4. My wife like to have the joystick on her neck to control the bow and it is very fun. 5. The performance is so good that it is not hard for the battery. Thank you very much, I will recommend to anybody. 
 Sea Ray   29   Bob C.   Lane Grimes, IA   " I'm very happy with how my thruster turned out... it works great. I even used it while standing on the dock using the remote to move the bow around while I adjusted the bow lines... really convenient and again a really great addition to my boat."  
 Sea Ray   29   Gary W.   Eatonton, GA   “The Yacht Thruster works great and very happy how it performs. Thanks again.” 
 Sea Ray   33   Jim P.   Richfield, OH    "We enjoyed our summer and found the Bow thruster to work very well for us, a great addition to the boat." 
 Sea Ray   29   Robert C.   Eatonton, GA   “I’m thrilled with it! Working great! The wireless remote is a great addition as I can walk away from the station when docking to maneuver the boat in position. I am very pleased with Yacht Thruster and will continue to promote it.” 
 Sea Ranger   52   Richard W.   Mexico   "Boat works great, I'm very happy with both the bow and stern thrusters!" 
 Sea Ranger   52   TLC Marine   San Carlos, Mexico   "It works great and installation was easier than I was expecting!" 
 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." 
 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 :).” 
 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!" 
 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!" 
 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." 
 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!" 
 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!" 
 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. 
 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!" 
 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!  
 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!“  
 MasterCraft   24   Rick R.   Utah   Thruster works great for docking, close quarter maneuvering and picking up riders! 
 Mapleleaf   48'   Tom B.   henderson, NV   "It's a big boat. The thruster sure was needed. It works great!"  
 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.” 
 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.“ 
 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." 
 Jeanneau   409   John B.   Oriental North Carolina   "Thruster works like a charm and turns the boat on a dime."  
 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   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   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   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.” 
 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." 
 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.
