 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. “ 
 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.” 
 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.” 
 CSY   44   Douglas P.    Wilmington, NC   “Loving the Bow 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."  
 Grand Banks   46'   Charles B.   Washington State   "We completed the installation in February (2014) and the unit was tested as needed on our recent trip to Ketchikan, Alaska. I would have to say that the unit's performance met, and even exceeded my expectations." 
 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" 
 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." 
 Beneteau   39   Leon G.   Valencia, Spain   "At Last it is a pleasure to see how easily it is to drive into our mooring at low speed due the eXturn thruster. The mooring stress is gone." 
 MasterCraft   24   Rick R.   Utah   Thruster works great for docking, close quarter maneuvering and picking up riders! 
 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   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.” 
 Challenger   32   Connie D   Toms River, NJ   “When being “in irons” (sailboat’s direction relative to the wind causes it to lose control) I simply tap on your thruster joystick and it helps me quickly gain control. The Yacht Thruster is also great for tight space docking. “ 
 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.”  
 Hunter   36'   Grandpappy Resort   Texas   "Works like a champ!"  
 Beneteau   47   Steve M.   Texas   "I had an Exturn 300 installed on my Beneteau 473. Works like a charm. " 
 Jeanneau   50   James P.   Tacoma, WA   “It works well. I have had reliable use of it. The installation was completed with no issues.” 
 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   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." 
 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. 
 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.” 
 Endeavour   35   Roger B.   St. Catherine, Ontario CA   “The Yacht Thruster is the best slice thing since sliced bread! My wife and I cruise across Lake Ontario and dock on concrete wall and the Yacht Thruster allows me single-handedly dock myself. This allows me to now enjoy more time on the waters.”  
 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." 
 Galeon   33   Rudi H.   Spittal on the Drau, Austria   “Before that, I never drove into or out of ports when there was strong wind, some of the ports on the Danube are simply too narrow...Now I can! I strongly recommend eXturn as a stern thruster to every boat owner.” 
  Hunter   30   Rob H.    South Haven, MI   "Boat went in the water today. The thruster worked great!! Even better, no leaks! Very happy with your product. Thank you for your help in answering questions." 
 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.“ 
 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. 
 Cruiser   38   Scott.   Seattle, WA   "We have completed the installation successfully and the sea trials were good. I am pleased with the unit so far. There is no apparent change in cruise performance. We were able to test it docking in a 12 Kt. crosswind, and it performed flawlessly, making handling the boat much easier to handle." 
 Grand Banks   42    Dan B.    Seattle, WA   "We took a 2 1/2 months trip on the boat and the thruster worked great! Glad I added it. The self-install took about 24 hours of labor." 
 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 :).” 
 Custom    45'   Vicky and Karl   Seattle, WA   "The bow thruster works even better than our expectations! Woo hoo! Thanks"  
 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!" 
 Bristol   40   Bob H.   Sarasota, Fl   "Everything is working fantastic! It is working just as I expected. I can actually dock the boat myself which is saying allot comparing to my past docking experiences! The whole docking procedure is now a great experience! Getting on and off my boat with Yacht Thruster is a breeze. It is everything and more that I wished for in a thruster! Thank you for the support." 
 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!" 
 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." 
 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! 
 Sea Ranger   52   TLC Marine   San Carlos, Mexico   "It works great and installation was easier than I was expecting!" 
 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." 
 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."  
 Cal   46   David C.   Redondo Beach, CA   "It works fabulously .. My Cal 2-46 is a heavy boat ( 36000 lb) and has a pretty big wind effect at the front. I am on a downwind side tie with onshore breeze pretty consistent. I recently backed into my slip and as the nose started to get away. A simple pulse with the thruster brought her right back to the dock.. Without the thruster I would have needed to leave the slip and start a whole new entry. Just what the Doctor ordered .. I also used it to "pivot" the boat within her own length going into the boat yard and backed into the slip with ease.. "  
 Crownline   25   Goran K.   Rab, Croatia   "The leverage of eXturn is optimal due to the lower and foremost position. That‘s exactly how a thruster has to function!" 
 Bristol   40   Robert H.   Rab, Croatia   "The bow thruster works great and a lot of my fellow sailors are asking about it." 
 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. 
 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." 
 CHB Heritage    42   Steve B   Prince Williams Sound, Alaska   "I self installed my system. It's awesome! I wish I had installed on years ago! it makes boating so much easier! Thank you for providing a great product." 
 Ericson   39   Randy L.    Poulsbo, WA   “We were out over the weekend and had the opportunity to use it several times. I'm impressed, and so were some friends who observed the maneuvering in tight places.” 
 Bavaria   42   Heino E.   Port d’Antratx, Spain   "After three months of nearly daily use, I can tell that the purchase decision for Exturn was absolutely right." 
 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."  
 Jeanneau   409   John B.   Oriental North Carolina   "Thruster works like a charm and turns the boat on a dime."  
 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."
