Fingertip Power Manuevers Your Boat
Dickson Thruster systems comprise hydraulically powered, stern-mounted propellors that are controlled at the helm. With the flick of a switch the skipper can change direction of the stern by providing port or starboard thrust.
Regardless of boat size, Dickson Thruster has a thruster system that provides more docking control and maneuverability than most motor and sail boaters ever dreamed possible.
Dickson thrusters make frustrations associated with docking movement in tight places a thing of the past ... no more embarrassment, damaged hulls, mangled boarding ladders, and crumpled docks!
Operating a Dickson stern thruster couldn't be easier.
Using a toggle system you maintain confident control of your craft with Dickson thrusters and maneuver like a veteran skipper every time. Troublesome wind and pesky currents don't prevent you from enjoying the boating season.

These Tough & Rugged Thrusters Are Constructed of Quality Materials
A sensible and dependable tool for today's performance-minded captain, a Dickson thruster is an intelligent investment. Designed to save space, Dickson thrusters are engineered for sensitive and positive maneuvering, providing years of service in even the most brutal marine environments.
We build our hydraulic motors and propellors with Navy "G" bronze and stainless steel and use 316 stainless steel Parker hoses for motor and JIC fittings, assuring durability in both salt and fresh water.
Dickson Thruster sets the standard for excellence in every product we build and sell.
