The ST230-OB Stern Thruster from Sideshift is perfect for most boats up to 35' in length; the unit mounts to the cavitation plate of any outboard motor or sterndrive for easy in-water installation, eliminating the mounting issues common to most outboard or sterndrive powered boats. The unique mounting position creates zero drag as the thruster rides above water when the boat is on plane.
Offering an immediate response with its powerful water cooled 12V motor, the heavy-duty 8" aluminum propeller provides instant lateral thrust for stress-free docking in any situation. Saltwater proven, the thruster is anode protected and finished with anti-foul paint over epoxy primer to prevent corrosion.
And for boats with existing bow thrusters, you can add our dual wireless joystick option for easy single-handed operation of both thrusters, providing true 360 degree control in any situation.
Shipped as a complete kit including:
- Motor controller

Our thrusters mount easily using our unique, universal mounting system. Virtually any V-shaped bow, pontoon or stern can be accommodated.
And, to make things even simpler, our thruster systems now come standard with our wireless joystick technology. The included wireless joystick control offers simple plug and play for the helm-to-motor controller connection, eliminating the hassle of long wire-runs, and shaving hours off installation time.
