RETRACTABLE BOW THRUSTERS
Even for the more experienced skipper, it can be difficult to maneuver the boat in harsh wind conditions and strong currents. With the new line of retractables from VETUS though, anyone can dock and turn a boat even in the smallest of ports! This low drag solution will make your docking experience easier, faster and just plain more enjoyable.
"I've been dealing with HGFR for 3 years. They have attended to my boat for antifouling, modifications, fitting transducers, cleaning and fitting a bow thruster. All this carried out by a competent family firm. Their work is done in a friendly manner, with suggestions and advice along the way. I have confidence with all their workmanship and will carry on dealing with them in the future."
