We are considering a stern thruster on our 2007 32. Have any of you done this? How well does it work? Who installed it?

We had a stern thruster added to our 37 a few years ago. It was a great addition. Cap Sante Marine did the installation of the unit. I had my regular boat electrician do all the wiring and had a stainless fabricator build and install the cage around the thruster.January 30, 2019 at 10:05 am #10123
posted the following on the Sentoa list, but not sure I did it correctly.
We have NT32-300. A prior owner of the boat had a stern thruster installed. As a relatively new NT owner and coming from a boat that had twin diesels, I’ve used my stern thruster a fair amount. I suspect that as time goes on my reliance on the stern thruster might lessen. But right now it’s great to have one.
A minor consideration: our stern thruster is smaller than the bow thruster. There might be an argument that both thruster have the same hp rating so that sideways thrust is equal.
Is it worth the cost? Can’t answer that directly. But I’d certainly be in favor of adding one on to a boat I’ve purchased.
