Jet Thruster is an indispensable part
When we look at developments on the road, big changes are ahead of us. Electrical transmission is all the rage and self-driving cars are here to stay. But how are the developments in the maritime sector? Pieter Boon and Paul van Hagen are with Xomnia, a company located in the heart of Amsterdam, didn’t hesitate for a moment and decided to provide counterbalance on water in the form of developing a self-driving boat. Holland Marine Parts also takes part in this innovative project by supplying a dubbel JT50 single.
You’ll need reliable parts to start off with. During the transition, the Harding lifeboat has been equipped with two E-thrusters, Jet Thrusters and a sufficient battery package of 48V. The diesel engine will remain available to use, as the engine, prop shaft and rudder steering are still there. During sailing, when only the E-Thrusters and Jet Thrusters are operating, the software continuously analyzes the images livestream of the 5 webcams and learns from how the skipper reacts on various situations. In turn this provides a visual observation, whereby every change around the boat is being noted and is being compared in realtime with the pre-learned images.

Patrick Noppen: MasterCraft X-30
Patrick Noppen realises all too well that luxuries don't just fall into your lap. Only through hard work can you afford luxuries such as the MasterCraft X-30, a spacious and luxurious speedboat of American make. "The performance on the water is amazing. We are enjoying it immensely. We found only one disadvantage: the propeller shaft construction, combined with the high power, made manoeuvring a bit tricky, especially in cramped spaces. That's why, in February 2012, I had the Jet Thruster JT-30 installed in the stern.
Ever since I started to sail my MasterCraft with the Jet Thruster, docking has become much easier. Therefore I can recommend the Jet Thruster to anyone."
