The Yachting division of Van der Velden Marine Systems, a member of the Holland Yachting Group, will exhibit at the Dubai International Boat Show (11 – 15 March 2008). Its stand will showcase a prototype of the revolutionary EPS™ thruster and a video presentation. Van der Velden Marine Systems can be found at stand number G3-2.
From complete systems to vital components, Van der Velden specialises in hydraulic solutions for motor and sailing yachts. Recognising the unique and demanding requirements of owners, the company designs, manufactures and installs systems of the highest calibre.
Van der Velden’s portfolio ranges from high-tech rudders and steering gear to passerelles, side boarding ladders and marine cranes. The company is also a major supplier of hydraulic integrated systems to superyachts. The benefits of its BARKE® rudder typifies the added value offered by a Van der Velden solution: maximum manoeuvrability, optimal comfort, smooth cruising and low noise levels. High-lift manoeuvring equipment such as the BARKE® rudder is also very suitable and efficient for meeting the requirements of modern yachts with Dynamic Positioning systems.
The revolutionary EPS™ Silent thruster, which is also available in a retractable version, represents a breakthrough in the fields of noise levels, low weight, space saving and comfort.
The success of the EPS™ Side Tunnel thruster led to the development of a propulsion variant, the EPS™ Azimuthing Retractable thruster, which can also be deployed as a main propeller.
