JPC Direct are East Coast agents for Sleipner. Sleipner are one of the best-known and most reputable thruster manufacturers in the marine market. We can supply a variety of Sleipner thrusters, as well as a full range of spare parts.

We can arrange to fit a bow or stern thruster anywhere around Norfolk and the Norfolk broads. We may also be able to help with fitting thrusters further afield if required.

With no obligation, we are happy to advise on the size and type of thruster to suit your needs, and offer a quote the same day. Give us a call on 01603 784884 or email sales@jpcdirect.com and we will be happy to help.

We are we happy to work either on a supply-only basis, if you are able to arrange fitting yourself, or to carry out your installation from start to finish, from initial enquiry to the completed fitting. Whatever works best for you.

If you are happier to discuss your requirements in person, or if you need technical advice due to your specific vessel, come in and see us at our office in Brundall. 

Like boats, thrusters come in various shapes and sizes, and we are here to help you with what your specific needs are. We also have lots of information on our website and blog.

Most of the Sleipner thrusters we supply and fit are tunnel thrusters. With these, you install a GRP tunnel through the bow below the waterline at the optimal point to provide maximum thrust.

It is not always possible to fit a tunnel thruster, however, and it may be necessary to fit an external thruster, or a retractable thruster. This depends on your specific boat.

If you already have a bow thruster fitted and need even more control, we can also supply and fit stern thrusters around Norfolk and the Norfolk broads. We can also help arrange fittings as far away as the Thames estuary.

Stern thrusters use the same motor as a bow thruster, but use special cowls to supply the correct thrust, and we can supply you with the full kit!
