Hydromaster is a manufacturer of steerable propulsion systems for ships. They operate from Rotterdam (the Netherlands) and Grays (United Kingdom) and supply and service their systems worldwide.
Originating during the 1930s, steerable thrusters were first operated on a grand scale to propel assault barges deployed in the Pacific. During D-Day they were installed on ferries to reach Normandy and at a later stage installed on pontoons to cross rivers in mainland Europe.
In the early 1950's a license was issued to the United Kingdom, from which Hydromaster was born, where they continued to build 360 degrees steerable thrusters on this revolutionary technology. The original Hydromaster, valued for its robust fully mechanical design, still works every day on hundreds of ferries, barges and pontoons worldwide. At Hydromaster they continue to maintain this original design, unique for its simplicity and durability. At the same time, they invest in innovative solutions applying the latest insights and technologies, with the ultimate goal of providing their clients with the best possible solution.
