Service & Parts


Carolina Bow Thruster (CBT) is highly experienced in servicing bow and stern thrusters, stabilizers, engine controls, windlasses and other electrical and hydraulic control systems that you rely on every time you leave the dock.  We service most every brand and have experience with them all.  In addition we are very familiar with most boat manufacturers and models.

Conveniently located to all Carolina marinas and boatyards, we make every effort to minimize your boating downtime, respect the value of the time you have to enjoy your boat and we schedule away from precious weekend days. Our experience and expertise makes it easier for us to arrive at your boat with all of the tools and parts we need to make our service appointments a one stop event.  We do our best to honor our schedule and communicate with you quickly when the inevitable unforeseen events occur that might put a hitch in our best laid plans.

In addition to fast access to a stock of parts and a network of distributors, CBT can fabricate its own parts – often a key to quick turnarounds and servicing certain foreign boats with long parts lead-times.

CBT can also help do-it-yourself services by helping to identify and supplying the right parts when you are unsure of what is needed.

OEM Bow Thruster Installation

Carolina Bow Thruster is the OEM installation resource utilized by trusted boat manufacturers such as Regulator Marine, Spencer Yachts and Jarrett Bay.

We design the bow thruster installation kit and process for each manufacturer so that it seamlessly fits with their unique boat design, fabrication and assembly sequence.  In addition, we work out a communication and work plan with the OEM’s production control planners so that our crew can be on the factory floor ready to go as needed. And, of course, our work is performed to the quality and workmanship standards that each OEM expects.

With Carolina Bow Thruster’s unique cooperative approach an OEM boat manufacturer can easily add bow thrusters as a factory installed option.
