Developed over fourteen years of research and development, the Seatorque ‘Boss’ Enclosed Shaft System is an oil-filled, self-contained shaft and thrust bearing assembly, supplied exclusively by Twin Disc Pacific as a complete unit from transmission output coupling to propeller end.
“At Seatorque our focus is on improving the performance of a boats propulsion and partnering with Twin Disc Pacific allows us to offer local boat owners a robust and effective engineering solution,” says Jana Stolper, Executive Vice President of Seatorque Control Systems. “At the same time we have a commitment to high levels of customer service and support and we know the team from Twin Disc Pacific can deliver this commitment to local boat owners.”
The non-rotating, full length shaft casing and thrust bearing assembly minimizes mechanical losses to only 2 percent, leaving valuable extra power for propulsion.
The Boss further delivers unrivaled ruggedness in operation coupled with the lowest underbody drag of any system currently available.
Suited to commercial and recreational vessels from 30 to 200 feet, the Boss provides reduced friction, better efficiency and allows for the use of softer engine mounts reducing vibration. It bolts on to the hull transferring the thrust from the propellers to the hull and not back through the engine, meaning there is less pressure on the mechanical equipment.
When purchasing the Boss, Seatorque offers a full 2 year or 500 hour limited international warranty, along with worldwide sales and service support. In addition, they carry a full inventory of spare parts, most available worldwide within 24 to 48 hours.
Twin Disc Pacific will showcase the Seatorque range at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, 25 to 28 May.
