"What can we do to make docking easier and keep more people in boating?" This question inspired marine industry veteran Tom Gillikin to develop Florida Bow Thrusters, specializing in mobile nationwide installations.


Through close partnerships with the most recognized thruster manufacturers in the world, Florida Bow Thruster offers the precise selection of hardware for a wide variety of sail and power boats. Our impressive network of boat dealers and marinas throughout the United States works quickly to carefully get your boat out of the water. Factory trained mobile installation teams take over to complete the installation process that typically takes just days, not weeks. Florida Bow Thrusters also sells and installs one of the most durable hydraulic swim platforms available.
