The ezDrive Thruster is a compact, powerful and energy efficient thruster, allowing wake boarders, wake surfers and watersports enthusiasts greater control of their boats. The EzDrive Thruster lets boaters U-turn in under 10 seconds to pick up downed riders for added swimmer safety, easier maneuvering and docking/trailering. It provides 30% less fuel usage.

A game changer for watersports, EzDrive is small but delivers great power and control in turns. Available in horizontal and vertical configurations, mounting installation is well within the realm of a handy, DIY-boat owner. Once in place, maintenance is minimal. As a result, adding a thruster like the ezDrive is a great way to upgrade your boat, enhance its functionality and add to its resale or trade-in value.
