Pioneers of Steerable Propulsion

Valued for its sturdy fully-mechanical design, Hydromaster propels hundreds of ferries, barges and pontoons worldwide every day – from remote locations with no support facilities, demanding environments of marine contractors and the armed forces to state-of-the-art hybrid or full electric propulsion systems.

At Hydromaster we continue to maintain our original design, unique for its simplicity and durability. At the same time, we’re investing in innovative solutions and applying the latest insights and technologies, with the ultimate goal of providing our clients with the best possible solutions.
