"Partnering with Princecraft is a fantastic opportunity for us to offer our technology to a company with a deep history of product innovation and industry firsts."
CARLETON PLACE, ON, October 20, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- As competition within the pontoon boat industry intensifies, this partnership will provide Princecraft with an option not currently available from other pontoon boat manufacturers. For Sideshift this agreement is a significant opportunity to promote its products with a well-recognized leader in the boating industry.
Winner of a "Best in Show" award at the 2016 Vancouver Boat Show, the revolutionary PT230 is the world's first retractable bow thruster designed for today's modern pontoon boat. The unit mounts easily on any dual or triple pontoon design, and with a touch of the helm-mounted wireless joystick the stress of docking and close-quarters maneuvering is completely eliminated.
"At Princecraft, we are always looking for ways to improve our customer's experience on the water," said Jean-Philippe Martin-Dubois, Director of Marketing with Princecraft Boats. "The PT230 is all about reducing the stress of docking, and we're excited to be working with Sideshift to bring this innovative new feature to our Vogue series customers."
"We are thrilled to be working with a fellow Canadian-based company," said Rob Griffin, CEO of Sideshift. "Partnering with Princecraft is a fantastic opportunity for us to offer our technology to a company with a deep history of product innovation and industry firsts."
The PT230 retractable thruster will be available for order on all 2017 Vogue series boats.

Sideshift is focused on one simple mission: We take the stress out of docking your boat. Our innovative bow and stern thruster technology sets the standard for affordable, powerful and easy-to-install thruster solutions for any type of boat. www.Sideshift.com
