Ultimate maneuverability with unmatched efficiency. This is what defines the Drop Marine Sidewinder. Incorporating many of the proven design features of the Dozer, while adding the capability of an azimuth drive, the Sidewinder can be found hard at work in booming grounds across B.C., the PNW and Alaska.
Utilizing the same innovative manufacturing and design process as the rest of our vessel lineup, the Sidewinder delivers the value and reliability that Drop Marine stands for.
Selected as a prime platform for further developing technologies to improve small vessel efficiency and increased return from our power, propulsion, operation and maintenance systems, the Sidewinder is built to deliver.
The most powerful workhorse on the water. Our Dozers are built from the ground up to withstand the most rugged conditions, and our sophisticated manufacturing capabilities offer a wide array of options to suit the needs of your crew – full customization to match the maneuverability of this powerful vessel.
The innovative manufacturing and design of Dozer, Sidewinder and Super Dozer Vessels bring long lasting reliable solutions to the marine market. The propulsive suite developed by DROP can improve the overall efficiency of a vessel while reducing the operational costs and increasing the stability and consistency of a vessel.

Return to Port
Stranded cable ferry?
Passenger safety & recovery concerns?
Public confidence impact?
The Return to Port System (RTP) by DROP Marine is a reliable, environmentally friendly power solution that can be used on any cable ferry to get the ferry back to port in the event of a vessel main system malfunction by a single user in under 2 minutes.
New or retrofitted with the Return to Port System, RTP simultaneously mitigates the risk of stranding, saves costs on annual maintenance operations, and provides an innovative environmentally friendly solution for your vessel.
The RTP system uses one cable and, through DROP engineering ingenuity, translates 5 hp into a ferry speed up to 1 knot.
