Good Idea to ask AMEL; - let us know the answer. 
BTW: my Amel-54 Hull Nr.-55 has no red stop button for the BT as well.

My Amel 54 number #35 has no emergency bow thruster switch - I wish it did.

I am masking Amel for a kit!

Hi Bill et al,

My 54 Hull 019 had the red stop button from when I bought her in 2017. In addition there is a description of its use and photo in the owners manual.

My feeling is that it was installed from new, at the factory.

Jamie, Amel added it later than your production. I would add it if I were you. Please do not quote me, but I thought Amel had a kit for any 54 owner to install this if it wasn't originally installed by Amel

Wolfgang, maybe this switch you are referencing is only on late model A54s. I do not have one to my knowledge.
Where is it located on your boat?
