Marine Feathering Propeller

About product

A marine feathering propeller is a specialized type of propeller designed for sailing vessels. Unlike fixed or folding propellers, a feathering propeller allows the blades to adjust their pitch angle individually, providing several advantages for sailing performance.

  • Increased sailing speeds by reducing drag and improving efficiency.
  • Enhanced performance under power with precise pitch angle adjustment.
  • Improved handling and maneuverability by minimizing prop walk.
  • Easy installation, maintenance, and removal for convenience and efficiency.

Product Detail

The key feature of a feathering propeller is its ability to twist or feather the blades. This twisting motion allows the blades to align with the water flow, reducing drag and increasing sailing efficiency. By adjusting the pitch angle, a feathering propeller can optimize the power transfer from the engine to the water, resulting in improved speed and maneuverability.

Marine Feathering Propeller Features

A marine feathering propeller offers several benefits for sailing vessels, including:

  • Increased Sailing Speeds: A feathering propeller can provide up to 1.5 knots of additional speed under sail. By reducing drag and optimizing the propeller’s performance, it allows the boat to move through the water more efficiently.
  • Enhanced Performance Under Power: Feathering propellers typically feature micrometric pitch settings, allowing for precise adjustment of the propeller’s pitch angle. This enables sailors to optimize their cruising speed and achieve better performance when using engine power.
  • Improved Handling: Feathering propellers are designed to minimize or eliminate “prop walk,” which refers to the tendency of a boat to veer to one side when in reverse. By providing improved backwards thrust, these propellers enhance handling and maneuverability, making it easier to control the boat during docking and close-quarters maneuvers.
  • Easy Installation, Maintenance, and Removal: Feathering propellers are designed for ease of installation and maintenance. They typically offer straightforward installation processes and are easy to adjust or remove when needed. This convenience allows sailors to quickly and efficiently replace or service their propellers as required.
