Marine Folding Propeller

About product

The marine folding propeller is a compact and powerful propeller specifically designed for sailboats and yachts. With its slim and streamlined body, it offers reduced drag, resulting in improved sailing performance. This folding propeller is ideal for boats ranging from 18 to 36 feet (6 to 11 meters) in length and is compatible with engines ranging from 7 to 35 horsepower. Its small size allows for easy installation and operation, while still delivering the necessary thrust for efficient propulsion. Whether you have a smaller recreational boat or a mid-sized yacht, the marine folding propeller provides a reliable and efficient solution for enhancing your sailing experience.

Here are some key features and benefits of marine folding propellers:

  • Reduced Drag: The folding mechanism allows the blades to fold back, significantly reducing drag when sailing. This reduction in drag helps improve the vessel’s speed and overall sailing efficiency.
  • Improved Sailing Performance: With reduced drag, a folding propeller allows the yacht to sail more efficiently, harnessing the power of the wind without the resistance caused by a fixed propeller. This can result in better upwind performance and increased maneuverability.
  • Minimized Fouling Risk: When the yacht is under sail, the folded blades are less likely to catch debris or suffer from fouling compared to fixed propellers. This helps maintain propeller efficiency and reduces the need for frequent cleaning or maintenance.
  • Easy Deployment: Folding propellers are designed to easily deploy when the engine is engaged for propulsion. The blades unfold and lock into position, providing the necessary thrust for efficient power-driven navigation.
  • Versatility: Marine folding propellers are versatile and suitable for a wide range of sailboats and yachts. They can be installed on various sizes and types of vessels, offering improved performance and convenience.
