For sailing boats we supply 2- and 3- blade solid and foldable propellers, 2- and 3- blade Max-Props and axis or sail-drive attachment.
Choosing the number of propeller blades
As every vessel has its own line, sailing area and engine, it is not possible to make universal statements about what is best. Each situation is unique and therefore you can count on us to make a customized calculation for your ship of which propeller is best as far as the number of blades and their width are concerned.
Choice of materials
Your sailing area is also important for the choice of materials. Manganese bronze is a good choice for fresh-water sailing. For salt-water sailing a CuNiAl (Copper – Nickel – Aluminum) propeller is recommended. This type has a longer life span, as it will not strip.
A propeller that has to be repaired is measured on a straightening bench, checking measurements and neing straightened when necessary. The propeller will be positioned at the right angle so the blades are calibrated, creating geometric balance. The propeller will be finished and balanced out statically.
