MAX PROP



Low drag

Under sail the MAX PROP will increase sailing speed by about 15%, the largest difference being noticed when sailing in light air. When sailing with a fixed propeller the vessel has to overcome the fixed blade drag, installing a MAX PROP maximizes sailing performance.

Reliability
MAX PROP uses a “differential” type design so all blades open in unison in forward or reverse. The extraordinary reliability of MAX PROP has made it an overwhelming choice for long range cruisers.

Great Reverse
The MAX PROP provides 80% greater reverse power than a comparable fixed blade propeller. In reverse the blades rotate 180° in ¾ turn of shaft giving the MAX PROP the same efficiency in reverse as in forward.


Adjustability
The pitch is adjustable on all Max Props. This allows you to optimize the propeller pitch to the engine to achieve maximum efficiency.


MAX PROP EASY 3 and 4 BLADES

  • New blade and hub design
  • Very low sailing drag
  • Great forward power in all conditions
  • Same outstanding revere as the CLASSIC model
  • External adjustable pitch (no need for a haul out)
  • One piece installation like a fixed propeller (can be done easily by a diver, no need for a haul out)
  • Ideal for local and long range cruising
 

MAX PROP WHISPER 5 BLADES

  • Efficient power
  • Outstanding reverse
  • Ultra smooth operation (reduction of noise and vibration)
  • Low drag
  • External adjustable pitch (no need for a haul out)
  • One piece installation (can be done easily by a diver, no need for a haul out)
  • Ideal for heavy displacement cruisers wanting the extra power and smoothness of a 5 blade propeller


MAX PROP BOOMERANG 5 BLADES

The MAX PROP BOOMERANG propeller keeps all the advantages of the other MAX PROP models. The main feature of this new propeller is the patented elastic element inside the propeller mechanism. This custom element has been developed over the last 4 years and is now tested on several vessels with excellent results. As soon as the gearbox is no longer engaged the propeller blades return automatically in feathering position, even if the shaft is not stopped. This avoids the need for any type of shaft brake mounted on the vessel. Furthermore the elastic elements grants "antishock" (shock damping) in the propulsion system.
