Volvo Penta folding propellers improve the performance of your boat minimizing drag and increasing speed – up to 1.5 knots under sail, compared with a fixed propeller. In addition, the sleek profile also reduces the risk of snagging ropes, nets and debris when sailing.
At 8 knots, for example, a 3-blade fixed propeller produces more than six times the drag of a 3 blade folding propeller. This means a typical journey across the English Channel can be reduced by up to 4 hours thanks to lower drag.
Please note a hub kit is required to complete the installation.
