Flexofold 4 Blade Folding Propeller for Sailboats
While all sizes of propellers are stocked items, and will be directly shipped to you from the factory upon completion of your order, we take extra care to select the right propeller for you based on your vessel-specific info. So, please let us know your details using the SPEC-O-PROP button below, and we'll guide you through the process of selecting the best prop for your vessel. We'll also prepare a quotation for any of the options that we propose.
Flexofold propellers have very low drag while sailing but still give you maximum performance under power. Used by the world's largest OEMs.
4-blades certainly give you the most bight, and it is what you want for maximum thrust and easy maneuvering under power, but 4-bladed props typically add too much drag for cruising sailboats, and any gains under power are lost when sailing. Flexofold's unique 4-bladed folding design gives you trouble-free handling in both forward and reverse, as well as low drag sailing to add boat speed or keep the sails up longer in low winds.
When the sail magazines and boat builders do their testing they find that folding props generate at least 95% less drag than fixed props, and the Flexofold line always ranks near or at the top in performance. See an example here
Selecting the correct prop depends on many factors, including size, pitch, shaft diameter, engine rotation, engine specs, rudder clearance, etc., so please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to spec out your prop.
