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