TWO PROPELLERS. ONE SUPERIOR THRUST.
Launched in 1982, Volvo Penta showed the marine industry that twin counter-rotating propellers could produce unparalleled thrust, straight and true tracking along with faster acceleration – a completely new boating experience.
The duoprop propellers are designed to form a vital part of the driveline, providing highly efficient and predictable handling, together with excellent onboard comfort and fuel efficiency. Every set of duoprop propellers is designed, tested and manufactured together to ensure not only a high top speed, but the best overall performance – all this while securing the service life of your drive.
1. Perfectly matched pitch and camber distribution contributes to excellent propeller grip, optimal operational efficiency, safe and predictable handling.
2. Optimized torque distribution between front and rear propellers ensures that the drive works with the load it is designed for – essential in preserving the life of the drivetrain.
3. Precise balancing of each propeller gives minimal vibrations, quiet and smooth operation. It is also essential for efficiency and minimizes wear on the drivetrain.
