SAILING WITHOUT COMPROMISE Volvo Penta folding propellers offer the best of both worlds – minimal drag while sailing combined with the high thrust of a fixed propeller while motoring – even in reverse. The unique and patented design always ensures quick and safe opening of the blades for excellent close-quarter maneuverability and minimal stopping distance. Whether you choose a 2, 3 or 4-blade model, the swept blade design (high-skew) provides extremely smooth running - virtually eliminating noise and vibrations for excellent comfort during motoring. And what’s more, the reduced drag under sail increases speed by up to 1.5 knots compared with a fixed propeller. Put all this together and you greatly increase your sailing pleasure. Folding propellers 1. High-skew blade design reduces pressure pulses to ensure smooth, low-noise operation with minimal vibrations. 2. Powerful thrust, even in reverse thanks to a highly efficient and patented blade geometry. This means excellent close-quarter maneuverability and short stopping distance. 3. Excellent durability and corrosion resistance thanks to specially developed nibral (nickel-bronze-aluminum) alloy. 4. The reliable and consistent conical teeth mechanism ensures synchronized opening and closing of the blades. INSTANT AND POWERFUL RESPONSE - EVEN IN REVERSE The patented design, with protruding blade tips ensures an instant opening action when the reverse gear is engaged. As soon as the propeller begins to rotate, mounting water pressure on the blade tips forces the blades to open. Centrifugal force then finalizes the opening action.
