Volvo Penta Propeller
The Volvo Penta 2-blade folding propeller is an excellent choice for most boats. The high skewed blade form converts more of the horsepower into thrust for maximum efficiency and minimum noise and the design insures the blade always will open under power and fold back under sail into a very low drag configuration. The large blade area contributes to the propeller’s high performance. The power range for the 2-blade propeller is 5-40 Hp and it is available in 6 sizes with several different pitches and a blade area of 25%.
The 3-blade folding propeller provides an alternative for those who have chosen fixed propellers for better reverse thrust and those who have chosen the conventional 2-blade folding propeller but need better manoeuvrability and performance. The power range for the 3-blade propeller is 25-60 Hp and it is available in 6 sizes with several different pitches, and a blade area of 36%.
