Sailing without compromise

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.


Minimizing drag and increasing speed

Volvo Penta folding propellers improve the performance of your boat minimizing drag and increasing speed – up to 1.5 knots under sail, compared with a fixed propeller. In addition, the sleek profile also reduces the risk of snagging ropes, nets and debris when sailing.

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 fi nalizes the opening action.
