2-Blade folding propeller

Cruisers and racers alike choose the Standard 2-Blade Flexofold because it combines the most efficient blade shape available with very low drag and moderate price.

Looking at the blade’s profile, you can see the large blade area necessary for powering performance. At the same time, there is twist and a hydrodynamic shape in the blades. This maximizes the efficiency along the length of the blade, not just at one point, as is the case in flat blades often seen on feathering props. Further to this, the twin-helical gears insure the blades will open consistently and fold back under sail into a very low drag configuration.

The propeller offers good performance in reverse too, giving you the rapid acceleration and deceleration required for maneuvering around the docks, in close quarters or in emergency stops.

Available diameters

Available in sizes from 12” through 20”, in many different pitches, the Standard 2-Blade Flexofold is outstanding for all kinds of boats.

The 2-blade Flexofold propellers are delivered for installation on standard SAE and Metric tapered shafts as well as sail drives.
