On a folding propeller the blades do not stick out while sailing as they do on fixed and feathering propellers. You won’t catch lobster or crab pots, fishing lines or debris in the water, a “catch” which ultimately may result in loss of steering ability or ultimately an accident.
Maneuver the Docks Like You Would the Sea
Due it's powerful shape and hydrodynamic design, the Flexofold propellers have superior forward, stopping, and reversing power. One test showed that a 63 foot Hanse went from 8 knots ahead to dead-in-the-water in one boat length! Whoever said a folding propeller can’t reverse, hasn't tried a Flexofold!
Low Drag - High Speed
A folding propeller eliminates almost all of the drag from a fixed propeller and improves your sailing performance by 15% on average. Equipping your boat with a Flexofold will not only increase it's performance more than any other addition, it will also make your voyages even more enjoyable than they were before. You can sail faster than the guy who used to pass you, and even in lighter wind than ever before. Enjoy your sailboat at a higher speed - enjoy your sailboat with a Flexofold.
Less Noise - More Comfort
The weather is perfect, the wind is optimal and the sails are set. An ideal situation like this becomes harder to enjoy when all you can hear is the noise from a fixed propeller. With a Flexofold propeller, the noise will be as low as the drag is. Unlike other propeller brands, Flexofold has made sure to include strong, built-in shock absorbers for quiet opening.
Get Your Money's Worth
On a Flexofold propeller, the only moving parts are the blades and the hub. Smooth acting gears and strong materials secure long durability without the need of messy greasing, rebuilding or any other maintenance your boat may require. The only maintenance required for a Flexofold propeller is cleaning and replacing of the anode. Get a Flexofold propeller and spend your time sailing instead of fixing your boat, and enjoy the benefits for many years to come.
