3-Blade Saildrive Folding Propeller


Flexofold_3-Blade Saildrive Folding Propeller

Trouble-free handling and superior power 


The 3-blade Flexofold folding propeller provides trouble-free handling and superior power in both forward and reverse.

When folded, the low propeller drag ensures you and your boat will sail faster, and in lighter wind as well - with virtually no risk of catching lines or seaweed.

The original propeller for Beneteau, Dehler, Elan, Hanse Yachts, Jeanneau, Lagoon, Morris Yachts, X-Yachts and many more!​




Danish quality

All Flexofold propellers are designed and manufactured in Denmark in our single-purpose factory, equipped with modern CNC equipment and robot technology.

In 2017 Flexofold was acquired by Yanmar Marine International. However, Flexofold is still operating from the factory in Denmark, maintaining own distinct brand identity and remaining a Danish registered company.

The propellers are sold directly to boat builders as well as private boat owners worldwide. Due to our flexible production setup, we can manufacture and ship worldwide within a few days.
