3-Blade Shaft Folding Propeller



Low drag under sail - maximum thrust under power


The 3 blade propeller from Flexofold made in bronze provides trouble-free handling and superior power in both forward and reverse. When folded, the low propeller drag ensures you top speed, and in lighter wind as well - with virtually no risk of catching lines or seaweed.

Original propeller for Beneteau, Dehler, Hanse Yachts, Jeanneau, Sunreef Catamarans, 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.
