The Extendo Propeller,

the Under sized prop solution

SIZE MATTERS

We estimate that 80% of sailboats in the US have undersized props. For example, Yanmar recommends a 16 inch 2 bladed prop for the 2GM20, but most US boats have to run with a 15" prop or smaller. This results in 20-30% loss of thrust. You don't need a bigger motor; you need a bigger prop.

If you don't have room for one of our standard props and need a larger prop, we have a bolt-on solution: the Extendo. For boats with prop shafts on a strut, the Extendo will allow you to swing a prop with two more inches in diameter. The result will be 30% more power in forward and more control in reverse.

 
Feathering Propellers
Improve your sailing performance by changing position  when you set sail!!
   Adjustable forward pitch to fine tune motoring performance. Feathering Propellers

For boats with apertures,

.  Our feathering propellers  do not take up the same space as folding propellers and may fit in your aperture. The feathering propeller can improve your sailing performance. Check if our feathering propeller will fit your aperture go to Feathering propeller clearence

Information about our feathering propeller

CORRECT PITCH AND DIAMETER ON THE FIRST TRY - GUARANTEED

We focus exclusively on props for sailboats under 40'. We've already tested many boat and motor combinations on the water, so we know the best prop for your application. And we guarantee you'll be satisfied, or your money back.


FLEX PITCH = PERFECT PITCH

Urethane props have a major advantage in that they flex more than metal. This means you get a range of pitches all in one prop. You'll be able to cruise quietly in calms (hull speed at 2200 RPM), go to maximum thrust when you need it, AND have great handling in reverse.

MODERN BLADE SHAPE

Cast bronze blades have a curved top and a flat bottom. This partly explains why many sailboats motor passably well in forward, but don't reverse well.

We updated the PerfectPitch blade with an improved airfoil shape, rounding them on both sides. These blade shape improvements alone account for dramatic performance increases, particularly in reverse

.

SAILORS LOVE OUR PROPS

Here's what sailors have to say about Perfect Pitch Propellers:

"It's so good in reverse, I backed up around the harbor for 20 minutes. It's fun."
-- Islander 33 / Universal Atomic 4

"CDI is much better going ahead in wind and waves."
--C & C 27 / Universal Atomic 4

"No comparison. 5.5 knots old vs 7.2 knots Perfect Pitch....I can now back down @ 4.5 with control. We did this for mile."
-- Jim Brown Trimaran / Yanmar 18 HP (2.62:1)

"Requires less power for maneuvering. It's hard to believe prop of the same size can make such a big difference."
-- Catalina 34 / Universal 21 HP (2:1)

"Cavitation and prop noise is a chronic problem with Corvettes and the CDI prop seems to have finally fixed it."
-- C & C Corvette 31 / Universal Atomic 4

"Super! No contest! This should have been my first choice."
-- Nor-Sea 27 / Yanmar 2Gm 20
