Benefits of Choosing A Flexofold Folding Propeller
When purchasing a Flexofold Propeller, you will be joining a rapidly growing number of sailboat owners who enjoy the performance and safety benefits that their foldable propellers provide.
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.
Manoeuver 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 back up, 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 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. Smooth acting gears and strong materials secure long durability without the need of messy greasing, rebuilding or other any other maintenance your boat may require. Get a Flexofold propeller and spend your time sailing instead of fixing your boat, and enjoy the benefits for many years to come.
