  • Maxprop 2 Blade Side ViewEfficient Power:

    In forward the Max-Prop will offer 96% of the efficiency of a fixed blade propeller of the same diameter and pitch. The 4% loss in power can usually be eliminated by precisely matching the pitch of the Max-Prop to fit the boat engine combination. With the large blade area of a 2 blade it will power as well or better than any low drag propeller on the market.
  • Outstanding Reverse:

    the Max-Prop provides 80% more power than a comparable fixed blade propeller. The Max-Prop utilizes the same leading edge in forward as it does in reverse giving the propeller the same thrust in both directions dramatically improving control and power in reverse.
  • Unequaled Reliability

    : With over 35,000 Classic Max-Props in the water, the Classic Max-Prop has become a legend in the sailing community for its durability
  • 2 Blade Max-Prop FeatheredVery Low Drag:

    Under sail the Max-Prop will increase sailing speed by about 15%, the largest difference being noticed when sailing in light air. When sailing with a fixed propeller the vessel has to overcome the fixed blade drag, installing a Max-Prop maximizes sailing performance.
  • Internal Adjustable Pitch:

    All Max-Props have adjustable pitch settings. The Classic is adjustable in 2 degree increments. This can be done in minutes by disassembling it and reassembling it to the new configuration.
