Max-Prop - a legend for 40 years, and THE standard for feathering propellers worldwide! Sailtec is representative for Max-Prop, and we supply and services all Max-Prop products.
One of the key features of the Max-Prop is that it automatically adjusts its propeller blade position to a preselected pitch value. Once in feathering, it offers as little resistance as possible (similar to a folding propeller, but better). This improves the ship speed under sail by about 15% compared to a ship with a conventional fixed pitch propeller.
