Gori 3 Blade Sailboat Propeller 20"
Gori Folding Propeller for Volvo Penta, Yanmar and Shaft Drive applications - SAE or Metric.
The 3-blade Gori folding propeller "overdrive" function adds a new dimension to sailing under power. The helmsman can choose the propeller pitch and profile in the water while sailing forward, by regulating the yacht's shift and throttle control. Without the use of vulnerable hydraulics or complicated mechanical devices.The "overdrive" is used when motor sailing in fair weather or when using the engine under sail. The "overdrive" gives the same speed at lower rpms. The result is less engine noise, less vibration and better fuel economy.
First off, you will see an increase in sailing speeds over a fixed 3-blade propeller. The drag reduction will amount to approx. 0.95 + of a knot. The drag for both the Gori 2-blade & 3-blade propellers is the lowest of any fixed, feathering or folding propellers giving increased sailing speeds & less turbulence over the rudder enabling you to point higher, steer easier. The unique folding design prevents seaweed etc from fouling on the propeller giving increased speed potential. The geared blade design is very positive and ensures that all the blades open & close all together in one shaft revolution giving peace of mind when maneuvering – full control.
