Hello Claudia, hello Jörg,

How was your term? Ours was very nice, we had many voyages, a couple of times to Helgoland and during the summer to the Baltic sea to Denmark, very relaxing.

 Our bottom line after this term is: The propeller is awesome! We have already told everyone we know. Pitch and thrust are perfect. The best part for us was the quiet and smooth operation and the minimized turbulence at the rudder during high sailing speeds (with 10 to 14 knots down the waves!) That was a lot of fun.

 Greetings

In January 2003, after an irreparable defect of our Maxprop feathering propeller in Gran Canaria, we have fitted our club-owned 18-metre sailing yacht “Passage” with the Variprop DF 112, a three-bladed feathering propeller by SPW. The “Passage”, a 18-metre Alusloop, was originally designed for the 1990s “Whitbread-around the World-Race” and has been in use for charter sailing trips and expeditions up north by our sailing club “Mare-Incognita” (www.mareincognita.ch) since 2010.

I ordered a new propeller for my Jeanneau Odyssey 54DS at the BOOT Düsseldorf in January 2019. Why at SPW? Without starting a discussion about the best feathering- and folding system, one has to find that the Variprop probably is the most precisely crafted product in comparison.

As a cruise and regatta sailor, I had the VARIPROP 3-Blade installed and switched to the 4-Blade in 2004. I have to say: The 4-Blade VARIPROP is a stunner. In wind and waves, when sailing doesn‘t work anymore, it is a genuine help. Even harbour or lock manoeuvres in extremely narrow spaces, even without bow and stern thrusters, can be carried out safely. During the 2019 season, I had the opportunity to become familiar with the 4-Blade VARIPROP GP. My test route went through the North Sea and the Baltic Sea to Bornholm. When motoring, the 4-Blade GP proved to be incredibly powerful. Diesel consumption decreased noticeably as well. I have been very satisfied with the SPW feathering propellers for 25 years.

A look at our VARIPROP feathering propeller. It reduces drag under sail but still produces full power when motoring. Since it is a 4 bladed prop it produces the most thrust in the aperture we have between the skeg and the hull of our Southerly 42.

A large number of boats is already using the VARIPROP series GP-80 bis GP-112, DF-140 und den großen Bruder, den VARIPROP XLS This is just a small excerpt from our references.
