The VARIPROP 2-Blade (DF 80 and DF 107)
for smaller sailing yachts up to 40 hp
The VARIPROP 2-blade (DF 80 and DF 107) is the standard propeller for smaller sailing yachts with an output of 6 – 40 kW. The 2-blade is ideal for such sailing yachts since it has very high efficiency under power, as well as very low drag, as it only has 2 blades.
The VARIPROP 2-blade's manoeuvrability is equally outstanding, since in reverse gear each blade self-adjusts to the optimum pitch.
The VARIPROP 2-blade is ideal for racing and cruising.
The VARIPROP 3-Blade
for sailing vessels and cruising yachts
The VARIPROP 3-blade is the original standard propeller for sailing vessels with an output of 6 – 550 kW. It delivers very smooth running, equally good stability especially at sea under power, and very low drag. Just like the VARIPROP 2-blade, the 3-blade has outstanding manoeuvrability, since in reverse each blade self-adjusts to the optimum pitch.
The VARIPROP 3-blade is the ideal propeller for cruising yachts. In exceptional cases or higher loads and we recommend our VARIPROP »Blue Water« (4-Blade).
4-Blatt-Power – Der VARIPROP „Blue Water“
For offshore sailing ships
Especially in blue water conditions, excessive blade loading causes cavitational noises, bubbles on blades and resulting loss of power, just when you need it most in the trough.
The solution is the VARIPROP 4-Blade — to-date worlds most modern 4-blade feathering propeller, with 30% larger blade areas, less blade loading, much greater thrust and undiminished power.
A smaller diameter fits where others cannot. Fit a 4 blade VARIPROP. The cost is less than you might think. The results are simply amazing. Smooth running, tremendous power under all conditions, no vibration.
