The Varifold 3 blade folding sailboat propeller is a design breakthrough in propeller technology. It is a winning combination of good thrust, improved performance in reverse maneuvers and smooth, quiet running when powered. Developed especially for cruising and racing yachts, its cambered design combined with skewed blade tips ensures that maximum thrust is delivered with minimum noise and vibration. Varifold”s feathered position is also unique. The blades fold in with only the slightest of gaps, thereby minimizing drag when sailing. The blades open out against buffer pads fitted in the hub. These buffers cushion the blades when the propeller opens into drive position. Each Varifold is dynamically finely balanced, and, with its gleaming, matt finish, stands out as a top-quality propeller. Folding propeller in mother-of-pearl finish.
