Flex-O-fold


Flex-O-fold develops, manufactures and sells low drag folding propellers for sailboats and multihull yachts.The folding propellers are available as 2-Blade, 2-Blade racing, 3-Blade and 4-Blade in multiple sizes and pitches. All are delivered for both shaft and sail drive installation. Which one to choose? That depends on the kind of our sailing boat, its engine and, last but not least, on our priorities! A 2-blade propeller is more efficient than a 3-blade. Surprised? Well, most people are. Thus, a properly sized 2-blade will give us a higher speed at a given RPM in flat water than a properly sized 3-blade. The 2-blade is also lower in drag and cheaper. The 3-blade, because of its larger blade area, will accelerate boats faster. This means a 3-blade is better around the docks, when powering against head sea and when stopping. They pride themselves in direct contact and dialogue with our customers – shipyards and dedicated sailors around the world. In a way they ensure that, we get the right guidance and the best possible propeller solution for our sailboat.
