    Please allow 3-5 days of handling before we can ship your Max-Prop propeller. This is to allow any time for boring and assembly.

Easy Pitch Adjustment

Outstanding Power

Max-Prop Easy 4 blade has very low drag

Low Drag

Just like other Max-Prop propellers, the Easy feathers to a low drag position while sailing. Under sail the Max-Prop will increase sailing speed by about 15%, the largest difference being noticed when sailing in light air. When sailing with a fixed propeller the vessel has to overcome the fixed blade drag, installing a Max-Prop maximizes sailing performance.

Worth every penny

The 4 blade max prop should be standard equipment. This is my 3rd season with it. Sails faster, motors faster at lower rpm, and nearly zero prop walk when going in reverse. This is the best upgrade that I have done to my now 40 yo boat. The safety and comfort provided by this equipment is priceless, and every boat I own in the future will have one. It preforms as good as it looks.

Great service

Maxi prop initial use

I replaced a fixed 3 blade. The recommended maxi prop by PYI was the same diameter. The blade side is wildly different however. The Maxi prop does not generate nearly the same thrust as the fix blade. More sea trials will be needed to see if this even works. The staff at PYI were a bit unorganized so you need to keep on them to be sure the order is processed.

3 Blade Max Prop

My experience was great, from the selection process to ordering the right unit Fred Hutchison was very responsive to both emails and phone calls. The commitment on the shipping date was helpful in planning my haul out, PYI was just a great experience. Love the change in performance.
