  • Description

    The Max-Prop Easy is a step forward in Max-Prop design. This propeller replaces the well-known Max-Prop Classic, facilitating simplicity for the customer without sacrificing performance. The Easy model’s main attributes over the Classic are: 1) ease of installation (simple bolt on to the shaft); and 2) flexibility of pitch adjustment without the need of a haul out.

    • Runs much smoother than a two blade
    • Low drag under sail (slightly more than a 2 blade)
    • Available from 12" to 26"
    • For shafts 3/4" to 1-3/4"
    • Best suited for 24’ to 55’ cruiser (medium displacement)

  • Shipping

    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.


If your engine achieves either too much or too little RPM at max throttle, adjust the pitch to a higher or lower setting to attain the correct RPM. Pitch adjustment can be done in the water as the propeller does not need to be disassembled to change the pitch.

Outstanding Power

In forward the Max-Prop will offer 96% of the efficiency of a fixed blade propeller of the same diameter and pitch. The 4% loss in power can usually be eliminated by precisely matching the pitch of the Max-Prop to fit the boat engine combination. The three blade has a major advantage when going against heavy winds and seas, it will maintain the boat speed up to 30% better than the two blade.

Unmatched Reverse

The Max-Prop provides 80% more power than a comparable fixed blade propeller. The Max-Prop utilizes the same leading edge in forward as it does in reverse giving the propeller the same thrust in both directions dramatically improving control and power in reverse.
