It’s crucial to keep a close eye on the propellers of these high-end vessels usually owned by people who don’t want to miss a beat along the sea faring itineraries.
At Baumann Propellers we can help you be sure your prop blades are giving your yacht optimal performance. We recommend you check your propeller often for nicks, rolled tips, or bent blades. Any distortion from normal will cause a loss in performance and can create vibrations harmful to the engine. Worn blades will allow the engine to accelerate beyond the recommended operating range, which can result in damage to the engine and poor fuel economy.
