Suggest consideration be given to Flex o fold propellers. I have been hearing really good comments on this one.

request feathering prop info

Installed a Max-prop on my Beneteau 31 3 yrs ago. Best purchase I ever made! Would recommend professional installation though.Prop was dis/reassembled 5 times & boat was hauled once before things were right.Performance under power- forward 98% of fixed blade prop,reverse 200%. Under sail, light air a full knot faster, med. air 1/2 knot faster.

Maxiprop is well known world wide and is highly regarded. I have never heard of the Variprop.

Looking at purchasing a feathering prop for a 39ft beneteau based UK / Europe. Considering a "Max-prop" (Italian made and supplied by "Darglow"in the UK) or a "Variprop" (made in Germany and supplied by "CJR propulsion" in the UK). Both look good and similar. Does anyone have any thoughts or views about these propellers? Thanks.
