SeaProp60 Sailboat Propulsion System
The SeaProp60 saildrive is a propulsion system for sailboats with engines rated up to 56 kW (75 hp) @ 3600 rpm.
Sailboat manufacturers and operators alike benefit from this system's unique but proven design.
With a SeaProp60 saildrive, the sailboat manufacturer will overcome inherent limitations and problems of conventional
inboard shaft drive installations with a quicker, more versatile and simplified engine installation process.
Gone is the propeller shaft, along with its attendant coupling, stuffing box, cutless bearing, stern tube, and strut. Also eliminated
are the alignment procedures required between the engine and shaft that must be done on the production line.
The SeaProp60 can easily be mounted facing forward or aft. Because it isn�t constrained by shaft angle or aperture location, and it
offers the builder more versatility in engine placement and a smaller 'footprint' (no shaft, shaft log, or strut aft of the engine).
Boat operation will benefit from increased propulsion efficiency with the SeaProp60 saildrive. Unlike conventional drivelines, thrust
is parallel to the boat�s waterline, whereas the downward angle on a standard shaft means that some of the propeller�s thrust is wasted.
Experienced sailboat owners recognize saildrives are more efficient, quieter, offer much less vibration to the boat and provide all-around
smoother running - not to mention the absence of water leaking into the bilge through the stuffing box.
SeaProp60 can be matched with a variety of fixed or foldable propellers.
