FeatherStream B-Hub 4B

Island Packet

I have now returned from my Island Packet 38 in Turkey having put on your 4 blade FeatherStream propeller in May. This replaced the ******** ******** which was incompatible with the new Yanmar 55hp engine I had installed last year, as it produced massive vibrations over 1800 revs.”

 “I am very happy to report that your propeller has done everything that I had hoped for and more. Against the short steep seas of the Med and strong afternoon winds I never had any problems steaming into these conditions – often 2000 revs were enough to maintain 6 knots but I remember once going into 28 knots of wind with very choppy seas, took the engine to 2500 revs and still the boat was maintaining 6.7 knots. And under sail there was no drag that I could feel – in fact my wife managed 8.5 knots which is pretty good for a 12 tonne long keeled boat!”

 “Your recommendation for a 4 blade feathering prop was certainly spot on, for which many thanks. I have now sold the ******** ******** and look forward to many years use from the FeatherStream.
