FeatherStream A-Hub 3B


“From the beginning the exchange and communication with Chris from Darglow was very good.”

 “After one season with the new propeller we can say that this has been one of the best investments we ever did for the boat.

 “The performance of the 3-blade FeatherStream is very good under engine.  We have good thrust with reduced rpm and much to our surprise we found less fuel consumption compared to the fixed 3-blade prop. Even in rough conditions we still have enough power to go ahead, full speed rpm of 3000 is feasible but not necessary.”

 “Going reverse the prop effect is very low with good stopping (turning the boat in close conditions is still an adventure, but that is part of the long-keel design).

“The noise emission of the prop is more present than with the fixed 3 blade prop but it is good audible”

 “Last but not least we enjoyed sailing with new impressive silence (no shaft driving) and an increase of approx. 0,6 knots speed. We fully recommend the Featherstream Propeller to improve speed and performance of a long keel cruising yacht.”
