EWOL Andromeda 3-blade propeller: the new hi-tech propeller for small sailboats
Ewol’s Andromeda propeller is the Italian company’s latest innovation: it is small but powerful, has a slimmer, streamlined body and is suitable for boats from 6 to 10 meters and engines from 7 to 30 hp
EWOL Andromeda 3-blade propeller. Lighter in weight but still very high-performance when motoring both forward and reverse and increases speed when sailing in maximum silence. Like its bigger sisters Orion and Pegasus but with the same features and cutting-edge technology in materials and solutions plus the latest generation of efficient and quiet “Sword” blades.
Andromeda is a state-of-the-art flag propeller made by Ewol totally from high-strength stainless steels. Like its big sisters, its heart is made up of gears that allow the blades to orient themselves according to the fluid threads of the water while sailing and arrange themselves at the correct angle of incidence while motoring, thus improving the performance of the boat under both sail and motor.
Blade orientation is fully automatic, and micrometric pitch adjustment is made from the outside by means of the adjustment ring nut. This makes it possible to optimize thrust during motoring, thus allowing high cruising speeds at low rpm, resulting in reduced fuel consumption.
Andromeda brilliantly solves the problem of low maneuverability of boats in reverse, especially in difficult environmental conditions such as high winds, limited space, rough seas, etc. The propeller is designed to be installed, removed and adjusted very easily within minutes and even with the boat in the water.
The propeller encompasses innovative technical solutions in its shell combined with the use of state-of-the-art materials that guarantee mechanical and corrosion resistance characteristics that are absolutely superior to those of traditional type propellers.
