Properly designed and manufactured propellers enable vessels to operate with minimal noise and vibration, and at top speeds with the lowest fuel consumption and highest levels of performance. Ask any vessel captain and he will tell you that any defect, environmental growth or wear on a propeller is immediately obvious in operational performance.
ZF Marine customizes and manufactures each propeller for a particular vessel type, size and operational requirement. The company’s association with some of the leading schools of hydrodynamic design have helped shape its propeller families to be some of the best in efficiency and robust design. In-house architects develop bespoke propellers that solve even the most challenging of applications and hull designs. Experts craft these products at ZF Marine’s manufacturing facility in a variety of sizes, from 20 to 60 inches, in either Nibral or bronze.
“Our propellers are aboard award-winning sportfishing boats and on leading commercial fishing vessels, among other applications,” said ZF Marine’s David Santos, Senior Sales Manager. “Our relationships in the marine market are unmatched – we are well known for our incredible quality and value. Through our dealer network, we will do everything in our power to guide a customer toward selecting the best product for their application.”
When owners purchase a ZF Marine propeller, they’re not just getting one of the industry’s top products, they’re also gaining access to ZF Marine’s exceptional customer support platform and global dealer network, which can provide assistance and replacement, no matter where a boat is in the world. These benefits are compounded when an operator also has ZF Marine transmissions, controls and thrusters, as there is no gap in the level of support, quality and care across the full propulsion system.
