FOR SALE - Gori Two Blade Folding Prop

Brand New , Never Installed Gori two blade folding prop one inch Shaft Diameter: 15 Inches Pitch: 12 Complete in original packaging with installation instructions Simple and easy to install.


Geared Blades:

Blades open and close together reducing vibration in forward and reverse Ensure correct pitch setting and performance when motoring Both blades always close simultaneously under sail reducing drag to a minimum

Increased Performance Under Sail:

Independent tests have shown 2-bladed Gori folding propellers can reduce the yacht's total drag up to 35% resulting in one full knot of improvement in speed under sail –Results vary depending on boat length and displacement Does not snag seaweed, lobster lines or plastic bags when sailing

Increased Performance Under Power:

The 2-blade Gori propeller proves equal to or better than most other 2 or 3 blade fixed, feathering and folding propellers in both forward and reverse Advanced blade design, shape and profile gives you optimum thrust and does not rely solely on centrifugal force to open the blades as do many other folding propeller types Contact – Andrew at
