The SeaProp60 sail drive is a propulsion system for sailboats with engines rated up to 56 kW (75 hp) @ 3600 rpm. Sailboat manufacturers and operators alike benefit from this system's unique but proven design.
With a SeaProp60 sail drive, the sailboat manufacturer will overcome inherent limitations and problems of conventional inboard shaft drive installations with a quicker, more versatile and simplified engine installation process.
Gone is the propeller shaft, along with its attendant coupling, stuffing box, cutless bearing, stern tube, and strut. Also eliminated are the alignment procedures required between the engine and shaft that must be done on the production line.
Experienced sailboat owners recognize sail drives are more efficient, quieter, offer much less vibration to the boat and provide all-around smoother running - not to mention the absence of water leaking into the bilge through the stuffing box.
SeaProp60 can be matched with a variety of fixed or foldable propellers.
