The first Flexofold Propeller was shipped in 1993 and was quickly recognized as a superior product. Not to be satisfied, Flexofold introduced a new blade shape in 1997.
The wider blade design and redistributed mass improved both forward and reverse performance. Also introduced in that year was a 3-blade design using similar design parameters.
In 1998, we introduced an even lower drag Racing propeller. This was quickly adopted on boats like the Farr 40 where the absolute lowest drag and good performance under power are required.
In 2008, three new 4-blade propellers was included in the wide product range.
In 2016, the 2-blade Composite propeller was introduced and
