Ewol propellers make maneuvering easier, increase sailing speed and increase cruising speed under power.

EWOL adjustable pitch propellers are made of stainless steel alloys that represent the highest technology in terms of marine corrosion and galvanic corrosion resistance, and are also equipped with the most refined technical solutions that make it unparalleled on the market.

EWOL feathering propellers can be fitted on sailing boats with both traditional (endothermic) and electric engines and with both mechanical and hydraulic inverters. The components of EWOL propellers are made of super-duplex stainless steel alloys, developed by the steel industry for extremely heavy tasks.

EWOL regularly presents new versions of its products with increased performance, and is now also working on developing additional innovative products that will come out in the short and medium term. Nowadays, anyone seeking a truly reliable product that performs over time, solves boat manoeuvrability and sailing speed problems, and is always up at the cutting edge of technology and materials, should install an EWOL propeller on their boat.

E3 Andromeda the smallest of Ewol propellers

E3 Andromeda is the smallest of Ewol propellers, which however offers the same features and advantages of the original E3 Orion even for smaller boats, roughly between 18 and 30 feet.

E3 Orion is a cutting-edge feathering propeller made by EWOL using high-resistance stainless steels

Its core is made up of gears that allow the blades to navigate according to the fluid threads of the water while sailing and provide the correct angle of incidence during engine navigation, improving both performances under sail and under engine.

E4 Pegasus is designed for large and luxurious sailing yachts 

In summer 2017, at the time of its twentieth year of business, Ewol added the E4 Pegasus feathering propeller to its standard production range.

Benefits of EWOL Propellers

Thrust in forward: it is comparable to the thrust of a good, well calculated fix propeller

Thrust in reverse: it is far superior to any fixed, folding or variable pitch propeller on the market and , almost completely eliminating the drift

Drastic reduction in hydrodynamic drag: under sail EWOL allows a gain between 0.5 knots and 1.5 knots of speed (folding props with 3 or 4 blades have higher drag than EWOL prop)

  • As an example, a fixed propeller 17 " / 3 blades at 8 knots has a drag of about 100 Lbs
  • With a folding propeller always 17 " / 3 blades the drag is approximately 11-22 Lbs depending on brand
  • With an EWOL propeller always 17 " / 3-blade the drag is about 5.5 Lbs

Extremely light and silent in inversions: thanks to the special streamlined design and the materials used for the construction, this will avoid stresses at the gearbox, yet the props are mechanically extremely strong

Three Props 1772x1181

Micro-setting of pitch: it is a device allowing fine adjustments to the boat's performance, this operation can easily be performed underwater in less than 20 seconds. The pitch setting is the finest in the market. Pitch setting precision is a very important topic, as it allows to adjust the cruising speed as desired, enhance maximum speed and reduce fuel consumption

Solaris 44.2 - Prop with ropecutter

The propeller is made entirely of Stainless Steel Super-Alloys (or for larger models of stainless steel and Titanium

Vibrations are eliminated: a central synchronization pinion coordinates the angle of all the blades simultaneously, . A precise dynamic balancing is also carried out on all our propellers to prevent any possible vibration.

Version FlexDrive with anti-shock joint to avoid any possible damaging to the Sail-Drive transmissions

Durable: all bearings are made up of interchangeable bushings that allow easy and accurate maintenance making the propeller always new after many years of operation (only EWOL props have such feature)

Easy installing and pulling: our props are supplied completely assembled, and don’t require any special skills or tool (the hub puller is integrated in the prop)

Quality check 100%: all propellers go through a complete check and break-in at 100% before shipments

Rough surface finish: the standard finishing of the prop is sandblasted, in order to increase adhesion of the anti-fouling. Should you anyway have a different preference, as an option we can supply the propeller painted with Siliconic antifouling or with polished surface

Warranty on fabrication defects: 3-year warranty from purchase date on any fabrication defects

E3 Andromeda the smallest of Ewol propellers

Small but powerful, it has a slim and streamlined body and it’s suitable for boats from 6 to 10 meters and engines from 7 to 30 hp

Lighter but always very performing with the engine both forward and reverse and increases the sailing speed in the utmost silence. Like the larger sisters ORION and PEGASUS but with the same features and cutting-edge technology in materials and solutions and with the latest generation “SWORD blades” that are efficient and silent.

EWOL Andromeda is a cutting-edge feathering propeller made by EWOL using high-resistance stainless steels. Like her larger sisters E3 ORION and E4 PEGASUS, its core is made up of gears that allow the blades to navigate according to the fluid threads of the water while sailing and provide the correct angle of incidence during engine navigation, improving both performances under sail and under engine.

The orientation of the blades is fully automatic and the micrometric setting of the pitch is performed from the outside using the adjustment ring. This allows the thrust to be optimized during the motorized gear, providing high cruising speeds at a low number of revs, with the consequent reductions in fuel consumption.

EWOL Andromeda brilliantly solves the problem of the lack of maneuverability of the boats when reversing, especially under difficult environmental conditions such as strong winds, limited spaces, rough seas, etc.

EWOL Andromeda propeller was designed to be installed, removed and adjusted with ease in just a few minutes, even with the boat in water.

EWOL Andromeda contains innovative technical solutions in its shell combined with the use of advanced materials that guarantee mechanical characteristics and corrosion resistance that are far superior to those of traditional propellers.

EWOL Andromeda will be presented to the public for the first time at the Genoa Boat Show 2020 - Accessories Pavilion B – 1 floor - Stand TU14

Since 1997 EWOL has been manufacturing adjustable pitch propellers for the propulsion of boats, using high-tech materials and technical solutions.

A continuously active R&D department and attentive and punctual customer service ensure that EWOL products are appreciated all over the world for their advantages in maneuverability, boat speed and for the simplicity of installation and adjustment.
