In summer 2017, at the time of its twentieth year of business, EWOL added the E4 PEGASUS feathering propeller to its standard production range.
Following 2 years of intense development in our laboratories, E4 PEGASUS was designed for large and luxurious sailing yachts, Maxi and miniMaxi, generally between 60-100 feet long, with an engine power of about 500 HP.
Its large surface area covers 4 blades, E4 PEGASUS ensures an important and efficient thrust both going forward and in reverse, providing high cruising speeds, great boat maneuverability, but at the same time smooth and safe reversing.
Like all EWOL propellers, E4 PEGASUS owes its exceptional features to its quality materials.
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. The feathering position also allows to reduce the water drag with consequent increase of sailing speed.
There are 3 versions of E4 PEGASUS: Full Super-Duplex Steel, Super-Duplex with Titanium blades, or all-Titanium
