Gori releases new prop and logo
Three-blade propeller launched along with new company branding.
Danish propeller manufacturer, Gori Propeller, has introduced a new three-blade propeller for yachts, coinciding with the launch of a new corporate look and website.
The new folding single-pitch (SP) propeller (distributed exclusively by Power Equipment) is based on the company's standard three-blade propeller introduced in 1994 but without the 'overdrive' function for those sailors who prefer not to use it. It has the same features as the standard propeller including a 360o pivot when switching between forward and reverse with the same pitch in either direction for improved stopping.
The propeller has low drag (1.4 Newton at 6 knots) and does not auto rotate when folded, eliminating the need for a shaft brake.
The SP propeller is available for sail-drive engines only at the moment and for left-hand propellers from 15”-20”. Larger right-hand propellers from 22” to 26” will be available later this year and larger left-hand versions will be developed if there is demand for them. Because the new propeller is fully equivalent to the overdrive version, the existing calculation program on www.gori-propeller.com can be used for both versions.
Gori Propeller is a fully-owned subsidiary of marine rigging manufacturer BSI A/S which acquired the company in 2015. As a result, Gori has taken on the BSI corporate identity with a new red and blue logo in keeping with the group's other brands.
The company also has a new website with more product information including illustrated instructions that can be downloaded and images of spare parts with order numbers.
