Dedication and experience
The Danish company Flexofold ApS was established in 1992. With more than 25 years of dedicated work, Flexofold is now one of the most experienced and largest manufacturer of folding propellers for sailboats.
Since December 2017, Flexofold is owned by the engine manufacturer Yanmar Marine.
The first Flexofold Propeller was produced 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 has improved both forward and reverse performance. In the same year a 3-blade design was introduced using similar design parameters.
In 1998, an even lower drag Racing propeller was introduced. This was quickly adopted on boats like the Farr 40 where the absolute lowest drag and good performance under power is required.
In 2008, three new 4-blade propellers was included in the wide product range.
In 2016, the 2-blade Composite propeller was introduced
