Hoffert Marine Adds Hundested Propellers To Its Product Line

Hoffert Marine Inc., Jacksonville, Fla., supplier of deck and engine equipment and services, has added Hundested Multi-Pitch propellers to its products for distribution from New York south along the East Coast and to ports along the Gulf Coast. The Multi- Pitch propellers are manufactured in Hundested, Denmark and can be designed to individual customer requirements for trawlers, ferryboats, cargo vessels, seine net boats, and pleasure boats.

The manufacture of the propellers includes the original twobladed propellers from 400 to 1,650-mm in diameter, as well as the three and four-bladed models from 380 to 2,680-mm in diameter.

The propeller pitch can be designed according to individual customer requirements. Maneuverability, power, speed, and fuel savings are said to be some of the advantages of the Hundested Multi-Pitch propellers. By setting the pitch of the propeller blades, it is possible to obtain infinitely variable control of the vessel's speed fully independent of the engine speed.
