Adjustable Pitch Composite Propellers for Airboats
Looking for "wide-blade composite props" for airboats? If so, then you've come to the right place. Water Walker Props, Inc. offers high quality, high-performance composite airboat propellers .
Our propellers maximize thrust, while minimizing RPM. If you're interested in optimizing the performance of your airboat, reducing wear & tear on your engine, & reducing noise, come in and have a look around.
Serious Performance & Endurance for Serious Airboats
From Your Engine To The Air:
Have you ever really thought about how an airboat generates and delivers thrust? There is much more to it than a strong engine. Yet some airboaters treat the propeller as little more than an afterthought. Quite a bit of time, effort, and money go into specifying a state-of-the-art airboat. All too often, engine performance, maximum torque, and other power plant concerns overshadow how horsepower is transferred from the engine to the air. An inefficient propeller wastes coveted horsepower. Consequently, the boat might not realize the top performance possible with a modern, state-of-the-art, wide-blade composite propeller.
Airboats are driven by air. Great volumes of air must be “captured” and thrown rearward at speeds above hurricane-force. The art of propeller design includes planform shape, airfoil shape, disc diameter, pitch distribution, and, most importantly, the material and structural integrity to withstand the huge centrifugal forces involved. Water Walker has fashioned its hollow combination of carbon and fiberglass composites into a shape almost perfect for the task.
Serious airboaters ask a lot of their airboats. Many of our customers depend on their airboats for their livelihoods. Others have gone to great lengths to specify and build the best recreational airboat they can. In either case, these customers have been willing to spend more on their airboat propellers. Considering that the propeller is the most important element of any airboat, it's a worthwhile investment to make.
High performance doesn't have to give up high-efficiency. Water Walker propellers for airboats are designed to give excellent thrust at low RPM, with low weight, for quick spin-up and safety. At lower RPM levels, the engine doesn't have to burn as much fuel. There's less acoustic shock, and less noise. Considering that these advanced wide-blade composite airboat propellers deliver better thrust, for less fuel burn, while lasting much longer than a wood propeller, they're actually less expensive in the long run, than wood propellers. They take a lot more punishment, too. The composite materials used in our blades have been known to outlast the stainless steel leading edges. Take a look at some of the abuse these propellers have survived, without catastrophic failure. You'll wonder how you can afford to stay with wood.
