Michigan Wheel standard series propellers for pleasure and commercial boats have been the industry standard for 108 years, evolving with the markets to remain relevant. Tried and true 3 blade Dyna-Jet and 4 blade Dyna-Quad pleasure boat propellers are legend and have been enhanced with the addition of the CNC machine finished DJX and DQX for higher speed boats. 5 blade propellers have gained popularity, and Michigan Wheel Marine’s M-500 meets that demand. The Michigan “M” Series is globally sourced to give the Michigan line a highly competitive offering for the global market.
0.61 E.A.R. - Diameter range: 12" - 21"
The DJX is an evolution of the tried and true Dyna-Jet series of propellers. The design has been modified with increased blade area, refined blade chord distributions, and optimized blade section geometry to be better suited for highly loaded, limited tip clearance applications. All "X" Series propellers are CNC machined to facilitate very accurate and repeatable product and are perfect for boaters who want to maximize their boat's performance.
0.56 E.A.R. - Diameter range: 9" - 46"
The 3-blade Dyna-Jet is the most popular propeller in the world for moderate size boats, generally through 40'. The Dyna-Jet provides outstanding speed and performance for pleasure craft and fishing boats needing to get to their destination quickly. Each Dyna-Jet propeller is carefully hand crafted and inspected to meet today's performance demands. When using NiBrAl material, a cupped trailing edge is available to maximize thrust and minimize vibration in highly loaded conditions.
0.69 E.A.R. - Diameter range: 19" - 46"
Like the Dyna-Jet, the four blade Dyna-Quad is one of the most popular propellers in the world. The extra blade blade is advantageous for applications with increased thrust, constrained diameter, and/or noise and vibration concerns. The Dyna-Quad provides excellent performance, durability, and smoothness, making it a great choice for a wide range of recreational and commercial boats.
0.86 E.A.R. - Diameter range" 22" - 44"
The M-500 is selected by many operators for new boat construction, re-powers, and propeller upgrades. When compared the Dyna-Quad, the extra blade and additional blade area provides potential for increased thrust without increasing propeller diameter, which may be impossible due to clearance considerations. The M-500 is the top choice on installations where heavy vee-struts or other hull appendages affect inflow, where a propeller with a lower blade number could produce significant vibration due to the inflow variations. The M-500 can also reduce noise and vibration in situations with tight tip clearance. The M-500 provides exceptional durability with performance approaching a custom propeller at the cost of a standard series propeller. It is these characteristics that make the M-500 an increasingly popular choice in both recreational and commercial boating.
This series is globally sourced as the economically advantageous standard series propeller line. The “M” are manufactured to Michigan Wheel Marine tolerance and hub dimensional standards. The material used in manufacture is certifiable to ABS type 2 in manganese bronze, and to ABS in NiBrAl. Hale MRI computerized inspection equipment is utilized in manufacturing and final inspection.
0.56 E.A.R. - Diameter range: 9" - 40"
For smaller inboard craft, the 3 blade DJ355 offers the best value for smooth, reliable, and quiet performance. This skewed, constant pitch, zero offset series meets the performance design criteria of a wide range of applications and is a good alternative to the Michigan Dyna-Jet.
0.70 E.A.R. - Diameter range: 9" - 40"
The four blade DQ469 uses the same blade design as the DJ355. The fourth blade provides additional thrust in diameter constrained applications and can help minimize noise and vibration. Like the DJ355, the DQ469 provides good value for smooth, reliable, and quiet performance and can be considered an alternative to the Michigan Dyna-Quad.
0.86 E.A.R. - Diameter range: 17" - 44"
The 4 blade DQ486 comes into consideration when there is requirement for more blade area than offered by the DQ469, due to loading or diameter restiction. The increased skew also helps minimize noise and vibration in situations with limited tip clearance. The DQ486 can be considered an alternative to the Michigan DQX or the Federal HX-400.
1.06 E.A.R. - Diameter range: 22" - 46"
The 5 blade M-506 is intended for highly loaded applications with very tight diameter constraints. Typically, more blade count will contribute to smooth and quiet operation. The 21 degree skew is ideal for tunnel installations. In pronounced keel applications, the 5 blades in rotation will break the synchronization of 4 blades, and thereby reduce vibration.
Michigan has a wide variety of propeller styles available to get the most out of your sailboat while under power or under sail. Our 2 blade and 3 blade fixed pitch propeller series for sailboats are available in diameters of 10” through 24”, in a wide range of pitch. Custom sizes are also possible. The typical material is Manganese Bronze Michalloy K, although NiBrAl Michalloy XX material is also available. This series of propellers may be machined to fit a full range of metric standards as well as SAE standard taper shafts.

Our Sailer fixed pitch propellers are very popular among sailboaters. The 2 bladed Sailer fixed pitch propeller is the best choice for sailboaters seeking to maximize sailing speed. It offers minimum drag while under sail and the power to get you where you're going when the wind stops blowing. The 3 bladed Sailer is the propeller of choice for cruising sailboats. It offers superior dock handling maneuverability and the power to maintain speed in wind and waves when the weather gets nasty with a minimum increase in drag under sail.
2 Blade Weedless A-C, W-C, H-D are designed for efficient, durable performance in weed-infested waters. All 2 Blade Weedless propellers are available in NiBrAl or Manganese Bronze.
The A-C series is primarily for smaller air-cooled inboard engines. Diameters range from 6" to 10" with straight bores.
The W-C series offer heavier blades and a larger hub for water cooled engines. Diameters range from 6" to 10" with tapered bores.
The Weedless H-D series (heavy duty) is designed for maximum strength and durability in weed infested waters. It is designed to take on the heaviest of weeds. Diameters range from 10" to 16", with standard taper bores.
Ambush - 4 Blade
The Ambush is specifically designed for ski and towboats, which typically have very high power requirements in a diameter-constrained environment. The Ambush design maximizes blade area and skew to produce the required thrust and maintain a smooth ride.

Dyna-Jet Cupped - 3 Blade
The Dyna-Jet Cupped is designed for high-power fast bottom boats. These propellers are made of a NiBrAl (Nickel, Bronze, Aluminum) alloy which provides extra strength, less flex, and greater durability. With this model, the trailing edges of the blades are cupped for extra speed. Cupping also adds camber, maximizing thrust and minimizing cavitation erosion on the propeller.
