Michigan Wheel offers a broad range of propellers for almost any type of pleasure boat. Our high quality products are made with certified virgin ingot metals. That means no scrap and more consistent, durable propellers, most of which we make right here in the USA. Our time-tested designs come in many sizes and variations so recreational boat users can find the exact piece they need, knowing it has passed our formal quality process. We dimensionally inspect every propeller we build using the latest electronic measurement equipment.

We work closely with boat builders and designers to understand what boat owners need. From ten to eighty inches, our recreational propellers can be hand finished or fully CNC machine finished. The research and development we’ve done related to underwater propulsion systems results in efficiency, speed, and durability for boat owners and operators who choose Michigan Wheel.

Below you can find a list of our recreational propellers grouped by application.  Keep in mind that these are just recommendations and that every boat is different - not every possible propeller is listed under each application.

The Marlin series is the result of a major R & D program undertaken with Maritime Research Associates LLC (MRA), MTU Detroit Diesel, and the Maritime Research Institute of the Netherlands (MARIN). The series is specifically designed for sportfish and sportcruiser models that are capable of speeds above 40 knots.

This series is primarily for new construction, involving Michigan Wheel at design. 4 blade Marlins will range from 0.83 to 0.90 E.A.R., and 5 blade Marlins will range from 0.90 to 1.05 E.A.R.

The Marlin series design features variable pitch, camber, skew, and a degree of rake. All Marlin propellers are fully CNC machine finished to high tolerance. The purpose of the series, beyond optimizing performance, is to manage cavitation.

The Federal CX Series is the best possible choice for propeller performance for recreational boats. Michigan Wheel naval architects can design a custom propeller for your specific application. Using vessel data and performance targets provided by the customer, a propeller with the optimum combination of diameter, pitch, blade count, blade area, camber, and chord distribution is designed to maximize the performance of each vessel that is evaluated. Maximum performance is not just better top speed; it is a better cruise speed, better acceleration, improved fuel economy, and smoother, quieter operation.

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 recreational boating, particularly on sportfish, high speed cruisers, and yachts.

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.
