Sharrow Marine launches OEM Sharrow Propeller™ Boat Builder Program

OEM Sharrow Propeller

Sept 28, 2021

Sharrow Marine has announced plans to roll out an exclusive OEM Sharrow Propeller™ Boatbuilder Program using their award-winning Sharrow Propellers™. The program includes a comprehensive development package for each boatbuilder that will provide them with custom designed and custom-made Sharrow Propellers™ that enhance not just efficiency but also performance attributes that are most important to each boat builder. For example, planning speed, handling at the dock, and faster speeds at optimum cruise. The Sharrow Marine engineering team will use their proprietary design and simulation capability to optimize boat hull, motor, and propeller interactions to give each boatbuilder an advantage over their competition. The plans also include attractive incentives, and of course an optimized set of Sharrow Propellers™ for their vessels and motors.

“You can have the best motor or boat in the world, but the propeller is ultimately the device that transfers engine power and torque to the water. If you’re using an off-the-shelf cookie-cutter propeller on your motors or vessels, you are simply leaving a massive amount of performance on the table,” said Greg Sharrow, founder, and CEO of Sharrow Marine. “The optimized boat/motor/propeller package is the holy grail for the marine industry and now with the launch of our new OEM Sharrow Propeller™ Boatbuilder Program, boat builders and engine makers can obtain it,” says Sharrow.

“The simple fact is that boats with similar specs all perform about the same. But in 2022, there will be boats on the market that perform much better because they will be equipped with optimized Sharrow Propellers. For boat owners interested in peak performance and the latest technology, the Sharrow Propellers will offer a superior upgrade,” says Sharrow.

The Sharrow Propeller™ has undergone extensive third-party testing, including independent testing by Advantages cited by and others of the new Sharrow Propeller™ include:

· More command of the vessel when docking
