RHC Props - Reverse Hook Cup technology

Traditional propellers are designed with forward momentum in mind, where as heavy boats like barges, work boats, pontoon boats and houseboats require added performance in areas of handling, stopping, and reversibility. A common factor amongst these boats is their increased windage or their much larger superstructures, so naturally the technological benefits of a reverse hook cup propeller are immense and immediately felt.

Unique Houseboat Props Boat Propellers

These uniquely designed props are becoming very popular because they provide up to a 200% increase in both stopping the forward momentum, and far superior performance with the ever important reverse thrust. The benefits and performance factors are realized not just out on the open water but also in tight quarters like docking, small marinas, and in controlling the boat in snug crowded maneuvers.

Heavy Boats - high thrust and large diameter

Choosing the right propeller for your boat is of major importance as it is the sole biggest performance item that affects fuel efficiency, safety, propulsion, and of course the ever important handling and control.

Both Directions - stop faster, reverse better

Since the leading and trailing edges are cupped to different degrees, the performance enhancements are felt both in forward and reverse. Who couldn't use faster stopping, and better reversibility?
