Trawlers and work boats require a propeller that offers maximum thrust, smoothness and maneuverability, whilst offering maximum fuel economy. VEEM’s primary focus is to design propellers with high efficiency. High propeller efficiency translates to improved fuel economy and increased vessel speed. For many vessels, the saving in fuel consumption over one to two years will pay for the cost of a new propeller.

VEEM offer many designs suitable to the fishing and work boat industry which ensures that the optimal solution for each vessel is available. For trawlers, pusher boats, and tugs with nozzles, VEEM offer traditional designs such as the VEEMKaplan, however the VEEMSkewplan design offers the ultimate in thrust, smoothness and efficiency. Low speed work boats without nozzles fitted benefit from VEEMStar designs providing excellent thrust and manoeuvrability.

VEEM Advantages

STRONGER PROPELLERS

VEEM Propellers are one of the only manufacturers in the world that undertake all metal alloying in house, unlike other manufacturers that traditionally use pre-alloyed metals from external suppliers. Through extensive research and development, VEEM has been able to fine tune chemical compositions of alloys to achieve the highest quality, most reputable material, the highest level of corrosion resistance and the highest strength.

FUEL EFFICIENCY / ECONOMY

The propulsive efficiency of VEEM propellers is second to none. The freedom our designers enjoy due to VEEM’s proprietary integrated design and manufacturing processes allows the delicate balance of maximum thrust with minimum losses to be carefully and thoroughly considered for every propeller.  Bespoke sections, pitch distribution, profile, skew and tip geometry treatments combine to produce ultra-high efficiency propellers.

HARD BACK-DOWN

VEEM are one of the only manufacturers in the world that undertake all metal alloying in house, unlike other manufacturers that traditionally use pre-alloyed metals from external suppliers. VEEM’s high-strength alloys and advanced propeller geometry, developed using CFD and FEA analysis, mean their propellers have better back-down performance than any other on the market.

VEEM Interceptor™ Technology

VEEM Interceptor™ fitted propellers are at the forefront of fixed pitch propeller technology around the world, allowing users to ‘Splash and Forget™’ their boats by providing adjustments to the relative pitch of their installed propellers without having to lift the boat from the water.

A VEEM Interceptor™ propeller features a ‘dove-tail’ groove on the blade tip of the propeller and an entry point for an Interceptor™ pitch strip.
Interceptor™ strips come in different heights and shapes, adjusting the relative pitch of each propeller blade and in turn, changing its performance.
