VEEM supplies many of the worlds’ leading ferry builders, providing both product and engineering design solutions. Propellers, shaft-lines, and ride control are all available as part of a package. A package solution from VEEM ensures component compatibility, accurate assembly and operational simplicity. VEEM can supply shaft-line components to suit any vessel size, giving ferry builders a one-stop-shop for propulsion systems.

Propellers for this market require customized designs to ensure maximum performance. Base propeller designs suitable to conventional ferry applications are created from the VEEMStar-C. This design operates successfully on ferries constructed by prominent builders around the world.

VEEM Advantages

FUEL EFFICIENCY AND 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.

MINIMUM VIBRATION

VEEM’s patented, pattern-less molding technology and 5-axis, 100% complete CNC machining ensures industry leading geometric accuracy of the propeller, hub and root sections. The resulting perfect foil sections, and elimination of any imperfections in the fairness of the blades and boss lead to significantly quieter and smoother delivery of thrust. This accuracy and fairness delays the onset of cavitation, reduces its severity, and ensures that it is stable. The speeds achievable have climbed into the previously inconceivable 50 knot plus range.

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.

More about the VEEMStar Series

VEEMStar Series

The VEEM Star propeller design has been developed as a high performance propeller for use on medium speed applications. As an “all round” propeller, it is ideal for use on pleasure and commercial applications where performance and smoothness are of particular importance. The VEEMStar achieves this with outstanding blade cavitation control, which results in increased efficiency and smoothness.
