Sport fishing boats have evolved into sophisticated high-powered, high-performance craft with a series of demanding requirements from the propellers. High acceleration and high maximum speeds are required to beat the fleet to the fishing grounds at the start of the day, and then race back to the club for weigh-in, so that actual fishing time is maximised.

The high thrust generated to achieve this must be delivered smoothly and quietly. While trolling on the grounds, the wake must be clean and quiet to lure in the prize. The propellers must be strong enough in reverse to handle aggressive backing down to land a trophy fish on minimum line size. VEEM is passionate about the design and manufacture of dedicated sport fishing propellers that excel in each of these areas.

VEEM Advantages


Industry-leading geometric accuracy and high-strength materials allow VEEM propellers to achieve high speeds in excess of 50 knots with little to no signs of cavitation erosion on the blades. VEEM provides a unique, fully customized bespoke design for every VEEMSportfish propeller. This is made possible by the VEEM patented, pattern-less molding and 100% CNC machining of the complete blade area and boss. Because we do not use physical patterns, our propeller design specialists are free to specify a propeller design that is precisely tailored to each customers’ requirements. This guarantees the highest performance for each project.


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 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.

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.
