- Commercial & Superyacht
Have you included Propspeed on your refit season checklist this year? As the Northern Hemisphere slowly heads into a sunny Summer, boatyards are rushed off their feet by eager boat owners preparing for a summer out on the water. Propspeed works with a
number of gold-standard boatyards and applicators around the world, and they explained why Propspeed should be an essential on your to-do list this year!
Frank & Jimmies Propeller
Founded in 1947, Frank & Jimmies Propeller is one of the largest propeller shops in the USA. Frank & Jimmies Propeller manufacture, distribute, and repair running gear for vessels ranging from small outboard run-abouts to 120-foot superyachts.
“We love Propspeed, it’s great. We have all of our customers ask for it by name and they love it. Anyone who uses it once uses it again. We’ve been applying Propspeed here since the start. As soon as it came onto the market, we were testers of it and we began using it. We saw great success and have repeat customers who continue to ask for it. A lot of the feedback comes from our divers because our divers are the ones that are servicing the boats, and it makes their lives a lot easier when it comes to cleaning the props or the running gear. They can take their hand and rub any growth off, versus having to scrape anything off the actual bare metal”
"We only use Propspeed for our running gear. We feel that Propspeed works so well that we have not even bothered to try any of the competing products. ‘If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.’ The sales and technical support from the Propspeed team in South Florida is amazing. The Propspeed team has trained our crew on the proper techniques to apply Propspeed. Our customers continually say how beautiful the application is and how well the product works."

“We first did a test of Propspeed on a Sea Ray SDX 270. From the first try, we reached 35.5 knots, gaining 3 knots at 5120 RPM. Before Propspeed, we had never reached this speed. We now offer Propspeed to all of our customers. This allows us to offer an innovative solution and our ustomers are very satisfied.”
“Teignbridge customers often request Propspeed for boats operating in areas of high marine growth and we are happy to recommend Propspeed to customers seeking guidance for a product to keep our propellers and shaft lines growth free. Using Propspeed and keeping the underwater gear free of growth will ensure that our products will continue to perform efficiently”
“Steber International have been applying Propspeed to both commercial and recreational boats since 2007. All staff, including apprentices, are trained in the correct application of the product. We have always found the product easy and safe to use. As a major manufacturer of vessels based on the Mid North Coast of NSW we are also a re-seller for Propspeed.”
