Props

Scipperatcio,

The original aluminiums props are 16" dia X 12" pitch. This propeller also fits the Volvo saildrives. With your upgraded motors I would recommend a higher pich eg. 14". You need to contact a serious propeller vendor to have him calculate the accurate pitch, not an easy task since the accurate boat measurements are not readily accessible. You should however be careful at increasing the prop dia as this can lead to increase noise.

I have lost one of my props and bought two brand new props from a yacht slip that removes the fixed props from new monohulls and replace them with folding props. I would contact some of the yacht/motor shops in your area. For information I paid NOK2500 for the two props here in Norway.

Good luck with you hunt!

Happy lead free sailin

props

What you can do is check out Belize' for sale in the largest for sale websites like Multihull Maven, Yacht world and others. The specs indicate the motor size and you can ask them of the prop size.

As I said, depending an your use of the engine I would just buy two fixed blade 16" x 14" props. They quite cheap and will do a reasonable job!
You have to bear in mind that these standard props are in no way optimal for any yacht, they are a compromise. To get your optimal prop the Maxprop is the only way to go since no folding props fits on the Belize.

Good luck
