[ended] BRUNTONS PROPELLERS GIVEAWAY

At Cruisers Forum we are pleased to offer members the occasional Vendor Giveaway Prize, which we hope will help our members learn about the sponsors who support our community. Our goal is to create ways for members to engage with our sponsors, earning a chance to win a prize donated by the sponsor. We feel this will provide the sponsor a unique opportunity to embrace our laser focused audience and provide our amazing members an easy and free way to win some gear!

A special thanks to BRUNTONS PROPELLERS for providing the prizes for our latest Giveaway:


PRIZE: 1 lucky winner will receive a $500 discount towards either an Autoprop or Varifold propeller.


Sponsor Information:




At Bruntons we have no need to try and sell you a particular type of propeller. Why? Because we make every type and can therefore supply you with exactly the right propeller for your vessel. If you are not sure which type would be right for your craft please contact us; we will be happy to help.
  • Autoprop. For cruising yachts. The auto pitching Autoprop provides highly efficient motoring and motor sailing requiring lower revs and therefore using less fuel, while still feathering for less drag when sailing. So efficient is the Autoprop when motoring that some displacement motor vessels are now fitting them.
  • Autoprop EcoStar. For electrically driven craft. The result of many months of research and development the EcoStar provides all the benefits of the Autoprop together with solutions for the unique requirements of electrically driven vessels.
  • Varifold. For cruiser racer and racing yachts. Fitted as standard by many quality yacht builders around the world Varifolds unique design provides the vessel to which it is fitted with the best of both worlds: a folding propeller that combines low drag when sailing with efficient and quiet power when motoring – and they always open in reverse!

I’d love an auto prop if it’ll fit in the apeture!

A three blade varifold would be sweet. I'm shopping for a new boat and amazed that almost everything I look at has a fixed blade prop. Go figure.

Wow! Would love to replace my pitted 19" fixed prop with a autoprop on my new (to me) Beneteau 473 (2005).

Already have an AutoProp on my Catalina 470, best prop I've ever sailed with. A SigmaDrive would be a fantastic complement to it!

A sigma drive sounds like a real addition that would eliminate prop vibration
