[ENDED] BRUNTONS PROPELLERS GIVEAWAY - ends Oct 26th

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 toward any of Bruntons propulsion products; Autoprop or Varifold propeller, or a SigmaDrive anti-noise and vibration coupling.


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. Our most popular products are:-
  • 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!
  • SigmaDrive. In addition to propellers the SigmaDrive is for sailing and motor yachts looking to reduce noise and vibration. With models available for virtually any type of craft, motor or sail, the SigmaDrive is our easily fitted, award winning, 21st century solution to noise and vibration problems.
If what you are looking for is not listed above go to the Products section on our website and you will find our full range.

To enter, simply do the following:
  1. Visit the site Bruntons Propellers
  2. Select a product you would like to own or think would be an awesome addition to your boat!
  3. Copy the URL of that item from the Bruntons Propellers Website (the web address at top of your browser) and paste the URL into a post in this thread/discussion.
  4. Include a few words in your entry post about why you would like to own that item and how you might use it.

That's all you have to do, BUT you must do both things.

  7. No purchase is required to enter.
  8. We will announce the winner at the end of the thread and close it again.
  9. Members who break the rules will be disqualified!

This is an easy one - Starting a circumnavigation as soon as borders open and I need a new prop.

Re: BRUNTONS PROPELLERS GIVEAWAY - ends Oct 26th

I would like to breathe new life into my 42 year-old Newport 30 with a fine Auto-Prop from Brunton's. This would enable me to begin cruising the Bahamas and the Keys at a more efficient speed motoring and especially under sail.

Re: BRUNTONS PROPELLERS GIVEAWAY - ends Oct 26th

I already have an Autoprop and it was the best upgrade I ever did to my boat. When a sailboat is coming into a gas dock with other boats there and you stop on a dime and lay it right on the dock, every one's jaw is open. It's the best. Motor sailing is perfect with the autoprop because of the pitch adjustment in 5 or 6 knots of wind I can usually hit hull speed at 12~1400 rpm. Nice to be able to keep moving at hulls speed!

I'll take a 13" H20 AUTOPROP for a 25mm shaft; perfect for me 28' refit and re-engine project. (I'll have to let you know the taper when I get the voucher and place my order ;-)

What a difference it will make!!

i am busy renovating my Cheoy lee 44 and to be able to replace the standard prop with an autoprop, this would improve many aspects of the boat.
