Max Prop 3 blade Classic 13" for 1" shaft

Thanks for looking. Up for grabs is this Max Prop 3 blade Classic 13" for 1" shaft, variable pitch feathering propeller. It was removed from a 30-36 ft. Catalina that was hurricane damaged... hence the cut shaft.
The prop is in very good condition and moves freely. Just needs a greasing , a new zinc and is ready to install.
I bought this for my boat but have decided to stick w/ my standard 3 blade.

I have a video of the prop feathering if needed , to show how smooth the mechanism works.

Prop will be disassembled for shipping and the shaft stub will not be included to cut down on package size and weight.

asking $ 1700. or a reasonable best offer plus shipping.

Feel free to ask any and all questions and thanks for looking!

Re: Max Prop 3 blade Classic 13" for 1" shaft

From the web:

Efficient Power

In forward the Max-Prop Classic will offer 96% of the efficiency of a fixed blade propeller of the same diameter and pitch. The 4% loss in power can usually be eliminated by precisely matching the pitch of the Max-Prop to fit the boat engine combination.

Outstanding Reverse

The Max-Prop Classic provides 80% more power in reverse than a comparable fixed blade propeller. The Classic utilizes the same leading edge in forward as it does in reverse giving the propeller the same efficiency in both directions dramatically improving control and power in reverse.

Internal Adjustable Pitch

All Max-Props have adjustable pitch settings. The Classic is adjustable in 2 degree increments. This can be done in minutes by disassembling it and reassembling it to the new configuration.

Low Drag

Under sail the Max-Prop Classic will increase sailing speed by about 15%, the largest difference being noticed when sailing in light air. When sailing with a fixed propeller the vessel has to overcome the drag propeller, installing a Max-Prop Classic reduces drag and maximizes sailing performance.

I had one of these on my old , Westsail 28 with a one cylinder Farymann Diesel. The prop worked amazingly well. I never ever felt under powered with that 13 hp diesel on such a heavy boat.
