Propellers & Sterngear


Your propeller is key to the mechanical movement of your boat. With a damaged, wrong or dirty/fouled propeller your boat will not perform as efficiently as it could. The marine engineers at Purbeck Marine can help by offering advice or pointing you in the right direction to getting it right whatever size your boat is.

Purbeck Marine, poole, dorset has all the tools and knowledge to remove most types of propellers. We have a variety of different pullers and specialist large sockets/spanners for the largest shaft nuts. Our experience in removal, resetting, assembly and installation of feathering and folding propellers means you do not need to look anywhere else for this kind of marine engineering service for your boat.

We supply bronze, stainless steel and aluminium propellers and can offer high quality propellers at very competitive prices. Most aluminium and stainless steel propellers can be ordered on a next day service to our workshop in poole, dorset if ordered before 2pm.

We also have a close working relationship with local propeller refurbishment firms who can carry out repairs, pitch adjustments and clean-up of used or new propellers.

If requested, we can also apply different antifouling systems to propellers and shafts to slow down the build-up of growth and barnacles.
