Yamaha turbo propellers

Yamaha Marine dealers began selling a new line of propellers for virtually any brand and size of outboard and sterndrive engine, according to the company. Yamaha owns Precision Propeller Industries. The company's Turbo propellers became available through Yamaha dealers in March. "Boaters today are more likely to buy parts and accessories for their current boat than buy a new boat and outboard," says John Rigsby, Yamaha Marine Group national sales manager.

Yamaha, which also offers its own brand of props for its outboards, purchased PPI in 2008. The Turbo line consists of more than 200 different polished stainless-steel props - including eight 4-blade and eight 3-blade families - for engines from 18- to 400 hp. Most use the Guardian Square Lok hub system. Turbo propellers are built for all market segments including bass, sterndrive, aluminum, offshore and flats boats. MSRP ranges from $259 to the $575, depending on propeller style, size and number of blades. Contact: PPI, (800) 922-9955. www.turbo-props.com
