Signature Propellers of Santa Ana, Calif., is looking for dealers for its new Four By 4 propellers. “We’ll be at the IBEX show and at METS,” company founder and owner Chad Hill says.


Designed for use with MerCruiser’s Bravo Three sterndrive, the Four By 4’s counter-rotating stainless-steel propellers can reduce planing time and increase top end, he says. Available in a half-dozen pitch sizes (18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28 inches), the Four By 4 consists of a cupped aft propeller and solid hubs. The forward and aft propellers are 15.5 inches and 14.5 inches in diameter, respectively. The propellers are also compatible with Yanmar’s ZT350 sterndrives.

In addition, the company has begun to offer a separate set of props for Volvo Penta drives with Duoprop installations, Hill says. Retail price is $647 per propeller. Contact: Signature Propellers, (714) 855-2986.
