The Autoprop Eco*Star
Perfect propulsion for hybrid and solar powered vessels.
The Autoprop is already propelling many hybrid or solar powered vessels around the world, the Solar Sailor and the Gloriana, seen above, being just two of them. Even though Autoprop was selected for these vessels and delivers better performance than any other propeller could achieve, the particular requirements of electrically driven vessels have led us to undertake three years of research, design and development as part of the Hymar project. The result is a remarkable propeller we have called the Autoprop Eco*Star.
Whatever type of vessel you may already own or be thinking of buying, be it leisure or commercial, if it is hybrid or solar powered the Eco*Star is the right propeller for your vessel. Actually we can go further than that! One of the ‘spin offs’ from our research, and the subsequent final design, is that diesel powered displacement vessels will also see quite dramatic reductions in fuel consumption, but with better performance, after fitting an Eco*Star.
We will be adding much more information about the Eco*Star to this website in the near future. In the meantime please click the image below to download the propeller's brochure.
