Autoprop Testimonials

Nothing tells a products story better than owner's own experiences and with Autoprop the message is one of satisfaction in every department: performance under sail, performance motor sailing, performance motoring, build quality and strength, and in our new green world, economy.

One of Autoprops earliest and greatest supporters is Sir Chay Blyth who, in the '90's' fitted all of his BT Challenge yachts with Autoprops. He summed up his Autoprop experience saying, "I can highly recommend Autoprop propellers to all sail boat owners who want the very best performance under power and sail."

On this page we have selected just a few of the many messages we've been sent by owners explaining why Autoprops provide all the benefits in the first paragraph and more. They also reflect the vast range of craft, from traditional wooden yachts to fast modern catamarans, that have all hugely benefited from fitting the unique Autoprop.
