About Volvo Penta DuoProps

Volvo Penta DuoProps have a front and rear propeller that rotate back to back on the same drive. The front propeller is closest to the boat and hits the water first.

DuoProps have both a counter and standard rotation prop to eliminate steering torque. The front prop is always counter rotation. The rear prop is always standard rotation.

Volvo Penta DuoProps are each stamped with a size code (D2, F5, T9, etc) that is used to find a prop replacement. With this code you can replace either the front or rear pieces, or the complete DuoProp.

Aluminum vs. Stainless Steel Props


Aluminum props are a great choice for small and medium sized boats. They are inexpensive and under normal conditions can last for many years. When running your boat in an area where striking the bottom is likely, aluminum blades can flex, helping prevent damage to your engine.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel props are ideal for large or heavy boats and boats running in saltwater. Although more expensive than aluminum, stainless steel props are more durable and will last longer. When running your boat at speeds over 50 mph, stainless props will perform better than aluminum.
