VEEM Skewplan

The VEEMKaplan series is suited to nozzle applications and is extremely popular for trawlers, tugs and other vessels requiring high towing or bollard pull thrust. VEEMKaplan propellers have excellent thrust characteristics in low speed applications and have specifically designed blade tips that are unloaded to reduce tip losses, whilst avoiding cavitation erosion.
