SeaProp 60

The Beta Marine replacement engine and saildrive solution comprises of an appropriate new engine of choice fitted with a shallow sump mated to a Technodrive SeaProp 60 saildrive. Which when used in combination with our special feet option will drop into your existing Volvo or Yanmar saildrive GRP moulding.

Note: Replacing a Bukh saildrive leg will require the fitting of the Beta Marine optional GRP moulding as direct replacement to the existing mould.

The SeaProp 60 can accommodate a clockwise or anti-clockwise output rotation and is available in a reduction ratio of 2.15:1 or 2.38:1. Additionally, should your vessels hull design require it, the saildrive leg can be turned through 180 degrees so that the engine is directly over the propeller.

The Engine and SeaProp 60 package includes engine with shallow sump, housing to mate with the Seaprop 60 mounting bracket, through the hull fitting twin diaphragm seal and engine fresh water cooling valve. The transmission main structure is made of die-cast aluminium alloy, hardened and treated against corrosion. Additional protection against galvanic corrosion is guaranteed by sacrificial zinc anodes. The Engine and Seaprop 60 are not mated at the factory and shipped together, independently packed.
