Teignbridge recently supplied to Guayaquil, Ecuador two 22.5m monohull crewboats featuring modern styling combined with a robust and simple-to-build structure. Propulsion is provided by two Cummins QSK19 marine engines rated at 750 bhp at 1,800 rpm driving a pair of Teignbridge 38” x 5 blade high performance C – Foil fixed pitch NiBrAl propellers.
Independent assessments at both Plymouth and Newcastle Universities showed the C-Foil produced up to 5% more thrust and efficiency when compared to a standard propeller design.
Teignbridge are proud to be providing their highly efficient sterngear equipment to these innovative vessels, including shaftlines in stainless steel Temet 25, which is a high strength duplex stainless steel alloy with excellent crevice corrosion resistance. Teignbridge also supplied sets of stainless steel fabricated rudders.
