Solas Propellers: We are at your service

In the world of propeller design and manufacturing, Solas is regarded as one of the leading brands for all types of engines and boats. Founded in 1985 by Dr Solas Y.J. Lin in Taiwan, Solas has built its reputation over the years on the basis of rigorous testing, innovative designs and quality-controlled manufacturing processes.

Every propeller is obviously a critical part of any boat design and performance, a vital element in the process of translating motor power into forward propulsion. While researching through the long list of options from Mercury, Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, Johnson, Evinrude, Tohatsu,
and Volvo Penta, choosing the right propeller for any particular hull and engine combination is something of a “black art”, which must take account a host of variables such as the type of engine and size, the boat design, where it will be used and for what purpose, what sort of loads will be carried, and how they are distributed.

Most customers don’t realise that with the right propeller specification, they can achieve far stronger boating performance than what they are used to. There is also a bewildering array of different propellers on the market from which to choose, spanning different materials, types and designs. While this choice helps to ensure there is a propeller for pretty much every boating situation, it can also make the selection process much harder.

Not sure if your boat is reaching its maximum potential in performance and efficiency? Are you
running the most effective propeller for your purpose? What’s the benefit of running a stainless steel or aluminium propeller? Would you be better off using a 3-blade or 4-blade propeller? Just want that peace of mind? All these questions can be answered case-by-case. Solas distributors have dedicated teams of propeller specialists with decades of experience in propulsion to assist customers get exactly what they require with high performance Solas options!

With Solas Propellers available from both All Marine Spares ( au) for eastern states and Just Propellers WA ( for Western Australia, we are one of the best-known and most highly-regarded propeller manufacturers in the global marine industry, producing a complete range of stainless steel and aluminium propellers for all outboard/inboard applications.

Engine manufacturers invest much time and effort in finding the best propeller match for their motors. But even then, there is an element of trial and error in getting it right for every single boat. That is where Solas distributors lead the way with their Propeller Performance Guarantee in Australia, which allows boat owners to find the most suitable Solas Propeller for their boats. This guarantees the results customers expect from such a high-quality propeller.

There is a list of Solas “knock-off” products that consumers should be wary of when purchasing. Our distributors have seen horrific results and damage occur when customers have been “duped” into buying what they thought was a Solas Propeller. If ever concerned, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

With locations in both eastern and western states, Solas distributors are available to provide consultations with boat owners to ensure the perfect propeller and the best performance of your boat right away.
