Prop Protector Australia is the importer of quality tested propeller & stern gear products which increase safety and decrease maintenance & repair costs.
Designed to protect your vessel from getting caught up in rope or weed leading to loss of propulsion and steerage or damage to seals and bearings.
Every Prop protector comes with a 5 YEAR GUARANTEE against faulty materials or workmanship.
The Prop Protector is a simple shaft driven rope and debris cutter rotating with the shaft to instantly cut any rope, weed or debris picked up and snagged by the propeller.
Manufactured from high grade (316) Stainless Steel and installed within minutes, the Prop Protector sits on the shaft, between the propeller hub and the stern bearing, waiting to cut anything that threatens to entangle it.
There are no moving parts to fail - just a razor sharp marine grade stainless steel blade - ready to slice through most marine debris.

The Down Under Rally offers cruising yacht rallies to and from Australia, New Caledonia, Vanuatu and Fiji. The rally organisers are John and Leanne Hembrow who have been full time cruisers since 2009 and since leaving Brisbane have notched up 45,000 ocean miles. They run 7 different rallies that focus on providing support for participants whilst at sea and onshore by sharing their extensive knowledge about sailing to, arriving at and cruising in these destinations.
John and Leanne advise all of their rally participants to consider purchasing a rope cutter to fit around their prop shafts forward of the propeller to protect their vessels from being caught up in discarded ropes, fishing nets or crab pots. They have seen first hand the damage that can be caused when ropes get entangled in the propeller and have provided some personal accounts on their rally website.
