The ServoProp is a unique patented propeller pitch adjustment mechanism that provides equal thrust in both forward and reverse.  The automatic variable pitch sail drive adjusts the pitch of the propeller blades automatically so that the power generation and power output are optimal. The power generated can be used to power (itself) and all the electronics on board without the need to have a separate generator. It is suitable as a propulsion motor for monohulls between up to 50 ft & multihulls up to 60 ft. It can also be used as a hydro generator in boats up to 100 ft.
