The Project Disruption concept allows shaftline boat builders to harness the benefits of contra-rotating propellers, including increased efficiency, acceleration and reverse authority. The concept changes all of the pre-established constraints of trying to optimize propeller diameter with gear ratio. The concept, intended to interface with a standard ZF marine transmission, is comprised of a strut-housed underwater gearbox which transmits power to two contra-rotating propellers.

Positioning your boat over that perfect spot is key to a successful day on the water. Off the mark by just a few feet, miss the bite. ZF’s iDrift™ technology takes control of your sportfishing yacht to the next level, allowing you to set the optimal drift plan. iDrift™ can control your drift speed and direction in windy conditions and/or active current – all while maintaining the bow’s heading. ZF gives you superior control while kite fishing, bottom fishing, or wreck fishing… if you catch our drift.
