Sharrow Marine in St. Clair Shores has selected Yamaha Marine Precision Propellers (YPPI) in Indiana to manufacture and distribute Sharrow’s novel propellers.

Terms of the agreement allow YPPI to cast Sharrow Marine’s propellers in its foundry in Greenfield, Ind. Yamaha also will offer Sharrow Propellers through its boat builder and dealer distribution channels.

Sharrow Marine won an NMMA Innovation Award during the 2020 Miami International Boat Show for the Sharrow Propeller. Recognized for its original design, the Sharrow Propeller offers improvements in fuel efficiency and boat performance.

“Yamaha has world-wide respect for the quality and dependability of its products,” says Greg Sharrow, CEO of Sharrow Marine. “We’re proud to have the opportunity to have YPPI cast our high-tech propellers in YPPI’s new, state-of-the-art casting facility in Indiana. We’re also excited to have access to the Yamaha distribution network, which will dramatically accelerate our efforts to deliver the Sharrow Propeller to boat motors across the world.”

Yamaha also will offer the Sharrow Propeller as a new option to more than 100 of the world’s leading boat builders and its network of more than 2,000 dealers. The Sharrow propellers will have unique SKU numbers for Yamaha dealers to easily order for their customers, according to Yamaha.

“Sharrow Marine’s choice of YPPI as a manufacturing and distribution partner underscores Yamaha’s leadership position in the casting industry,” says Jonathon Burns, general manager for Yamaha U.S. Marine Planning and Development. “Through YPPI and our new relationship with Sharrow Marine, Yamaha can offer boat builders, dealers, and customers an even greater number of options when it comes to maximizing boat performance through propeller selection.”
