Q-Marine new Q-SPD Surface Drives

by Diesel International 27 Feb 01:20 PST

Q-Marine International recently anounced a complete redesign of the original Q-SPD Systems incorporating the same construct as the original SD series plus many refinements.

In particular in function, form and performance. Q-SPD Surface Drives help to negate the issues that come with trimmable surface drives. So, there is no need to worry about getting the trim right, over loading the engine, or having hydraulics and more components where the chances of something going wrong are greater.

The result of this redesign is a fully integrated propulsion solution with high longevity and that requires the least possible maintenance. Q-SPD's construction is largely composite, the main housings comes from e-glass and carbon-fibre then it goes through a process of reinforcement in an epoxy matrix, using resin infusion manufacturing techniques.
