Makai has partnered with Q-Marine to offer a unique propulsion solution that when paired with Makais innovative hull design will both improve performance and fuel efficiency whilst at the same time reducing maintenance costs and improving reliability. Despite Q-SPD’s simple and clean appearance the innovative design puts all vulnerable components inboard away from the elements. With less moving parts there is naturally less to go wrong, guaranteeing reliability and longevity.
Improved Fuel Efficiency
Anyone who has owned a z-drive will know that to keep them running smoothly for years and years to come will require regular service and maintenance. This is essential to their ongoing performance. The QSPD surface drive on the other hand requires minimal maintenance and boasts military grade reliability. It achieves such reliability simply by using high tech materials and through simple design, in fact with the QSPD surface drive you should expect reliability equal to or greater than traditional shaft drive.
"we consistently see 15% to 18% better performance out of a 30-knot boat by using surface drives" - Leigh Michau, Founder of Q-SPD Surface Drives
