While contra-rotating propellers are not a new technology, they have never been successfully used on
outboard motors until now. The DF350As dual propellers provide three key benefits, compact size, increased
stability and greater traction.
By distributing the power of the engine over six blades, instead of just three, the size of the gears and
gearcase could be kept to a minimum, which in turn allowed for the design of sleeker, more hydrodynamic
gearcase. Suzuki engineers spent many hours in computer simulation and on the water, knowing that reducing
drag underwater would be essential to improving overall boat speed and performance.
Contra-rotating propellers also provide added surface area, for more stability and increased traction or
grip underwater. (Think of the wide slicks on a drag racer as compared to typical tires.) This results in
exceptional acceleration, or hole-shot, truer directional propulsion (eliminating steering torque), better
than expected top speeds and incredible reverse thrust. Importantly, these benefits are apparent even on
heavier boats with full loads of fuel, gear and people.
