Van der Velden® MASTER Rudder

Characterised by its trailing edge in the shape of a fishtail, the Van der Velden® MASTER rudder offers a very good manoeuvring performance, long lifespan and low maintenance.

The design of the Van der Velden® MASTER rudder can be optimised to suit a wide range of vessels and can also be delivered with Van der Velden's innovative Asymmetric Rudder Technology.
