The Van der Velden® MASTER rudder offers a long life-span and low maintenance. The absence of moving parts makes it a great option for vessels operating in shallow waters, while the combination of a 70º rudder angle with upper and lower endplates allows for a high lift. This design can be optimised to suit a wide range of vessels.
Characterised by its fishtail shaped trailing edge, the Van der Velden® MASTER rudder offers very good manoeuvring performance and smooth course keeping. Manoeuvrability is made even more efficient by the remarkable use of the propeller slipstream. The Van der Velden® MASTER rudder is also available in ART MASTER design
