SwimGuard– Standard (Patented)
A "Propeller Guard" That Works!!
For more than a decade, Maritech Industries has supplied all segments of the boating community with the most effective propeller guard ever designed for human protection. The SwimGuard is the only propeller guard that offers 360-degree “full cage” propeller encasement, thus providing swimmers the surest form of protection from a boat’s propeller.
USCG’s Boating Accident Reporting Database (BARD) continually shows a significant amount of propeller strike injuries and fatalities that occur in numerous ways. This data includes occupants falling from the front of a moving boat, while moving from boat-to-boat, while swimming near the back of the boat, or simply getting in or out of the water via the boarding ladder. The SwimGuard’s unique design will provide maximum propeller protection from all of these scenarios.
Originally designed for non-performance applications, the SwimGuard can be utilized on most any boat and will not compromise the normal and safe operation of your vessel. In fact, at speeds of 10 mph or less, you won’t even know it there. Of course, as speed is increased, there will be a loss on top end speed. We make everyone aware of this to ensure customer satisfaction. If the SwimGuard doesn’t meet your propeller safety needs, maybe one of our other products will.
Every guard is custom built to the specifications of the lower unit ensuring a durable, low-profile look. Easy to install, the SwimGuard comprised of three main components: the front screen, main basket and the mounting harness. The patented mounting harness eliminates the need to drill mounting holes, maintaining the motor’s warranty. Once the mounting harness is in place, secure the remaining parts and you’re ready to go. It’s that simple. The SwimGuard may be the only propeller guard that can be installed without pulling your boat out of the water.
If your desire is to offer friends, family and loved ones the highest level of propeller safety, then the SwimGuard is for you.
Recently, wake surfing enthusiasts are accepting SwimGuard as an effective system for propeller safety.
SwimGuard – Pro
The SwimGuard Pro is a modified version of the SwimGuard. Originally designed for those who are only concerned with “core” protection, not hands, feet, etc. This version does not provide the level of protection as the SwimGuard. However, it does allow you to maintain a higher level of top end speed. Many water rescue professionals have stated “it’s a nice balance of propeller safety, while maintaining as much top end as possible.”
Over the years, The SwimGuard and SwimGuard Pro have gained the respect of industry and our customers alike. Our propeller guards have become very popular and are currently employed by a variety of organizations, which include: pleasure & recreational, military& para-military, rescue agencies and movie production, just to name a few.
