The neighbor’s vessel
It all started as a hobby. Leif Magnus Endresens neighbor wanted to change the stern drive of his boat, and asked Leif Magnus to draw a sketch for a V-drive. The vessel got a new V-drive and controllable pitch propellers, and was tested in the summer of 1973. It reached 25 knots, which was much better compared to vessels with the same engine output. The acceleration and maneuvering was also significantly better than with fixed propeller systems.
“The results convinced us that we had a product that there could well be a market for” – Leif Magnus Endresen, founder of Servogear AS.
