The Sharrow Propeller™ Named “Clean Technology Transportation Solution of the Year” by CleanTech Breakthrough

Prestigious Annual Awards Program Recognizes Companies and Products Driving Innovation in the Global Clean Technology Industry

Detroit, April 10, 2024 — Sharrow Marine, the industry leader in innovative marine propulsion technology, announced today that the Sharrow Propeller™ has been named the “Clean Technology Transportation Solution of the Year” in the inaugural CleanTech Breakthrough Awards program. CleanTech Breakthrough is a leading independent market intelligence organization that evaluates and recognizes standout climate and clean technology companies, products and services around the globe in categories including solar technology, smart grid, energy management, wind energy, waste & recycling, transportation, and more. This recognition reaffirms Sharrow Marine’s commitment to revolutionizing propeller technology and advancing sustainability in transportation.

The Sharrow Propeller is recognized as the first major advancement in propeller technology since the 1830s, with a patented design that eliminates or significantly reduces tip cavitation and vortices. Rigorous third-party testing and the endorsement of thousands of satisfied customers attest to its remarkable benefits. The Sharrow Propeller offers up to an 80% reduction in noise, a smoother and more reliable boating experience, and up to 30% improvement in fuel efficiency compared to standard propellers. These advantages enhance the boating experience and significantly reduce each boat's carbon footprint and impact on marine life.

“The Sharrow Propeller is a groundbreaking leap in propeller technology, addressing long-standing inefficiencies in traditional designs. Designing and building sustainable technology within the maritime industry is essential for reducing environmental impact and protecting our oceans and waterways. Even small efficiency gains make a significant difference for consumers and the impacts on marine life,” said Bryan Vaughn, Managing Director of CleanTech Breakthrough Awards. “The dramatically reduced fuel consumption and environmental impact are compelling and crucial aspects of this technology for boats and beyond.”

The mission of the annual CleanTech Breakthrough Awards program is to conduct the industry’s most comprehensive analysis and evaluation of the top technology companies, solutions, and products in the climate and clean technology industry today. This year’s program attracted thousands of nominations from over 12 different countries worldwide.

"Receiving the Clean Technology Transportation Solution of the Year award underscores the Sharrow Propeller’s transformative impact in promoting sustainability and efficiency," said Greg Sharrow, Founder and CEO of Sharrow Engineering and Sharrow Marine and inventor of the Sharrow™ Propeller.
