Side-Power Stabilizers are designed for use in high speed, and have undergone extensive testing for over 4 years
WHAT DO STABILIZERS DO?
Stabilizer systems have been around for a long time, but typically only used on larger passenger ships and super yachts. However, the dramatically increased comfort and usability of any boat have made owners of also smaller leisure vessels wish for this.
By reducing the uncomfortable rolling motion of the boat up to 95% you get a lot of advantages: · Increased comfort on board - More use of the boat as you can go out in more weather conditions - Less wear and tear of the boat as you do not have to always head into or away from larger waves to avoid people onboard becoming seasick by the uncomfortable rolling motion
· Less overall fuel consumption - While adding fins (or other types) basically will increasing the fuel consumption a little at the same speed, our claim is that the overall fuel consumption will be reduced - You can take the direct route to where you wish to go even in rough conditions - You can go at a lower speed with the waves from the side while still being comfortable (modern cruisers have less roll at higher speeds, thereby people often drive them hard to avoid the rolling)
Stabilizer Control Panel
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT We have worked on the stabilizer project for more than two years, and have had working products in our purpose built 58ft test and development boat since the beginning of 2009. During this period, we have taken the time to learn about existing solutions and products to have the best possible background to design a even better product.
KEY DESIGN ELEMENTS WE ENDED UP WITH WAS · The importance of low drag · Compact installation measurements · Easy installation and set up procedures for the boat · Sturdy and reliable construction of actuator assembly · Controller intelligence, the most important difference between brands
