In an agreement that runs through 2015, Seakeeper was named the Brunswick Boat Group's preferred supplier for stabilization systems.

Seakeeper's actively controlled gyros will be offered as options, and projects are under way on the Hatteras 77 and several new Sea Ray and Meridian sport yacht, yacht and sedan bridge models in development, the company announced.

"Seakeeper sizes its gyro installations to reduce resonant boat roll by 60 to 80 percent, enabling owners to enjoy significantly more days on the water,” Seakeeper CEO John Kermet said in a statement. “With the combination of Brunswick Boat Group's state-of-the-art vessels and our technologically advanced gyro stabilization systems, their customers will be among the happiest and most comfortable on the water."

"We see this as a great path forward for our brands, as it enables us to offer a new value proposition to customers that enhances the enjoyment of their boats," Sea Ray yacht sales vice president Larry Krestan said in a statement. "Seakeeper produces a superior product line, which fits well with our mission of delivering the latest technology to elevate the boating experience."
