Seakeeper Gyro Stabilization System

Even the smoothest-riding boats will rock and roll in rough seas. Gyroscope technology can help.

Seakeeper's Gyro Stabilization System had been available only in Azimut yachts, but the company recently entered the global market, according to Seakeeper VP of sales and marketing John Kermet, who says Sunseeker, Fairline and Silverton expect to offer the gyro.

The product (38.5 by 30.7 by 26.5 inches, with a weight of 1,000 pounds) employs the principles of gyro-dynamics to exert a righting force to decrease boat motion at any speed, says Kermet. "It pulls on one side of the boat and pushes on the other side to counteract the boat's motion," he says. A single unit does the job for boats up to 60 feet and 60,000 pounds. Larger craft need multiple units. It can be installed as the boat is being built or retrofitted. MSRP is $79,000. Contact: Seakeeper, Solomons, Md., (410) 326-1590, www.seakeeper.com.
