Smartgyro Debuts Stabilizers

1_Smartgyro product line-up

Italy-based Smartgyro will introduce its first two gyroscopic stabilizers at the Genoa Boat Show, which runs Oct. 1-6.

The SG40 is designed for boats from 50 to 60 feet, and the SG80 for 60- to 70-footers. The units can be installed in new builds or existing boats, according to Smartgyro.


“We aim to partner with OEMs to fit our units in new-build boats, giving more people the option of experiencing life on board with a gyroscopic stabilizer,” sales manager Carlo Gazerro said in a statement.

Yanmar acquired majority ownership of Smartgyro earlier this year. Smartgyro said it is developing a range of stabilizers.

Full specifications for the SG40 and SG80 can be found here.
