Western Marine Electronics announced that it received a $350,000 contract for a four-fin, At-Anchor roll stabilizer system on a 179-foot Turkish superyacht undergoing conversion at a shipyard in Turkey.

Wesmar said the contract is from Nautique Marine Group, a multinational company with branches in Turkey, the United States and the Netherlands.

“The contract is for a complete Wesmar DSP4803 Stabilizer system, an At-Anchor design featuring Wesmar's powerful and fast triple-axis gyro system, which uses rate gyros and accelerometers to sample the speed and angle of a vessel’s roll at an unheard of speed of 4,800 times per second. Regardless of a vessel’s design, or size, this system can respond instantaneously to the demands for quick turns in all types of seas,” Wesmar president and founder Bruce H. Blakey said in a statement.

Woodinville, Wash.-based Wesmar supplies marine systems, including roll fin stabilizers, bow and stern thrusters, hydraulics and high-resolution sonar and underwater security systems to commercial and recreational vessels and to governments and municipalities around the world.
