Sea Ray has made Seakeeper gyro stabilizers standard equipment on its flagship L650 Fly.

"The L-Class represents a new paradigm for Sea Ray and for yachting in general, and with the L650 Fly, we have demonstrated just how thoroughly true style and true performance elevate one another," Sea Ray Group president Tim Schiek said in a statement.

“The inclusion of Seakeeper gyros is a testament to how fully the L-Class embodies ingenuity and innovation in service of a better experience on the water. We are thrilled to offer Seakeepers as a standard feature on the L650 Fly," said Brunswick Recreational Boat Group vice president of engineering Ron Berman.

In sea trials of up to 5-foot seas, the Seakeepers reduced resonant boat roll by 83 percent at zero speed, 80 percent at 8 knots and 76 percent at 18 knots.

“Modern engineering and naval architecture have greatly improved natural hull stability, yet any vessel is still prone to resonant roll. Sea Ray recognized that combining its advanced hull physics with Seakeepers will deliver the best experience on the water,” Seakeeper director of global sales Andrew Semprevivo said.
