The Ocean Alexander 70e will be the first U.S. production yacht to use Imtra’s Side-Power Vector Fins Stabilizer System.

For the Ocean Alexander 70e installation, marine manufacturer Imtra worked in conjunction with Volvo engineers — who produce the electronically controlled Volvo IPS drive systems for the vessel — to integrate the Side-Power stabilizers.

“The combination of the Side-Power Vector Fins, and Volvo engines and IPS drive system installed on our 70e, results in a superior ride,” Ocean Alexander U.S. operations director Richard Allende said in a statement.

“We have incorporated the highest-quality components to develop the most advanced-designed yacht in its class. This integrated systems approach safely increases the 70e’s top-end speed beyond our expectations and provides unparalleled performance and comfort our customers will enjoy.”

“The Side-Power Vector Fins that we provide our customers are incredible pieces of technology and we are proud that they have been selected for use on the beautiful and forward-thinking Ocean Alexander 70e,” Imtra CEO Eric Braitmayer said.

“We are seeing tremendous advances in integration between stabilization and propulsion systems, with Side-Power leading the way. The Vector Fins provide a noticeably more enjoyable yachting experience and, as such, they perfectly complement our entire range of high-quality marine products.”
