Marine stabilization company Seakeeper developed its first DC-powered gyro.

Marine stabilization company Seakeeper developed its first DC-powered gyro.

Engineered for boats of 30 to 40 feet, the Seakeeper 3DC seeks to reduce resonant roll by as much as 95 percent in a wide range of sea conditions. Based on the company's Seakeeper 5, the Seakeeper 3DC shares the same footprint of 30 by 30 by 25 inches and weight of 790 pounds.

The unit has an electrical draw of between 500 and 1,000 watts, depending on the sea state.

The new model retails for $29,900. Seakeeper is taking orders. Shipments will begin in June.

"At Seakeeper, we pride ourselves in listening to the demands of the market," Seakeeper vice president of sales and marketing Andrew Semprevivo said in a statement. "We're excited to launch the first DC-powered stabilization system for boats in this size class."
