Seakeeper unveils new model

Seakeeper said it released its newest model, the Seakeeper 6.

Seakeeper said it released its newest model, the Seakeeper 6, which the company said is designed to eliminate as much as 95 percent of boat roll on 40- to 49-foot vessels up to roughly 20 tons.

While providing a level of stabilization comparable to Seakeeper’s original model, the M7000, the new Seakeeper 6 is 40 percent smaller, draws 25 percent less power and costs roughly half as much as the original model.

As marine stabilization has evolved and spread during the past decade, customers’ expectations have evolved, as well. Eliminating more than 90 percent of boat roll was once unfathomable, but Seakeeper said its ability to condense more stabilizing force into a smaller volume has allowed the company to achieve more stability.

“The Seakeeper 6 is a landmark achievement for us,” Seakeeper COO Andrew Semprevivo said in a statement. “We are driven to set the bar for marine stabilization, and this new model demonstrates that relentless push to keep innovating. Every day our engineers are working to refine our technology to provide our customers with the greatest possible level of stability each and every time they get out on the water.”

The new model’s sphere and internal components have been redesigned to provide the “maximum angular momentum for a given footprint,” the company said.

The Seakeeper 6 also has an updated electronics suite, including a new touch-screen display with NMEA and ethernet capabilities.

The Seakeeper 6 is available for order. Units will begin shipping July 1.
