Seakeeper launches new gyro stabilisation model

The Seakeeper team showcase their Seakeeper 5HD

Seakeeper, the world leader in gyro stabilisation in the marine industry has been using Seawork to showcase its new Seakeeper 5HD, which is designed for smaller boats of between 35- 44’ up to 15 tons.

The 5HD is part of the HD line, engineered for extended use in the harsh conditions of offshore operations. It is the smallest of the HD line for commercial use, with the 7HD, 12HD, 20HD and 30HD all part of the heavy-duty line.

Helping to revolutionise on-boat experience and safety, the anti-roll gyro system requires modest electrical power, has no outside appendages and can be installed off centreline, if required. Its computerised control and vacuum technology make it the first truly practical and only modern, antiroll gyro there is.

The Seakeeper team has been demonstrating the gyro system on stand P73 at Seawork with a demo boat to give visitors a hands-on experience of its stabilising capabilities.

Neil Malcolm from Seakeeper explains the benefits: “There are many reasons why people want a steady boat but in the commercial industry even more so. When you look at coastguards for example, they need to board vessels side by side, so having a stable platform by the side is key. Plus of course, seasickness which is a problem both in the leisure and commercial industry.

“We’ve been coming to Seawork for many years and have always found it a great show with good footfall. We’ve always made superb contacts when we’ve been here, so it felt like the perfect place to launch this new product.”
