Seakeeper, the company specialized in marine stabilization, launched its smallest model yet, the Seakeeper 1, shortly before the Miami International Boat Show started.
The Seakeeper 1 is designed to eliminate up to 95% of boat roll on vessel 23-30 feet (7-9 meters) or up to ~ 5.5 tons. With a height of only 15.68”, deck installation beneath a seat promises to be easier than ever. It sports a new look with a window on the top and relies solely on 12 V DC power, consuming only 55 Amps, thanks to the vacuum encapsulation.
Seakeeper 1 starts stabilizing in just 15 minutes, and it will be easily controlled by a keypad called ConnectBox, placed directly on top of the unit. The completely hoseless and self- contained single-cylinder active control is engineered for enhanced performance and reliability.
“This is the product we wanted to bring to the industry since Seakeeper started,” said Seakeeper President & CEO Andrew Semprevivo. “The Seakeeper 1 is the smallest, most innovative and most efficient gyro stabilizer on the market. Today is a monumental day for us as we realize our goal to bring stabilization to the masses.”
Many boat manufacturers have already planned to integrate the Seakeeper 1 into their newest models, some of which include Jupiter Marine, Regal Boats, SeaVee Boats, SEA PRO Boats, and Cobia Boats.
The Seakeeper 1 will be available for shipment beginning June 2020 and will retail for $14,900. Additional specs include:
- Envelope dimensions: 90” L x 23.56” W x 15.68” H (0.582 L x 0.598 W x 0.398 H (meters))
- Weight: 350 lbs. (159 kg)
- Rated Speed: 9,750 RPM
