For the first time, stabilization available for boats as small as 23′
CALIFORNIA, Md. (February 12, 2020) – Seakeeper, the leader in marine stabilization, launched its newest, smallest, and most radically different model yet, the Seakeeper 1, today at a media event before the Miami International Boat Show.
The Seakeeper 1 is designed to eliminate up to 95% of boat roll on a vessel 23-3 feet (7-9 meters) or up to ~ 5.5 tons. With a fresh, new look, the Seakeeper 1 includes unique features including:
FLUSH MOUNT INSTALLATION
The Seakeeper 1 is completely contained with no part of the sphere hanging below the point of installation. With a height of only 15.68″, deck installation beneath a seat is easier than ever.
A fresh new look, including a window on the top, makes the Seakeeper 1 even more appealing for above-deck installation and for owners to show off their new feature.
12V DC POWER
The Seakeeper 1 relies solely on 12 V DC power, and thanks to the Vacuum encapsulation, consumes only 55 Amps.
With a totally unique flywheel and smaller envelope, the Seakeeper 1 can start stabilizing in record time- just 15 minutes.
CONTROL KEYPAD ON UNIT
A control keypad, called the ConnectBox, is directly on top of the unit. Now, the Seakeeper can be controlled from the helm, or directly from the unit itself.
SINGLE CYLINDER BREAK
The completely hose less and self contained single cylinder active control is engineered for enhanced performance and reliability.
“Since the Seakeeper started, this is the product we wanted to bring to the industry,” 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.”
More than 12 boat manufactures already have plans 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 Seakeepr 1 will be available for shipment beginning June 2020 and will retail for $14,900. Additional specs include:
Envelope dimensions: 22.90″ 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
Angular Momentum at Rated Speed: 1,000 N-M-S
