Compact Stabilizer for Vessels Under 45 Feet


Compact Stabilizer for Vessels Under 45 Feet

WESMAR (USA) announced that they have developed an active stabilizer system that is compact enough to fit smaller spaces, but has the power and features of a full sized roll fin stabilizer system. Boat owners with vessels 45 feet and under can now have the same stable ride larger boats with stabilizers enjoy. WESMAR claims that thanks to advanced electronics they have not sacrificed speed, reliability or power to produce this new, smaller system.

Named the Model RS250, the new system will have 2.5-square foot fins. The first units are being installed this week on a 36-foot Grand Banks followed by a line up of other boats scheduled throughout the next 30 days. The 2.5-square foot fins will soon be followed by 3.5- square foot fins, currently in final stages of engineering, said company. The RS250 uses the same electronic gyro, which produces quick response, a standard feature with the larger WESMAR systems. “Our development of a low profile actuator and a smaller hydraulic tank have made it possible to produce a large boat system in a smaller package, at a reduced price,” said Bob Sentz, Managing Director of WESMAR’s Mechanical Division. Sentz was speaking on the eve of the product’s introduction at a technical dealer seminar in mid-June where they unveiled the new “mini” fin. This new design also allows for installation of the fins in tighter spots than before.
