Seakeeper debuts new gyro

ADVERTISEMENT

Maryland-based Seakeeper has delivered its largest gyro to date, the M26000 to be installed on Jim Smith Boats’ hull No. 29. This 105-foot custom, tournament sportfish yacht is scheduled to launch in 2013.

“Directional stability is very important for high speeds,” said John Vance, Jim Smith Boats president. “Seakeeper’s internal gyro just makes sense. This way there are no parts in the water to reduce the boat’s performance. Seakeeper’s gyro is a unique product and a quality piece of hardware.”

Seakeeper’s gyros virtually eliminate zero- and low-speed boat roll, working at anchor and under way. They don’t require through-hull cutting and eliminate drag-producing appendages.
