Seakeeper Unveils New Seakeeper 6
New model provides impressive stabilization performance for vessels from 40 to 49 feet
CALIFORNIA, Md. (June 1, 2017) – Seakeeper Inc., the leader in marine stabilization, announced today the release of its newest model, the Seakeeper 6. This model is designed to eliminate up to 95% of boat roll on 40- to 49-foot vessels, up to roughly 20 tons.
While providing a level of stabilization comparable to Seakeeper’s original model, the M7000, the new Seakeeper 6 is a considerable 40 percent smaller, draws 25 percent less power, and costs roughly half as much as the original model. As marine stabilization has evolved and spread over the past decade, customers’ expectations have evolved as well. Eliminating more than 90 percent of boat roll was once unfathomable, but Seakeeper’s ability to condense more stabilizing force into a smaller volume has allowed them to achieve levels of stability never seen before.
“The Seakeeper 6 is a landmark achievement for us,” said Andrew Semprevivo, Seakeeper’s Chief Operating Officer. “We are driven to set the bar for marine stabilization and this new model demonstrates that relentless push to keep innovating. Every day our engineers are working to refine our technology to provide our customers with the greatest possible level of stability each and every time they get out on the water.”
The Seakeeper 6 showcases new developments in both the technology behind and the design of Seakeepers. The new model’s sphere and internal components have all been redesigned to provide the maximum angular momentum for a given footprint. The Seakeeper 6 also boasts an updated electronics suite, including an all-new touch screen display with NMEA and Ethernet capabilities.
The Seakeeper 6 is available for order now. Units will begin shipping on July 1st.
