The Seakeeper 3 has been designed for boats ranging from 9m-11m (30ft-39ft) and features a newly designed touch screen control panel with an intuitive user interface allowing users to capture real-time performance information.
Marine stabilization specialist Seakeeper is set to demonstrate its latest model, Seakeeper 3, at this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The unit has been designed for boats ranging from 9m-11m (30ft-39ft).
The new model is the smallest and lightest Seakeeper unit yet and the first to run exclusively on 12-volt DC power with no need for a generator or AC input.
“The Seakeeper 3 is an exciting next step in our ongoing goal to bring stabilization to the boating mainstream by offering our innovative technology on smaller and smaller vessels,” says Andrew Semprevivo, vice president of sales and marketing.
“By offering an optimized solution for boats between 30ft and 39ft, Seakeeper is offering stabilization solutions to a whole new range of boats for the first time. It truly is our biggest, smallest thing yet.”
Seakeeper says this new model builds on innovations that began with the Seakeeper 5. The unit is 25% smaller and 30% lighter than the Seakeeper 5.
In addition, the Seakeeper 3 features a newly designed touch screen control panel with an intuitive user interface allowing users to capture real-time performance information.
The manufacturer claims that the easy installation of the Seakeeper 3 removes another barrier for boaters with smaller vessels.
“With a customized leaning post design, the refit process can be as simple as swapping out the leaning post. In these cases, no major structural modifications are required when installing the Seakeeper 3, and the unit can be installed and ready to use in as little as two days,” Seakeper explains in a statement.
The Seakeeper 3 will debut at the 2016 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The event opens from 3-7 November.
