The Italian firm’s Stabilis Electra stabiliser fins have been installed on a Marlow Yachts Explorer

Italian stabilisation specialist CMC Marine has signed its first new-build contract in the US with Marlow Yachts. The Tuscan company recently supplied the well-known US brand with Stabilis Electra stabilizer fins for a new Marlow Explorer.

“We are very pleased with the contract signed with Marlow Yachts. It rewards all the work we’ve done so far and there is no doubt it represents a starting point for our strategy to grow the business in the United States,” said Alessandro Gallifuoco, vice president of CMC Marine USA and head of business development, who manages the US branch in tandem with Buddy Morgan, sales director.

Stabilis Electra is an anchor stabilization system for yachts from 18m upwards. The stabilizer fins are connected to a permanent magnet brushless motor and their fast response and reduced energy absorption make them a popular model on the market for electric stabilizers.

CMC Marine is a long-established manufacturer of stabilisation systems, rudders and bow thrusters for yachts and passenger ships over 16m in length. The company is based in Pisa.
