The Smartgyro SG80 is a sophisticated gyroscopic stabilizer
Genoa Boat Show, October 1 to 6, Smartgyro Stand TR8
Gyro stabilization technology company Smartgyro will debut its innovative gyro stabilizers and preview the expansion of the range at Genoa Boat Show next month. With backing by YANMAR announced earlier this year, the company will also launch its new brand identity and logo at the 60th edition of the Italian exhibition.
Offering unique advantages to boat owners and boatbuilders, the first two products in the Smartgyro SG range are the SG40, for boats from 50ft to 60ft, and the SG80, for boats from 60ft to 70ft. Le Spezia-based Smartgyro is preparing to launch the SG20 for boats from 45ft to 52ft by early 2021 in line with its strategy to offer a complete range of stabilizers for boats from 30ft to 100ft, starting with the introduction of SG10 in the near future for the lower end of the range.
Ideal for both new builds and refit installations, the stabilizers can be fully serviced on-board the vessel without the need to lift out for maintenance, ensuring significant time and cost savings. They also feature design innovations within the control electronics, braking system, cooling system and vacuum enclosure to maximize roll reduction and efficiency, under every sea state and condition.
Smartgyro Sales Manager Carlo Gazerro said: “We are looking forward to introducing the SG40 and SG80 to visitors at our home boat show, offering boat owners the chance to improve on-board comfort and make life on a boat a more positive experience. Adding to a number of design innovations such as liquid cooling and highly efficient control electronics, the outstanding Smartgyro advantage is that our stabilizers can be fully serviced in situ, in the vessel, including major overhaul and bearing replacement at the major service intervals. Instead of removing the unit from the vessel and shipping it back to the factory to perform these same services, it is possible to perform all activities and all servicing in the vessel in a fraction of the time. This means less down time, significantly reduced service costs and the extended life of the product in the vessel.”
Announced earlier this year, Smartgyro is backed by strategic partner YANMAR Group and its companies, including Vetus, Maxwell and Flexofold. With the new support, Smartgyro has accelerated the design, development and launch of a full line-up of highly advanced gyro stabilizers for recreational and commercial marine applications.
