VF1050-66 1.05SQM STABILISER VECTOR FIN
Stabilizer systems have been around for a long time, but are typically only used on larger passenger ships and super yachts. The dramatically increased comfort and usability of any boat, have made owners of also smaller leisure vessels wish for this. When installing a high performing stabilization system onboard, you benefit from:
Increased comfort on board
- More use of the boat as you can go out in more weather conditions.
- People that easily get seasick can now enjoy boating.
- Less wear and tear of the boat as you do not have to always head into or away from larger waves to avoid the uncomfortable rolling motion.
Increased safety on board
- Reduced risk of accidents caused by unexpected boat roll.
- Increased crew awareness by less fatigue and discomfort.
Less overall fuel consumption
While adding fins (or other stabilizer types), most systems will increase the fuel consumption a little at the same speed, fins by direct drag in the water, and gyros by adding weight. However, our claim is that the overall fuel consumption will be reduced because with stabilizers, you can take the direct route to where you wish to go, even in rough conditions. You can also choose a more fuel efficient speed, with the waves from the side, while still being comfortable (modern cruisers have less roll at higher speeds, thereby people often drive them hard to avoid the rolling). This is a generic statement for all fin stabilizer systems, with Vector Fins\u2122, this improves even further, as described later for the added benefits of Vector FinsTM.
Second hand boat value
Surely, the boat will be a lot more attractive on the used boat market, boasting a system that allows people who might be prone to seasickness to reconsider their ability to enjoy the sea, and thereby adding a whole new range of potential buyers.
