Stabiliser pioneer eyes new markets and larger boats
Italy-headquartered stabiliser company Smartgyro is exhibiting its range of gyro stabilisers at boot Düsseldorf 2023 including the new SG150 model – its biggest to date.
Smartgyro is showcasing the SG150 model as part of a full line-up of technology on display at Europe’s leading marine leisure fair, including the SG20, SG40 and SG80 models as well as the Smartgyro Graphical User Interface (GUI).
Largest stabiliser opens up new markets
The SG120 is aimed at 70-85ft vessels, while the SG150 covers 80-95ft, both slotting in neatly at the top end of the existing SG20/40/60/80 range. The SG range of stabilisers are ideal for new builds and refit installations on a variety of recreational powerboats, superyachts and superyacht tenders.
It is anticipated that the new models will also help fill an increasing demand from the yacht charter market where the benefits of gyroscopic marine stabilisation open up the seas to clients who may not have chartered before due to concerns around motion-related discomfort.
Smartgyro is exhibiting on a new-look stand, alongside Yanmar, Maxwell, Vetus and Flexofold at boot Düsseldorf 2023 to present the increased options and complete solutions the synergy between the brands offers.
In December 2022, MIN reported that Mack Boring & Parts Co. signed a distribution agreement with Smartgyro to bring its stabilisation product to market in the United States.
Smartgyro Graphical User Interface
Thanks to the new Smartgyro GUI (Graphical User Interface), available for demonstration at boot Düsseldorf this year, it is now possible to view, control and monitor the boat’s stabilisation status and activities more accurately than ever before.
Based on an Exor Xa5 display, but also compatible with Garmin’s OneHelm system along with Raymarine and Simrad MFDs, the interface promises ever greater integration with the future capability of controlling Vetus, Smartgyro, and Maxwell systems from a single place with just a few taps to switch from one to another.
2023 marks an exciting time for Smartgyro, with a recently launched new website which it says offers a more effective digital presence through easier, faster mobile-friendly navigation of the SG models and an interactive map to easily find the nearest dealers and distributors. Additionally, by developing a specific dealer portal on the new website, Smartgyro is committed to providing its distributors, dealers, and partners all over the world with the necessary tools, allowing them to operate efficiently with technical information just a click away.
Sander Gesink, marketing director at Smartgyro explains: “The return of boot Düsseldorf offers us a great opportunity to introduce Smartgyro’s brand new GUI, already in preview specification here, together with our latest models the SG120 and SG150, to new markets and customers. We welcome all to come and talk to us about how Smartgyro can help you to “feel the magic” from gyroscopic stabilisation and maximise your time on the water, at Stand A-40 in Hall 10.”
