The newest Seakeeper gyro stabilizer, just introduced at the Fort Lauderdale show, is specifically designed for boats from 30 to 39 feet, and it runs exclusively on 12-volt DC power without any need for a genset or AC input. The new Seakeeper 3 model is 30 percent lighter, and 25 percent smaller, than any previous Seakeeper, and is the first streamlined for smaller boats.

The Seakeeper 3 has a new touch screen control panel with an intuitive user interface and the company says installation is easy, without requiring any structural modifications, and can be completed in two days. Seakeeper is taking orders for the new unit now, with shipping scheduled for next spring.

I tested the first Seakeeper when it came out several years ago on a 60-foot Azimut and I was immediately impressed with how it truly smooths out the sea, making boating much more pleasant for all on board, whether underway or at anchor. Most recently, I tested it on a new MJM 50Z, where it was standard, with the same result. To see how it works, watch the video:
