WESMAR's At Anchor At Ft. Lauderdale

Press Release
Thursday, October 04, 2012

WESMAR (Western Marine Electronics) will feature their At Anchor digital stabilizer systems at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, Oct. 25-29, 2012, in Florida. The At Anchor technology is designed to monitor incoming swells and automatically control fin movement to reduce vessel roll up to 90% for luxury yachts, charter boats, super yachts, and commercial vessels.  

“The  At Anchor system changes the dynamics of roll fin stabilization by using advanced digital signal processing and a proprietary gyro to predict vessel behavior. The system memorizes roll characteristics of a boat in order to preempt rolling.  The roll velocity, acceleration and the vessel’s unique roll characteristics are delivered by digital link to WESMAR’s closed proportional hydraulic system. A wheelhouse display shows real-time vessel roll and fin movement. Our customers are extremely pleased with the system,” said Bob Sentz, WESMAR Vice President.

Serge Heiss, 0wner/captain of a beautiful 75-foot Sunseeker Preditor BLUE DRAGON says “WESMAR’s At Anchor system eliminated 70% of the roll At Anchor and 90% underway...regardless of sea conditions.”

Alaska fisherman Bill Hammer says, “The WESMAR At Anchor system makes for more efficient and safer working conditions” on board his 56-foot longliner, SILVER LADY, and he estimates a fuel savings of 10 to 15%  because of it.

Fikret Ezberci of Ezberci Marine, WESMAR’s dealer in Turkey, who has taken delivery of the WESMAR DSP4803 Triple Axis (At Anchor) system with 32 square foot fins for a new line of gorgeous motor yachts being built in the Antalya free zone says, “The company chose WESMAR for their luxury yachts because they  wanted the best equipment.”

WESMAR reports several other systems have been ordered and installed including three systems for 90-foot yachts in Majorca, Spain; and a 60-foot Clipper yacht from Queensland, Australia.

WESMAR’s complete line of roll fin stabilizers, all stainless steel bow and stern thrusters, and navigation and sport fishing sonar will be on display in Booths 619 and 620 in the Yacht Builders Tent Bahia Mar and Booth 617 and 618 with Cable Marine in Builders Tent; and in 400/500 Tent Booth #426 with Yacht Equipment and Parts (YEP).
