In an agreement valid through 2015, Seakeeper has been named Brunswick Boat Group's preferred supplier for stabilization systems.
Seakeeper's actively controlled gyros will be offered as options, with projects already underway on the Hatteras 77, and several new Sea Ray and Meridian Sport Yacht, Yacht and Sedan Bridge models in development.
In making this commitment to Seakeeper, Brunswick Boat Group can now offer enhanced comfort and safety to its boat customers. After participating in a sea trial on a Seakeeper gyro-stabilized craft, Brunswick Boat Group team members saw the advantages this technology could deliver. "Seakeeper sizes its gyro installations to reduce resonant boat roll by 60-80%, enabling owners to enjoy significantly more days on the water. With the combination of Brunswick Boat Group's state-of-the art vessels and our technologically advanced gyro stabilization systems, their customers will be among the happiest and most comfortable on the water," said John Kermet, Seakeeper COO. "We see this as a great path forward for our brands, as it enables us to offer a new value proposition to customers that enhances the enjoyment of their boats," said Larry Krestan, VP of Sales for Sport Yachts and Yachts. "Seakeeper produces a superior product line, which fits well with our mission of delivering the latest technology to elevate the boating experience."
