Pitching, Rolling. Yawing. Three of the first words in any yacht owner’s vocabulary – and yet those they most hope to avoid. For all the thrill of being under way on the open sea, or anchored in a beautiful bay, stability is one of the key elements of a pleasurable voyage.
At Setag, we work with Quick Gyro gyroscopic stabilizers on our remaster projects to maximize stability and safety. Their range has been designed to meet all customers’ requirements; compact, quiet and with no installation limits on refits – matching their approach to new builds and our approach to remastered maritime.
Their gyroscopic technology can reduce boat roll by up to 95% and is equally effective whether sailing or at zero speed. This dedication to minimising on-board disruption wherever possible reveals their ethos of ‘comfort without compromise’.
When we upgrade your yacht’s stabilising technology, we will ensure you are left in control – the Quick Gyro stabilisers can be managed through a remote touch panel with 5” graphic display, controlled via a mobile app that will allow you to check the roll reduction percentage and the improvement in comfort, record the performance of the stabilizers and more – all via a swipe of your phone.
What’s more, thanks to the system’s horizontal axis rotation system, the mechanical stress and friction on the bearings are reduced, therefore lowering heat output – without the need for a water-cooled system like many of the rival options. And because the Gyro flywheel rotates around a horizontal axis, evenly distributing the weight on the bearings, the weight is distributed better, requiring less rotations and less effort and promoting quicker stabilization.
Once we have got you on an even keel, our next test is to ensure a lighting system that is fit for purpose. The marine environment teaches us to use very high-quality materials which must resist salt, humidity, water splashes, extreme temperatures above and below zero – even if in the interior. This is why the Quick Marine Lighting style fulfills all our criteria for Setag.
The creation of products in collaboration with designers is a customary activity at both Setag and Quick, given both company’s experience in manufacturing customised equipment for luxury yachts. Their combined expertise in the nautical sector will produce high-quality pre-owned products that aren’t comparable to market standards.
This is exactly why a Setag refit will revive your yacht to the level you have come to expect: thanks to cutting-edge stabilisation and lighting technology.
