Enjoy your Flybridge Party Area while at anchor in beam seas!

RotorSwing Marine enrolled the most versatile stabilizer available!

Where fins and gyro’s have their specific application, the RS 140 ZeroSpeed combines low speed underway (up to 14 knots – above this speed active stabilization is rarely required) and in ZeroSpeed situations. This way it makes the flybridge area accessible as if you were safely docked at the harbor. From the start of your journey in low cruising mode until moored/anchored in a nice bay enjoying your flybridge without spilling your glass of wine.

A closeup of the RotorSwing ZeroSpeed for short roll periods looks identical compared to our other ZeroSpeed versions. The main changes can be found inside the electronic control system.

RotorSwing Marine, besides being the inventors of the original Magnus ZeroSpeed stabilizers invented this new solution to enable ZeroSpeed technology for the popular range of 50-80’ Flybridge cruisers. We can successfully demonstrate this latest invention onboard our RotorSwing UK demonstrator: a Fairline 55 Squadron called “Lady G” in Guernsey.
