The RotorSwing Magnus yacht stabilizer has been developed by RotorSwing Marine, and is based on the Magnus effect.

In early 2017, we have improved the RotorSwing Zerospeed with a longer arm and increased power on the motors. You will now be able to see up to 95 percent roll damping while cruising and at anchor. For those who only need stabilization while cruising, we still carry the cost effective Underway version.

Many yacht owners are looking for an affordable yacht stabilizer that is both retractable and efficient during lower cruising speeds.  The RotorSwing Magnus also offers a so called RAKE function whereby the Rotors are being set at an angle to limit drag.  With less drag, we see lower fuel consumption! The RotorSwing Magnus yacht stabilizer is fully retractable. The Rotors automatically retract while idling or while going astern.  Another safety feature from RotorSwing Marine!

The improved RotorSwing Zerospeed.

The improved RotorSwing Zerospeed provides superb roll damping while at anchor and while sailing. The patented RAKE function swings the rotors towards the aft do decrease draft.

Magnus Stabilizers will outperform any other stabilizer systems on the market including:

  • Silent operation (fully electric)
  • Standard patented RAKE (reduced drag)
  • Retractable (scarcely protruding parts)
  • Superior at low speed (roll damping from 3 knots upwards)
  • Fully automatic (simple two button operation)
  • Suitable for faster vessels (patented RAKE control)
  • Easy to install (no bulky hydraulic pump and tank)
  • Superb following sea behavior

Magnus Stabilizers for low Cruising Speeds

Many stabilizer systems don't function well while cruising at lower speeds.  The RotorSwing Magnus however performs excellent while cruising at lower speeds.  We have measured roll damping above 95 percent!

Extensive testing indicates that the RotorSwing system is superior to any other stabilization system on the market to date.   The ability for the rotors to automatically retract while going astern or adrift is an important safety feature. All these features along with the silent operation, easy installation and superb following sea behavior places the RotorSwing into a stabilization category that is unmatched.

The "Rake" function for this model is optional and will provide your roll damping system with reduced drag while cruising at faster speeds.


The RAKE function is fully automatic and reduces drag

The RotorSwing Magnus Stabilizers are being delivered with the patented RAKE function, whereby the rotors are set at an angle while cruising with the purpose to reduce drag. This semi-retractability is automatically engaged above a certain cruising speed. 

With less drag, you will safe fuel consumption!  Another great invention from RotorSwing Marine.
