Seakeeper posts impressive numbers

Industry Database

Seakeeper Inc, the US-headquartered marine stabilization specialist, has announced that the company sold more than 1,000 gyros for the first time in company history, continuing its trend of doubling total shipments every two years. Sales of Seakeepers for boats under 50 feet were up 95 percent last year.

Last November, the company unveiled the Seakeeper 3, the first gyroscope optimized for vessels as small as 30 feet, introducing Seakeeper to a brand new market segment. It also launched an entire line of new products, the Seakeeper HD line, which is the first series of Seakeepers designed specifically for military and commercial applications.

Refits continued to represent a significant portion of Seakeeper business in 2016. More than 25 percent of total sales were from Seakeeper aftermarket installations. These refits are expected to become an even greater source of revenue in 2017, as the Seakeeper 3’s customized leaning post allows for installation above deck. The company projects continued growth in 2017 as sales of existing Seakeeper models increase and the Seakeeper 3 and Seakeeper HD models bring stabilization to new vessel types.
