The Role (!) Of Seakeeper Stabilisers On A Boat

Some people when out on the sea in anything other than really calm conditions (and how often does that happen?) experience that queasy feeling, while others may feel quite sick. Indeed, some people when out in rough weather actually are physically sick.
Seakeeper stabilisers are the answer. When fitted, they reduce the roll of the boat by anything up to 95% which means that even those who promised they would never venture out on the waves again suddenly can't wait to get back out on the water – provided the boat has a Seakeeper fitted!
So what are Seakeeper stabilisers, and how do they work? The Seakeeper is a computer controlled gyroscope that eliminates almost all boat roll, keeping the craft steady and delighting the passengers. The Seakeeper weighs only between 2% and 4% of the weight of the boat, uses less power than the air conditioning, and can be fitted in any available space almost anywhere in the boat. It is completely internal, and there is nothing to fit on the outside of the boat.
Seakeeper uses a gyroscope that spins at speeds of up to 557 mph which is enough to - er – stop the boat from rolling. The flywheel is encapsulated in a vacuum and has a patented cooling system which removes heat from the vacuum chamber, dissipating it through a combination of glycol and seawater. This is what enables the flywheel to spin at such a high speed. Smart technology automatically gauges the state of the sea and reacts instantaneously. As the boat rolls, the gyroscope tilts fore and aft which produces a powerful gyroscopic torque to port and starboard that reduces the roll of the boat.
Seakeeper is designed to reduce roll on boats 30' and up, and its' computerised control and vacuum technology makes it the first truly practical, and only modern, anti-roll gyro.  
Frers Design very often includes Seakeeper stabilisers in the design of a motor yacht in order to keep it stable and make those aboard as comfortable as possible in any sea state.
