No Loss of speed!

Due to the vector fins unique shape, it creates as much lift as it adds drag - resulting in virtually no loss of speed and thereby no added fuel cost!

Why are the Vector™ fins so much better?

Vector fins™ simply re-direct the force direction/force vectors to a direction where more of the force will benefit roll reduction and less will spent on the negative side-effects of yaw and sway that is hurts the boats handling and comfort.

The vertical concave shape of the fin, makes the net force directions, both in cruising and in at anchor situations to be re-directed so that they work more “up/down” instead of just parallel to the hull angle.

But there is more, by changing the net force angle, this also increase the leverage arm around the boats rolling point, further enhancing the roll reduction force benefits. This provides a lot more roll stabilization per fin size, which means that drag, power consumption, internal space occupation as well as load on the mechanical parts is a lot less than with other fins that can give a similar roll reduction.

Hush!

The Side-Power actuators are designed to operate extremly quiet, letting you spend those amazing nights at anchor under the stars, instead of a busy harbour!

SPS55 Actuator

- the most compact fin
stabilizer actuator ever!

- fits where others won`t!

Size compared to other brand actuators for similar fin sizes

SPS55 Actuator

Construction benefits:

  • Squared base plate provides large load distribution area to hull while still being possible to install in tight areas between stringers and bulkheads.
  • Dual, balanced cylinders provide symmetrical load and force.
  • The actuator can be installed in any direction in the boat, the fin angle is totally independent of actuator direction.
  • No moving hoses at all secures against leakages and potential wear, as well as making the installation easier.
  • Oversized bearings for lifetime operation with only a minimal level of maintenance.
  • Rack & pinion drive connection for quiet, reliable, long life operation, with very easy service when needed after thousands of operational hours.
  • Fins are installed and removed very easy and quickly from the outside for best convenience in for example transport or other haul-out situations where this might be needed.
  • Defined shaft-shear point in case of the fins accidentally hitting something.
  • All wet parts in stainless steel.

SPS62 / 92 / 93 Actuators

Silent, compact and reliable

SPS62 / 92 / 93 Actuators

Construction benefits:

  • Precision machining and assembly secures a long lifetime and durability.
  • No additional centre lock, this is automatic in the standard hydraulic system – very safe due to the hydraulics having extreme safety limits – actually stronger than the shaft.
  • - balanced load unlike single cylinder solutions.- less bearing load, thereby allowing for a more compact shaft bearing assembly.
  • Purpose-designed dual shaft sealing - superior to standard Simmer Ring lip seals.
  • Internal hydraulic connections on actuators are pre-fitted, the installer only fits non-moving hoses/pipes - Easier and safer.
  • No complex adjustments required to set up controller with lots of factors, these are set automatically on first sea-trial of the boat.
  • Bearing and actuator design done with modern structural analysis systems ensures a safe, efficient and compact system.
  • No additional centre lock, this is automatic in the standard hydraulic system – very safe due to the hydraulics having extreme safety limits – actually stronger than the shaft.
  • Lifetime lubricated SKF bearings.
  • Tooling for easy hull preparation.
