Reducing the roll movement of a ship can greatly improve onboard comfort, reduce sea sickness and improve safety.
If a ship has little or no roll motion, it is more able to stay on course which in turn has a positive effect on the fuel consumption.
Effective and well working stabilisers on board power boats and yachts is therefore extremely important.
NZ Marine Stabilisers is proud to be the New Zealand Distributor for DMS Holland, the international specialist in the field of motion control on board power boats and yachts. They have three groundbreaking roll damping systems in their product range.
For displacement power boats and yachts up to 30 metre.
For fast planing power boats up to 30 metre.
For power boats and yachts larger than 30 metre.
“Why do I usually recommend people to choose a MagnusMaster rotor system? The most important argument is that the rotors are retractable. On the one hand, that’s too bad because I had a good business in replacing fins. I obviously lost that. But the customers are grateful that I accept that. Another important argument is that it takes up relatively little space on board. And that it has an electric drive. That makes installation also possible on many refit boats. One other benefit that is more for the future, for boats that are being built now, is that it is a CAN bus system meaning we are also able to connect to the Raymarine screens we install. This enables you to then completely monitor the MagnusMaster system.”

“I have already experienced a great deal of choppy water and waves with De Zwarte Ruiter. 2 weeks ago, during a weekend in Rotterdam, it was the Steam Power Event in Dordrecht and as a result, it was very busy on the water with speed boats, water taxis to / from Rotterdam and very choppy water. De Zwarte Ruiter was pretty keen to roll but she just couldn’t. It may well have cost money, but it’s worth it. My wife Cobie and I are of course very very happy with it. As I said from the beginning, it’s just like sailing on smooth tarmac.”

“We then turned the stabilizers on and it was just incredible what I experienced. The boat just remained steady and really didn’t roll, not even with the waves. I couldn’t believe it at times. I honestly even sent Patrick a message in the evening; this is not normal, it is beyond our expectation.”

“A big advantage of the system is that it is a maintenance-free system, there is no need for lubrication and so there a service is not required. The system is certainly simple to operate, it is easy for the customer to read-out and monitor. User friendly. It is a CAN-bus system which, because it has NMEA 2000, can also be read-out on vessels’ big screen.”

“One of the major reasons among others to install the DMS system is that they have different lengths of hull bushings that can be installed on this type of vessel. Some yachts need small bushings. The ones that we have used are over 500 mm long and they were readily available. When we came to the point of making business they were already on the shelf so to say. Very fast, very efficient, very good people to work with.”
