DMS ready to roll out AntiRoll
The AntiRoll stabilisation system, which was first presented to the market at the beginning of 2013 and has been in development ever since, is to be launched in September 2014.
AntiRoll has been undergoing testing at Wageningen’s marine research institute, MARIN where the force the fin could generate and resist in motion and at zero speed was scrutinised. And according to the results, when compared to conventional fins the fins provided a reduction in resistance of 75 per cent.
The system is to be installed on board 37m Vagabundus, which is currently under construction at Wim van der Valk Continental Yachts. A statement issued by the system’s developer, Dynamic Marine Systems read:
The Vagabundus is, in fact, the first ship in the world to be equipped with the AntiRoll stabilisation system; a premiere. Hardly surprising, incidentally, seeing as innovation is paramount at Wim van der Valk Continental Yachts. That doesn’t mean being innovative for the sake of innovation. The ultimate goal is improving the quality technically. With an excellent 'scientific report', AntiRoll matches this criteria and aim perfectly, improving comfort, safety and the sailing experience and is why it took little effort to convince the client.
Its developers claim the system is suitable for both motoryachts and sailing yachts.
