Seakeeper has officially announced their smallest unit to date, the Seakeeper 1. Designed to eliminate boat roll in boats 23 to 30 feet and up to 13,000 pounds, this compact stabilizer weighs 350 pounds and will be available for yacht tenders and small boats as early as June 2020.

New to the design is a flush-mount installation housing, and power draws are surprisingly low at just 55 amps running on only 12v DC power.

Spool-up time is significantly less than its larger predecessors, taking only 15 minutes from startup to fully functioning, and the control unit is now located directly on the device with capability of connectivity to Garmin, Simrad, and Raymarine MFDs.

We look forward to many installations of Seakeeper 1 in center
