Seakeeper Is Serious About Small Boats

Published: Tuesday, December 3, 2019

With the goal to stabilize every boat on the water, Seakeeper, the leader in marine stabilization, is taking large strides to make that goal a reality.

There is no one-size-fits-all guide to stabilization, but one thing is certain: the smaller the boat, the more affected it is by wave and weather conditions. Seakeeper recognizes the smaller boat sector is unique and its stabilization needs are as well. Therefore, it’s committed to adding new products, improving current products, and creating tools specifically for small boat sizing. Here’s what’s new: 

Seakeeper 2 – New Price And Performance

Thanks to new software developments allowing for enhanced performance, the size range for the Seakeeper 2 has been expanded to include boats up to 35 feet (10.5 meters) and now retails at $19,900 (reduced from $22,700). 

Small Boat Sizing Guide

Using real sea trial results, Seakeeper created this new guide to enable customers to select the Seakeeper model that best fits their boat. When two comparable Seakeeper models are available, such as the Seakeeper 2 and Seakeeper 3, the Small Boat Sizing Guide will assist users in selecting the best Seakeeper model for them based on how they use their boat. 

Seakeeper 5 – Better Than Before

The new and improved Seakeeper 5 is back in the lineup. The Seakeeper 5 won’t be the same unit that existed in the past, instead impletmenting all the improvements made to the current Seakeeper 6, but offered at a lower price of $38,900 and is ideal for boats 40-45 feet (12-14 meters). Between the Seakeeper 5 and the Seakeeper 6, which is now installed on more than 35% of new boats 40-49 feet (12-15 meters), customers will get more freedom to choose what best suits their needs. 

“The small boat market is so diverse, and the way people use their small boats can vary drastically,” said Seakeeper President & CEO Andrew Semprevivo. “We want to give boat owners stabilization options so they’re able to choose a Seakeeper that is best for them, their boat, and how they use it.”
