Smartgyro Stabilization System installed onboard Mangusta 92
Luxury Italian yacht builder reports successful sea trials for Mangusta superyacht fitted with advanced SG80 unit following new collaboration with gyroscopic stabilization specialist
Overmarine Group has collaborated with stabilization technology specialist Smartgyro for the installation of an SG80 unit on a Mangusta 92 superyacht.
The luxury Italian yacht builder selected the largest model of Smartgyro's gyroscopic stabilizer range for the refit project on the open style sport yacht due to the unique benefits offered by the SG80's modular mechanical design and advanced roll reduction technology.
Managed directly by Overmarine Group and completed at their shipyard in Viareggio, the addition of superior stabilization onboard the 28.3m vessel has earned positive reviews from the builder and owner after a smooth installation process and outstanding performance during recent sea trials.
Overmarine Group CEO Maurizio Balducci said: "We selected the SG80 for this project because of the significant maintenance and installation advantages provided by the structure of the unit, as well as the design innovations developed by Smartgyro to maximize roll reduction, performance and efficiency. We are pleased to report the satisfaction and enthusiasm of the owner after sea trials and look forward to further successful cooperation with Smartgyro in the future."
With more flexibility to easily install the modular SG80 in narrow spaces, Overmarine Group opted to position the Smartgyro unit in the stern area of the Mangusta 92, a sleek, luxury yacht with five cabins and accommodation for 10 overnight guests. Future maintenance and service work on the stabilizer can be carried out inside the boat, without the need to ship it back to the factory.
The SG80 is suitable for yachts over 60 feet, weighing 980 kg (2160 lbs) and measuring 1.08 x 1.11 x 0.87m (42.4 x 43.7 x 34.3 in).
Carlo Gazerro, Smartgyro Sales Manager, added: "We are proud to have worked with Overmarine Group as a leader in the global boating market and very pleased that the stabilization on the Mangusta has exceeded the expectations of the owner. Comfort onboard is of great value today, with superior stabilization solutions in great demand. Our focus remains on enabling more boaters and OEMs to experience the groundbreaking benefits of our units in improving life onboard, maximizing time on the water, and simplifying installation and maintenance."
Stabilization technology company Smartgyro currently offers a full range of gyro stabilizers, consisting of the SG20, SG40, SG60 and SG80 models for boats up to 80ft, with further units under development.
The outstanding innovation of the stabilizers is the cutting-edge modular mechanical design, ensuring the range is unique to the market as the only gyro units that can be serviced, maintained and assembled directly inside the boat. Time spent on maintenance and vessel downtime is minimized, with new design opportunities for builders and increased potential for installation in vessels with small access spaces. Ideal for both new builds and refit installations, the SG series also features design innovations within the control electronics, braking system, liquid cooling system and vacuum enclosure.
Smartgyro is now backed by strategic partner Yanmar and its companies, including Vetus, Maxwell and Flexofold.
