Gillen Yacht Services, Inc, of Ft Lauderdale, Florida has been announced as one of the first dealers in the United States to sell and install the new Smartgyro gyroscopic stabilizers.

Bringing significant installation and performance benefits to the gyro stabilization marketplace, the sophisticated Smartgyro SG series incorporates unique features and technological advancements within its design to reduce downtime for the vessel and enhance onboard comfort and experience for boat owners, crew and family.

The new dealership is the latest partnership to be confirmed by marine gyro stabilization technology specialist Smartgyro S.r.l as the company extends and strengthens its global distribution network.

With access to some of the first units to be shipped to the country, yacht service and refit company Gillen Yacht Services is a key appointment in the important US market. The family-owned and operated business will use its engineering and technical expertise to focus on raising awareness about Smartgyro gyro stabilizers with customers and executing installations of the current SG40 and SG80 for boats over 48ft.

Dave Gillen, President of Gillen Yacht Services, said: "Smartgyro has solved many of the problems found in current gyro stabilization systems which should provide vastly superior customer satisfaction over the long haul."

Smartgyro's innovations include a revolutionary modular mechanical design which enables the compact stabilizers to be assembled directly inside the boat and serviced while onboard, minimizing time spent on maintenance, creating new design opportunities for builders and increasing the potential for installation in vessels with small access spaces.

Offering a lower spool-up time to stabilization than similar products, the Smartgyro unit makes less revolutions per minute to extend bearings' lifetime. The SG range also features cutting-edge developments within the control electronics, braking system, liquid-cooled system and vacuum enclosure to maximize roll reduction, performance and efficiency.

Established in 1993, Gillen Yacht Services today provides a one-stop shop for yacht repair, yacht refit and marine diesel repair solutions for a range of boats from sport fishing vessels to megayachts, guaranteeing a personalized service to its customer base in South Florida and beyond.

The Smartgyro SG range, which is ideal for both leisure boat owners and light duty commercial vessels, currently consists of the SG40 and SG80 models and will soon be expanded with the SG10 and SG20 gyro stabilizers for smaller boats.

Smartgyro is backed by strategic partner YANMAR and its companies, including VETUS, Maxwell and Flexofold.
