“I was very surprised with how well it worked and how instantly it worked. From being on the vessel for 3 years, this has made a major improvement to the vessel.” – Mr Braeden Carruthers Captain – MY UMBRA

An experienced Australian yacht owner purchased a Damen YS 5009 to refit and meet his exacting requirements for long range cruising and exploration.

Of particular importance during the refit, was the requirement to reduce the roll in order to provide a comfortable, stable and safe platform for the vessel whilst underway, at anchor, undertaking helicopter operations from its dual heli pads, launching and recovering large tenders and hosting guests.

The vessel underwent a hull extension to enlarge the deck area to accommodate larger tenders and a beach club module. This provided the perfect opportunity to configure the aft compartment for the VG520SD.

An uncompromising adhesion to VEEM Marine’s installation guidelines and selecting suitable ancillary equipment for powering, cooling and controlling the Gyrostabilizer has resulted in a Gyrostabilizer that is easily accessible for inspection and maintenance, benefiting its reliability and longevity.

The project was successfully commissioned during sea trials off the coast of Western Australia where the VG520SD achieved an impressive >70 roll reduction.
