The technology behind the calming effect

A vessel at sea is influenced by pitch, sway, yaw, or heave movements, but the roll of a boat is by far the more dominant and uncomfortable motion. This is what all stabilizer systems work to reduce.

Up until now, boaters have had to choose between stabilization underway or at anchor. Additionally, traditional stabilizers have not been able to satisfy the desired roll reduction without increasing fin size, resulting in adverse side effects such as reduced speed or increased fuel consumption. 

The fact that Vector Fins™ stabilizers have both aspects covered may sound too good to be true. But let us demonstrate what you get when combining innovative technology and some good old physics: The fins' shape redirects the force direction and operates in an up-and-down motion, unlike flat fins that work with forces parallel to the hull angle. Effectively, more of the force benefits roll reduction, and less is wasted on yaw and sway.




By this multidirectional force angle, the leverage arm around the boat's rolling point also improves roll reduction by increasing the boat's physical resistance to water motion. Therefore with a smaller set of Vector Fins™, you will see improved results in drag, power consumption, internal space consumption, and mechanical load-bearing compared to a set of flat fins of greater size. Simply put, Vector Fins™ achieves more roll stabilization per fin size.
