Introducing the new Maxwell retractable vertical capstan

Introducing the new Maxwell retractable vertical capstan

Superyacht sailboat and motor yacht owners have long desired a robust capstan that is capable of being
retracted, when not in use, in order to provide an uncluttered deck area; whether it be located on the
foredeck or installed in the mid ship and/or stern areas of a vessel.
Maxwell has developed an inspired solution which allows for a retractable unit every bit as functional and strong as a non-retractable capstan.
The entire Maxwell Retractable Vertical Capstan (RVC) has been designed not only for superb functionality,
but with the aim that aesthetics aboard any Superyacht are also paramount.
The top of the capstan drum is pleasing to the eye and has been patterned to provide a non-skid surface when flush with the deck, in
the fully “DOWN” position.
Operation of the Maxwell RVC, which performs above the exacting performance criteria of the conventional
Maxwell VC4000 capstan, is as simple and straightforward as any conventional capstan.
Adjustment and maintenance of the RVC is equally simple, utilising a basic tool kit with minimal disassembly of the unit.

VEEM Gyro Stabilizers at the Genoa Boat Show

The Veem Gyro stabilizers range are the best choice ever for superyachts.

The range manufactured by the Australian Company will be exhibited at the upcoming Genoa Boat Show by Saim, Gyro exclusive sales agent across Central European Regions.

The Veem Gyro models represent an important step in gyro performance for superyachts an provide exceptional roll stabilisation solution for yachts from 130’.

The range currently includes two models: the VEEM Gyro 120 (120 kNm) and VEEM Gyro 260 (260 kNm). They can both be installed on new building and on already sailing yachts. The model choice depends on the level of stabilisation desired, the vawe environment and on boat features.

VEEM Gyros can also work seamlessfly with other motion stabilisation systems, autopilot , dynamic positioning without any software interfacing. Easy maintenance; only electrical power and cooling seawater are required for installation.

VEEM’s Gyrostabilisers are actively controlled vertical axis gyro stabilizers and deliver class-leading rolling motion attenuation while at zero speed or underway, with up to a 95 per cent reduction achievable through the use of powerful flywheels running under vacuum, and VEEM’s patented ‘Smart Torque’ advanced control software.

Smart Torque is designed to maximise roll reduction across almost all weather conditions, while guaranteeing safe operation in even the most powerful environments. With the active control system a smaller unit can provide the same performance as a larger passive gyro system.
