Frequently asked questions

It is a computer controlled gyroscope that eliminates most boat roll, including the fatigue, anxiety and seasickness that goes with it. Because of this game changing effect, PR Nautica have successfuly installed over 30 Seakeeper units worldwide.
Typically, the Seakeeper weighs between 2 and 4% of boat weight, requires half or less the power of air conditioning, and fits in available space down in the after part of the hull. Nothing extends outside the hull and the Seakeeper is a small percentage of the overall volume of the boat.
Seakeepers are sutiable for most boats 30 feet and above. PR Nautica can install the best option on new vessels and as a retro project. Up to 20 tons, vessels 30-50′: Seakeeper 5 Up to 35 tons, vessels 50-65′: Seakeeper 9 Up to 70 tons, vessels 65-80′ : Seakeeper 16 Up to 100 tons, vessels 80-100′: Seakeeper 26 Greater than 100 tons, vessels >100′: Seakeeper 35

Yes, we can fit Seakeepers to both new vessels and aftermarket. The time of a retrofit installtion will vary depending on the Seakeeper and the model of the vessel. Typical installation time is 1-3 weeks. Get in touch for a custom quotation.
