Demand for Seakeeper’s line of gyro stabilizers is expanding.

Seakeeper is expanding its assembly facility by 50 percent. The maker of gyro stabilizer systems increased shipments last year by more than 50 percent over 2016. Sales on units for vessels under 50 feet alone increased 130 percent year over year.

Seakeeper expanded their Mohnton, Pennsylvania assembly facility by 50 percent and created 12 new production lines. The company expects to be able to ship more than 6,000 units per year. Growing not only in demand but also in size, Seakeeper added 25 new positions in 2017 as well as 27 dealers to its global network.

The Seakeeper 3 is designed for boats from 30' to 39' (9.14 m to 11.8 m).

“This was a strong year for our team,” said Seakeeper Chief Operating Officer, Andrew Semprevivo. “We’re a growing company that values its employees, vendors and customers alike.”

2017 saw the release of two new products:

  • The Seakeeper 3, the first DC-powered gyro, began shipping in April for boats from 30' to 39' (9.14 m to 11.8 m). Its design won the Innovation Award for Mechanical Systems at The International Boatbuilders Exhibition & Conference (IBEX) in October.
  • The company introduced the Seakeeper 6 in July for boats from 40' to 49' (12.3 m to 14.9 m). The model has 20 percent more performance than its predecessor, the Seakeeper 5, in the same footprint, according to the manufacturer.
