Revolutionizing Comfort at Sea: The Seakeeper Ride System Enhances Boating Experience


In the dynamic world of boating, achieving a balance of comfort and stability is paramount. Modern Yachts is excited to revolutionize the maritime industry with the introduction of the Seakeeper Ride System—a breakthrough technology that promises to enhance these crucial elements, ensuring all on board enjoy a smoother and more pleasurable journey at sea.

Understanding the Seakeeper Ride System

Innovative Design and Functionality

At the heart of the Seakeeper Ride is its state-of-the-art control technology, strategically mounted on the boat’s transom below the waterline. This advanced system is designed not only to react to changes but to anticipate them. It features custom-designed inertial sensors paired with sophisticated software that accurately reads the boat’s movement in real time across three axes: pitch, roll, and yaw. The system then instantaneously deploys rotary blades to create corrective lift at the transom, effectively smoothing out unwanted motion.

Superior Vessel Attitude Control

The Seakeeper Ride stands out with its unmatched responsiveness to environmental conditions. Its proprietary rotary blades adjust at a phenomenal rate of 100 times per second, adapting swiftly to the ocean’s unpredictability. This rapid-response mechanism is capable of mitigating up to 70% of pitch and roll caused by wave action, establishing it as a pioneering Vessel Attitude Control System in the marine industry.

Enhancing Your Boating Experience

Unprecedented Smoothness on Water

With the Seakeeper Ride, embarking on a boating adventure becomes a markedly tranquil experience. Its ability to adapt instantly to varying sea conditions not only elevates safety but also ensures comfort for all passengers, allowing everyone aboard to relish their maritime excursion free from the disturbances of rough waves.

Features of the Seakeeper Ride System

Rapid Actuation

The system’s rotary blades can move at an impressive speed of up to 300 mm per second, consistently making adjustments at a rate of 100 times per second. This high-speed actuation is energy efficient, consuming just 7-10 Amps of power, enhancing both performance and sustainability.

Full Control Underway

By managing all motions—pitch, roll, and yaw—the Seakeeper Ride offers a degree of stability previously unachievable in most marine vessels. This comprehensive control ensures a consistently stable and enjoyable boating experience.

Effortless Operation

The Seakeeper Ride System operates intuitively without the need for manual intervention. It autonomously predicts and neutralizes motion, allowing boaters to focus on the pleasure of the journey, free from operational hassles.

Reliability and Durability

Seakeeper’s drivetrain is encapsulated in a fully sealed, greased environment, safeguarding it against saltwater exposure and enhancing its longevity and dependability.

Simple Installation

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Seakeeper Ride System and how does it work?

The Seakeeper Ride System is an innovative marine technology designed to stabilize a boat’s motion on the water. It employs a set of mounted controllers on the boat’s transom, below the waterline. The system utilizes custom-designed inertial sensors along with sophisticated software to monitor the boat’s movement across three axes: pitch, roll, and yaw. Based on this real-time data, it dynamically deploys rotary blades to generate lift and counteract these motions, significantly smoothing out the ride.

How does the Seakeeper Ride improve safety and comfort at sea?

The Seakeeper Ride System enhances safety by stabilizing the boat and reducing sudden and unexpected motions that can lead to accidents or discomfort. By significantly reducing up to 70% of pitch and roll, the system allows for a steadier platform, which helps prevent falls and injuries. It also increases comfort by minimizing the jerky movements caused by waves, resulting in a more pleasant and enjoyable boating experience for everyone onboard.

Can the Seakeeper Ride be installed on any boat?

The Seakeeper Ride System is highly versatile and can be installed on a wide range of boats. It is designed to be easily fitted onto most transoms, both on new boats and as an aftermarket addition. However, the specific suitability and installation process can vary depending on the size, type, and design of the vessel. It’s recommended to consult with a Seakeeper professional to assess the compatibility with your particular boat.

What are the energy requirements for the Seakeeper Ride System?

The Seakeeper Ride System is engineered to be energy-efficient. It operates on a power-dense rotary design that requires only 7-10 Amps of power. This moderate energy consumption makes it suitable for continuous use without significantly impacting the boat’s overall power reserves, ensuring that energy usage remains manageable during longer trips.

How does the Seakeeper Ride System maintain its reliability and durability?

Reliability and durability are central to the design of the Seakeeper Ride System. The system’s drivetrain is completely sealed within a dry and greased environment, which protects it from exposure to harsh marine elements, particularly saltwater. This sealing prevents corrosion and wear, extending the system’s lifespan and maintaining its performance over time. Regular maintenance and inspections are recommended to ensure optimal operation throughout its use.


The Seakeeper Ride System from Modern Yachts marks a significant leap forward in boating technology, offering unmatched comfort and stability at sea. By integrating this system, boat owners can transform their maritime experiences, ensuring each journey is as enjoyable as it is smooth.
