We were very impressed in Cannes last week to witness the international debut of CMC Marine’s new family of ultra compact electric stabilisers, formally released as the Waveless series. Once the journalists had finished, ourselves, Marlin Marine Services and other fellow trade representatives received an in-depth technical presentation. Waveless by CMC Marine is designed for mid to large-size boats of 12 meters in length and up, featuring the same technology that has made CMC Marine stabilizers a benchmark on the market. The smallest – by CMC Marine model has on-board dimensions of 38 cm in diameter and 22 cm in height.

“By transferring our extensive know-how and manufacturing experience to this new family of stabilizers, CMC Marine aims to solve the problem of yacht rolling and pitching caused by wave motion and moving weights, improving on-board comfort,” said CMC Marine Founder and Chairman Alessandro Cappiello.

Straight away, this series’ main point of difference is staggering. The internal space requirements of these stabilisers is tiny compared to hydraulic, and much smaller than the equivalent DC electric as well. This means it will be much easier to find a suitable place to mount them on a vessel, and less intrusion into guest or machinery space. They are perfect as a retrofit option.
