Seakeeper Deck Mount Delivers a New Stabilization Option for Small Boats
With the new optional Deck Mount, Seakeeper has made it easier for the owners of 23- to 30-plus-foot boats to use its smallest gyro-stabilizer—Seakeeper 1. Many smaller boats don’t have an enclosed space in the console or bilge to house a stabilizer, so Seakeeper created a new housing that can mount beneath an open-framed leaning post.
The new housing weighs about 25 pounds and is made from fiberglass with a Lexan window. It requires a 2.75-inch diameter hole in the deck for wiring.

The company says the Deck Mount should be installed by a dealer at the same time as the Seakeeper 1 unit, which runs on 12V DC power and weighs 365 pounds. The stabilizer itself costs $16,500 (not including installation), and the Deck Mount costs $1,800.
Thanks to modern advances in boatbuilding, onboard systems and technology, the sport of cruising is poised for some exciting times ahead.
