Retractable fin stabilizer, Type Z

Superb stability for yachts of all sizes

SKF Marine’s retractable Type Z fin stabilizers are precision-designed to reliably minimize roll at anchor and when under way, making them your natural choice for vessel stability.

Thanks to our patented swept design, the single piece fin can be retracted completely within the hull to ensure safe and secure storage.

  • Rapid response for excellent stabilizing performance in all conditions, using a silent and efficient accumulator-supported hydraulic system
  • Easily installed, operated and monitored
  • State-of-the art touch-screen controls, with easy-to-read display
  • Available in a wide range of sizes to suit your vessel

The fin stabilizer has a powerful and compact rotary vane actuator, with minimal moving parts for reliability and ultra-low maintenance. Its impressive 120° range of operation is much greater than you’ll find on conventional stabilizers, so you can set the fins to exactly suit your vessel and the current tide, swell and weather conditions. Torque stays constant, whatever the angle you choose.

The state-of-the-art graphical user interface (GUI) features interactive displays and dashboards that are highly intuitive and easy to use – even remotely. Operational features include preventative maintenance functionality, data logging, and integrated troubleshooting assistance.

SKF Marine Type Z stabilizers are compliant with SOLAS and MARPOL 73/78 convention specifications and Vessel General Permit (VGP) 2013 regulations.
