Stabilizer SystemsGyro & Fin Stabilizer Systems


Controlling the roll of your boat, whether at anchor or while cruising, is one of the most dramatic improvements you can make to your boating experience. You only have to be sea sick once to understand the benefits of stabilization!

Carolina Bow Thruster (CBT) is able to specify and seamlessly install either fin or Quick Nautical gyroscopic stabilization systems. CBT also services all types and brands of stabilizers in the market.

Quick Gyroscope Stabilizer

The most technologically sophisticated and elegant solution for boat roll is the Quick computer controlled gyroscope.  Also, having no external stabilizers, Quick provides all of the stabilization benefits without any drag impact. Here is a video that explains how it operates:

CBT is an authorized Quick Nautical dealer that can expertly specify and install the complete line of Quick gyro stabilizer products.

The Quick Anti-Roll Gyro has the advantage of being air cooled versus water cooled.  This means that it is smaller and less complex to install than other gyro stabilizers. Nevertheless, the proper installation of a gyro system should only be performed only by experts with marine engineering background and experience. CBT has that type of knowledge, expertise and an innovative, industry leading, efficient gyro installation process that matches the brilliance of the Quick product.

Fin Stabilization Systems

Fin systems are still the optimal solution for many types of boat roll control applications.  Fins are a more cost effective option that provides many of the same roll control benefits as a gyroscope system.  Fins also occupy less space and are therefore applicable to more boat types.

CBT can specify the right system for your boat – optimize fin placement, assure structural integrity, minimize drag, optimize space used - and seamlessly install the fins, actuators, power pack and controls.
