Retractable Fin Stabilizers, Type S
Our retractable Simplex-Compact fin stabilizers provide an ideal solution for many kinds of merchant vessels, such as ferries, cruise ships and yachts.
For vessels with a low to medium service speed and a demand for high roll reduction performance, we have developed a special tail flap which increases the roll reduction efficiency up to 15% compared with conventional two-part fin stabilizers. This so-called Ultra High Lift Fin is protected by an international patent.
