Retractable fin stabiliser systems play an important role in improving the all-important on board experience for passengers and crew. The one-piece fin is built of fabricated materials, with a modified NACA (North American Committee on Aeronautics) section to maximise lift properties and minimise drag, with a similar effect as flapped fins. Features include an innovative tilt ram attribute, which facilitates cylinder and seal maintenance without dry-docking, simplified crux assembly, improved hydraulic and lubrication systems, lower weight and a new fin extension-locking mechanism for improved safety. Neptune II offers optimal vessel performance with low ownership costs.
