Regal installs the Seakeeper gyrostabilizer at or on the 53’s center of buoyancy to maximize its effect. Our Seakeeper seriously reduced roll not only when our test boat was at rest but also when she was traveling along at slo-mo speeds. In point of fact, we found that our unit cut the tendency to roll in a beam sea to virtually nothing, a finding that very much impressed the Brathunes. Does it make much noise? Nope!
Meeting the needs of boaters in the U.S. has some builders around the world scratching their heads, but not Rio Yachts. This Italian builder knows what works and what doesn’t, and adds a creative touch and fine finish to differentiate its product from lots of other boats out there.
Have a look and see what you think. ▶
