WESMAR Stabilizers Create Loyal Repeat Customers

Captain Scott Nichols talks about the WESMAR stabilizer system on his 70-foot Hatteras Motoryacht...

In 2010 Captain Scott Nichols installed a WESMAR stabilizer system on his 70-foot Hatteras Motoryacht. He was so pleased with the system that when he purchased his new 85-foot Sea Force IX, custom fishing yacht, the RUMBERA, he wanted a WESMAR Stabilizer system installed on it as well.

Captain Scott contacted Bob Sentz at WESMAR who put him in touch with Brad Heard at Ramsay Marine Mechanical Services in Riviera Beach, Florida. Ramsay is a factory trained WESMAR dealer, highly qualified and highly capable.

Brad and company installed the popular new WESMAR DSP5000 system with hydraulically driven 9.5 square foot fins, with a 932 dual cylinder actuator. It was part of a complete refit at a boat yard in Stuart, Florida, just 30 minutes up the coast from Ramsay Marine Mechanical Services.

Ramsay is a full service company with 20,000 sq. feet of space for welding/fabrication, machining, mechanical and complete hydraulic repair. They also have extensive mobile capabilities including a satellite office/work shop and three trailers fully equipped with tooling so traveling to the yard in Stuart was no problem for them.

They installed WESMAR’s DSP5000, a completely digital system getting strong reviews for its quiet, precise stabilization in all sea states and at all speeds. It provides unmatched performance without adding to the weight of the boat and it is rugged and reliable with the best lift-to-drag ratios.
