The VEEM Gyro 145 (or VG145) is an evolution from the VG120 model. The VG145 is 20% more powerful in stabilizing effect than the VG120 model, but contained within exactly the same envelope size and weight as the VG120, making the stabilizing torque density of this product a real game changer for motor yachts around 30m (100’) in length.

The VG145 has been enabled by new bearing technology that has allowed VEEM to spin the flywheel in the gyro stabilizer 20% faster whilst maintaining excellent service life, and drawing no more power from the vessel it is installed in. With internal space in a luxury motor yacht becoming ever more valuable, this improvement in stabilizing torque density offers shipbuilders and yacht owners more for less.

A key development focus for this product was capture the increased performance whilst maintaining exceptional service life and long intervals between over-haul, without increasing the size or weight of the new model over the VG120. In order to do this VEEM has made judicious material substitutions for critical components. The base frame structure is now 100% machined from high strength marine grade solid aluminium plate.

Energy Saving

Energy saving mode for quiet night time operation. Automatic power reduction in small waves. Lower fuel burn, higher speeds, and increased range as compared with zero speed fins.

Fast Spin-up and Spin-Down

60 minute spin-up.
20 minute spin-down.

Whisper Quiet

Generating an extremely low 66 dBa, the VEEM Gyros have reset the sound level benchmark for gyro stabilisers.Mounting outside of the engine room is a realistic option.

Web Based Remote Support

All VEEM Gyros are able to be web connected to allow remote phone support, data download and diagnostics. This can be managed at VEEM’s Support Base and/or by the owners team.

Diamond Hard Ruggedness

Continued safe operation as waves become large. Due to rugged construction, high pressure hydraulics, smart self-regulating software to protect against damage without shutting down.

More Speed… Less Fuel

Choosing a VEEM Gyro instead of Zero Speed fins almost always comes with the gift of increased max speed, and reduced fuel burn. The weight of the gyro balanced against the drag of the fins is a net gain for the yacht.
