The VEEM Gyro 260 is the most advanced and powerful gyrostabiliser available for medium sized super yachts and commercial workboats. As a single unit installation, it is suitable for vessels with displacement between 100 – 300 tonnes. For super yachts, this is roughly equivalent to 30 – 40 m length. Multiple units can be installed for larger vessels.
The VG260 delivers a massive max rated stabilising torque of 260kNm. This is significantly higher (like 3.5 times) than its nearest competitor on the market. Unlike its competitors, all maintenance tasks on the VG260 can be completed whilst the unit remains in place in the vessel, without the need to remove major components. Due to it’s rugged construction and clever software, the VG260 is able to operate efficiently in small waves, but continue operating as wave environments grow to rough (when you need it most). Installation is simple, saving huge amounts of vessel integration cost.

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.
Generating an extremely low 66 dBa (VG120 under low loading conditions), 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.
