As the brand targets further network expansion in the country, Italian-made Smartgyro exhibited at SCIBS 2022.

After growing the line-up of SG series gyroscopic units in recent months to encompass a wider variety of vessels, this year’s show marked the first opportunity for Smartgyro to highlight the full range to prospective partners and customers in the key Australian market.

YANMAR-backed Smartgyro is also stepping up its Australia expansion project to strengthen the dealer network and raise awareness among OEMs and boaters about the unique onboard maintenance and service benefits of its technologically advanced gyro stabilisers.

The Smartgyro units are already marketed and supplied in the country by Fluid in Motion Marine.

Exhibiting alongside sister company VETUS-Maxwell at Sanctuary Cove, Smartgyro displayed the SG40, for boats from 50 to 60-feet.

Current units also available are the SG20, SG60 and SG80, with further upcoming launches to be announced soon.


Pieter Feenstra, Sales Director North-Europe, APAC and America, Smartgyro said, “Since appointing PMS as our first dealer in Australia last year, Smartgyro’s presence in the country has grown substantially and we are working hard to develop new collaborations and build brand awareness.

“With two key product launches in 2021 – the SG20 and SG60 ­– we can now meet the needs of OEMs and the Australian boating community with units for vessels up to 80-feet, with full confidence that our innovative stabiliser solutions offer exceptional advantages.

“The Sanctuary Cove show was an important opportunity to meet with our industry colleagues, as well as new and current customers.”

The outstanding innovation of the Smartgyro stabilisers is the cutting-edge modular mechanical design, ensuring the range is unique to the market as the only gyro units that can be serviced, maintained and assembled directly inside the boat.

Time spent on maintenance and vessel downtime is minimised, with new design opportunities for builders and increased potential for installation in vessels with small access spaces.

Ideal for both new builds and refit installations, the SG series also features design innovations within the control electronics, braking system, liquid cooling system and vacuum enclosure.

Smartgyro is a gyro stabilisation technology company with a mission to elevate the entire boating experience with its complete range of advanced gyro stabilisers.

Ideal for new builds and refit installations on recreational powerboats and light-duty commercial vessels, the leading Smartgyro stabilisers offer significant performance, efficiency, installation and maintenance benefits for boat owners, vessel operators and boatbuilders.

With further units under development, the Smartgyro range consists of the SG20, SG40, SG60 and SG80, bringing boat stabilisation for vessels from 30 to more than 85-feet.

Founded in 2014 and based in La Spezia, Italy, Smartgyro is backed by strategic partner YANMAR and its companies, including VETUS, Maxwell and Flexofold.
