“We were on the way back to the Netherlands with our boat, a Jetten 50. As we were between Langeland and Kiel we encountered gusts of wind up to force 7 and waves 2 metres high, perpendicular to the boat. The ship turned out to be incredibly seaworthy. We surfed down the waves. Even in these tough circumstances, the rotor system we have on board reduced the sideways motion of the vessel down to zero.”
“I have already experienced a great deal of choppy water and waves with De Zwarte Ruiter. 2 weeks ago, during a weekend in Rotterdam, it was the Steam Power Event in Dordrecht and as a result, it was very busy on the water with speed boats, water taxis to / from Rotterdam and very choppy water. De Zwarte Ruiter was pretty keen to roll but she just couldn’t. It may well have cost money, but it’s worth it. My wife Cobie and I are of course very very happy with it. As I said from the beginning, it’s just like sailing on smooth tarmac.”
“We are delighted with the MagnusMaster stabilizers on board ‘Mette’, our Linssen range Cruiser 450. It is a system that we truly recommend everybody installs as it is simply extremely comfortable to sail with such stability. The boat stays on course and this is especially noticeable when we are sailing, for example, on the river Waal where there are a lot of commercial vessels. Yesterday we sailed on the Rhine where there was 27 knots of wind and tidal current. There were quite some waves and yet, my wife Annet, sat knitting away (or some such hobby!) and my cup of coffee just stayed right in its place! “
We have a lot of experience with installing stabilizers and cruising on open water. We are happy that Jonkers Yachts has been appointed by DMS Holland as a dealer and installer of MagnusMaster. In Zeeland a lot of Linssen yachts are already cruising with a rolldamping system. Welcome on Board!
“Steeler Yachts recommands the MagnusMaster stabilizing system of DMS Holland. Due to her retractable system, this stabiliser is perfect for offshore yachts that also intend to cruise on inland (small, tiny and shallow) waters. After one year of operation on the Steeler NG57 S we can confirm the excellent performance of the system.” In Januari 2017 Steeler Yachts will install a MagnusMaster system on the first Steeler NG50 S which will sail both, inshore and offshore.”
Since April 24th 2018, the day on which they were put into operation, we (my wife Gundula and I) have been sailing with the MagnusMaster stabilisers along the west coast of Turkey and the Greek islands from Kos to Samos. For DMS Holland, overseeing the installation from the Netherlands of a MagnusMaster system on an existing yacht (‘Mare-n’ was launched in May 2002) located in another country entailed a lot of work but the result was worth it. The difference between on and off is remarkable, especially in waves port or starboard quarter. It takes the ‘un’ out of uncomfortable.
Wilco Kanders to be the face of DMS France
As indicated in previous news, DMS is working hard to spread its wings abroad. The first step in this process took place in April this year when DMS Germany was established. Less than a month later, DMS Holland reached a similar collaboration with Wilco Kanders, who from now on will be representing DMS France. Wilco […]
