Having started this year as a sponsor of “Amicale Grand Banks”, we have received an initial order from Kremer Nautic for a Grand Banks. A RotorSwing system will be fitted shortly in to a cruising Grand Banks 53 Aleutian. As this is a fast cruising yacht, a RotorSwing RS 140/1000 with ‘Rake’ function will be installed. With the ‘Rake’ functionality, the rotors can be set at an angle of 45 ° enabling the vessel to benefit from optimal roll reduction whilst at sailing at speeds of 10 to 16 knots. At higher speeds, the rotors are retracted back against the hull to minimize resistance.
