Having originally started as a sponsor of “Amicale Grand Banks” in 2014, we have since received the first order for a Grand Banks from Kremer Nautic. In early March, a RotorSwing system was installed on board of the already cruising Grand Banks 53 Aleutian. Due to it being a fast cruising yacht, the installed rotor system includes the ‘Rake’ function. 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.
