The first rotor system featuring zero speed functionality has been installed on board of MY Vanguard. The sea trial, just off the the Turkish coast, saw MY Vanguard accompanied by a school of dolphins. In close collaboration with the architect Dincer Dinc and DMS Holland, Naval Yachts in Turkey installed the system. MY Vanguard was originally built at the Wheeler Shipyard in New York for the US navy and then went on to be used by the US Coast Guard. In 2007, she was converted and refitted in to a motor yacht by RMK Shipyard in Istanbul. In order to improve the onboard experience and sailing comfort, with charter guests in mind as well, MY Vanguard‘s owner took the decision to have the yacht equipped with stabilizers. The relative ease of installation and the fact that the rotors can be installed at a position of choice were influential factors in the owner’s decision to choose RotorSwing .
