Last month the DMS team made their debut visit to the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in Australia. It didn’t take long to confirm, with two orders in the bag, that there is a very large market for the MagnusMaster stabilisation system on the other side of the world. The first order, to be installed on board of MY Dream Catcher, was confirmed within just three days. Dream Catcher is a beautiful 100-ft Sport Fisher weighing in at 130 tonnes and can achieve a top speed of no less than 29 knots. This aluminum boat was built at Burger in the USA in 2001 and was delivered under the name Sarabeth. The boat’s current hydraulic rotary stabilisation system with Koop Nautic control system, previously installed by Quantum, will be replaced by an electrically driven MagnusMaster 4 rotor system. “We were very satisfied with the performance of the existing system until we were told that there were no more parts available for repairs. Our search for another rotor system soon led us in the direction of DMS. Dream Catcher is often chartered to people who, despite the tough nature of this sport, attach great importance to comfort. Good stabilisers are therefore indispensable for the crew and guests. We mainly sail around 8 knots which is the ideal speed when we are fishing. DMS is going to adjust its software specifically for Dream Catcher so that we can keep the fish stable on the hook even when reversing – how incredible is that!” says owner Ron Pattenden of Blue Marlin Lodge in Vanuatu (www.bluemarlinlodgevanuatu). com). The system will be installed under the supervision of DMS Asia Pacific & DMS Holland at GCCM (Gold Coast City Marina & Shipyard) in Australia. MY Dream Catcher will be out on the water with her new MagnusMaster 4 rotor system from the beginning of July 2019.
