For low-speed cruising and semi-displacement yachts up to 30 metres
You cannot compare the MagnusMaster with other conventional stabilisation systems due to its technical innovation and better results. This latest generation of rotor stabilisers provides roll damping at low speeds of 3 to 12 knots on yachts up to 30 metres. At speeds above 12 knots, the Magnus effect no longer increases and therefore the DMS MagnusMaster automatically retracts.
When retracted, the rotors remain largely within the turbulent boundary layer of the vessel, meaning resistance is negligible.
It is a work of high-quality technology based on a universally acknowledged law of nature: the Magnus effect, that works in both liquid and air, was discovered and documented by Heinrich Magnus. DMS Holland has been able to optimise this effect by developing and applying advanced new techniques. Would you like to know more about the Magnus effect? Click here for further information.
DMS Holland has been able to optimise this effect by developing and applying advanced new techniques. To guarantee durability and continuity, the system uses electronic components from the well-known German brand Lenze, including electric motors, displays, drives and servo motors.
DMS MagnusMaster Touchscreen
There are a number of significant advantages of the MagnusMaster over conventional fin stabilisers:
As the effectiveness of the rotors is already very noticeable at low speeds, the risk of seasickness is minimal.
The innovative system drive ensures far fewer moving parts, resulting in reduced noise level. The MagnusMaster is simply very quiet.
The control of the system is user-friendly and can be integrated into the onboard system. Operation is simple via an easy-to-read full-colour touch screen.
The MagnusMaster has been developed for your convenience.
Improved roll damping
Roll damping with the MagnusMaster is much more effective when the yacht is at speeds of 3 to 12 knots. The MagnusMaster is suitable for yachts up to 30 metres.
Minimal risk of breakdown
The MagnusMaster is fully electric and directly driven, eliminating the need for a fan belt. Maintenance-free bearings are used around the shafts. DMS has kept the technology as simple as possible, so that hydraulics, pumps, cylinders and pressure pipes are not necessary. This makes leaks and other hydraulic-related malfunctions, as well as unpleasant noise, a thing of the past.
Your MagnusMaster stabilisers do their job worry-free, safely, quietly and very effectively.
Very compact and retractable
The entire system is electrically retractable, preventing damage in shallow water. When retracted, the rotors remain within the turbulent boundary layer of the hull and resistance is therefore negligible, producing a favourable effect on fuel consumption. When retracted, they are almost impossible to damage during transport.
Because the rotors do not have any steering effect, the positioning — unlike with traditional fins — can be freely determined and a suitable place can always be found to install the very shallow and compact electric motor. Loss of space is therefore kept to a minimum and major renovations in the engine room are not necessary.
Safe and considered
At DMS, the safety of people on board is key. That is why the rotors are automatically retracted when the vessel’s engine is put into neutral or the drive drops out. This prevents damage during maneuvering and mooring at a quay, lock, harbour or around other vessels and safety is guaranteed.
We would not have dared to do that without the MagnusMaster
“On the way to Den Bosch for the installation of the MagnusMaster stabilisation system we had wind force 5 and the boat pitched and rolled so badly that the heavy helmsman seat slid back and forth. On the way back we had wind force 7-8. Had we not just had the MagnusMaster installed, we would never have dared to have done that. Then came the surprise: Julia went nicely over a 3-4 metre wave. With the stabilisers on, the boat did not make any form of rolling motion. We are so pleased and feel so safe now that we no longer miss the keel of a sailing boat. My compliments and congratulations to DMS Holland. We will always continue to recommend them and MagnusMaster.”

A solid, fantastic working stabilization system
“After 6 years of sailing on the Mediterranean Sea with our sailing yacht, we were quite used to it. But now, on a motorboat, it is a different matter. When we want to go to Terschelling it becomes tiresome, always having to catch the oil lamp, the coffee cups and even the Christmas tree once we start rolling. Even I have already fallen from the helmsman chair. That’s when we thought, there has to be a different way to do this. After comparing various different systems, we came across DMS Holland who have developed a solid, fantastic working stabilisation system.”

MagnusMaster is functional and easy to maintain
“What we, as a shipyard, find a real advantage of the MagnusMaster system, is the fact that it is retractable. You can place it anywhere below water, you don’t need hydraulics or such like, it is functional, easy to maintain, not complicated and anybody can use it. You press the button and it works. An additional advantage of the MagnusMaster is that you can also stabilise the boat at low speeds, which is of course particularly nice for a displacer!”
