The right company
For more than sixty years, NAIAD has been providing precision-machined parts for aerospace applications. Throughout the years, we have met the exacting requirements set forth by the Department of Defense, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, and Sikorsky Aircraft – among others.
In 1976, we first applied our manufacturing and engineering standards of excellence to marine science, introducing the revolutionary roll stabilization technology that galvanized the industry. From the onset, we forged strong, hands-on relationships with yacht designers, builders, and owners throughout the world. This direct dialogue has enabled us to continuously enhance our products’ performance and has led to many
other major advances, including the world’s first stabilization at zero speed technology, which we introduced in 1997.
Today, despite our size and global presence as the driving force in marine motion control,the key to our success remains unchanged. The relationship that you, as a client, will have with us will be built to last a lifetime.
A custom solution designed for you
State-of–the–art motion control systems and equipment for yachts of all sizes, including roll stabilizers, bow and stern thrusters, ride control and integrated hydraulic systems. Latest technology Stabilization at Anchor Systems designed to provide on- board comfort when at zero forward speed; remarkably effective and quiet. New build, retrofits and control conversions. Standard systems with custom solutions precisely attuned to the unique characteristics of your vessel. It is our ultimate goal to exceed your expectations by providing a quality solution at a fair price.

Naiad Dynamics, an international manufacturer of ship motion control technologies, announced the introduction of the first products in a new line of electric-powered stabilizer systems designed specifically for use on ships operating both AtSpeed® and AtRest®.
“These new stabilizers are a modern refinement of electric-powered stabilizers Naiad first developed for naval applications in 2008,” said John Venables, CEO of Naiad Dynamics. “We are now introducing these systems to the recreational and commercial marine markets alongside our complete range of proven hydraulic stabilizers to provide a choice for designers and builders who may prefer not to use hydraulics.”
The initial model E-525 is available with a 7.5 or 11 kW AC servo motor drive, and is designed for fin sizes ranging from 1.0 to over 3.5 square meters for vessels typically 35 to 50 meters in length. The company will roll out additional electric-powered systems through 2015 and 2016.
Naiad’s electric stabilizer eliminates the entire hydraulic system, reducing the number of installed components and the system’s overall complexity and weight, as well as eliminating installation costs associated with interconnecting fluid lines, all with no sacrifice in power and performance. Naiad’s electric servo motor-actuator design generates the same amount of force as two hydraulic cylinders used in an equivalent hydraulic stabilizer model.
Like all Naiad fin stabilizers, these new products are built with the highest-quality materials and workmanship. Major components are machined in-house to U.S. military standards in Naiad’s ISO 9001:2008 certified factory. Naiad systems have an unmatched reputation for durability in the tough marine environment, providing long product life with very low maintenance and total costs of ownership.
The systems’ well-proven heavy-duty tapered roller bearing assemblies are greased for life and sealed at the factory for easy installation, low maintenance and trouble-free operation.
A key safety feature of Naiad’s electric fin stabilizer design is the ability to center the fins manually and lock in place when the stabilizer is not being operated. Other key features include Naiad’s exclusive DATUM™ closed loop digital control system with adaptive self-tuning capability operating on a CANbus distributed network.
