Quality Boats HOLLAND GUIDE


The origins of the word ‘yacht’ Due to its relationship with water, shipbuilding has played a major role in the Dutch economy for centuries. In the Golden Age of the 1600 and 1700s, Holland’s large fleet of wooden ships dominated the oceans. It was at this time that wealthy residents started having their own ‘jacht’ built – the Dutch word for pleasure boat from which the international term ‘yacht’ is derived. Yachting literally and metaphorically had its origin in the Netherlands.

Conduct business with Dutch shipyards and yacht brokers and you’ll be struck by the inter-

New innovative stabilization system MagnusMaster even makes Neptune completely ‘re’-fit! Since before we can even remember, Neptune has been taming the wild waves of the seas with his span of audacious horses. But times have since changed. Neptune has hung up his trident. For he found, at long last, a worthy successor. One capable of taking on the seas. An innovative rotor system that controls the waves and ensures perfect stabilization. That is MagnusMaster. Compact - Colour Touch Screen - Fully CANbus System Extensive Diagnostic Capabilities - Maintenance Free Quick and Easy to Install All unique features of this cutting edge system. Features which, particularly its compact form, render it ideal for refit projects. And ‘re’-fit is exactly how Neptune himself is now feeling. Now that MagnusMaster is making sure that boats are calm upon the water, Neptune can finally go out on deck and concentrate on his other passion - perfecting his new found “swing”...

Antiroll: Technical Innovation, maximum cruising comfort AntiRoll has been developed by DMS Holland specifically for superyachts. It is an advanced roll damping system which is innovative and extremely functional thanks to its unique, dualaxis fin stabilizer which rotates whilst cruising and flaps at zero speed. It achieves optimum stabilization at both high speed and whilst at anchor. The high-aspect ratio fins ensure 50 to of the fins create a greater lift capacity. These fins can be retracted into the hull also rendering the AntiRoll system ideal for sailboats. AntiRoll

Roll Damping The RotorSwing® applies an ingenious system using the Magnus effect instead of fins or gyros. It consists of rapidly rotating cylinders which generate an enormous upward or downward damping force.

The RotorSwing® 140 includes many benefits such as: Patented RAKE® function (reduced drag) Silent operation (fully electric) Retractable (scarcely protruding parts) Superior damping from 3 knots upwards Fully automatic (simple operation with two buttons only) Superb following sea behavior

When a wave from Starboard tries to raise that side and starts a rolling motion to Portside, the RotorSwing® will react with a counterforce to correct this motion. RotorSwing® outperforms any other stabilizer system on the market and brings you dramatically improved comfort and additional safety onboard.
