Seakeeper, which makes motion-control devices for boats 230 feet and smaller, has introduced the Seakeeper 3DC, which the company says is the marine industry’s first-ever battery-powered gyro.

The $29,900 unit is meant for boats 30 to 40 feet length overall that weigh 10 tons or less.

The Seakeeper 3DC runs solely off DC power, which means boats without a generator can enjoy the stability of a gyro system without having to install a generator to power it.

Estimated roll reduction: 70 percent to 90 percent, according to Seakeeper.
