Proper Testing and R&D Drives Improved Technology

Quantum Marine Stabilizers

Quantum Marine Stabilizers, is an international leader in stabilization technology for underway and Zero Speed ™ performance. Quantum’s cutting-edge technology is firmly rooted in science, engineering, and performance testing and known for providing the best stabilization systems for luxury yachts, commercial vessels,  and international navies. Achieving great results requires precise model testing.  For decades, Quantum has been engaged in model testing and though most models are built to the exact custom specifications, Quantum has their own model to conduct regular testing, always committed to refine the product line. The results are carefully analyzed and evaluated for redesign, updates and modifications.  

Sound & Vibration Testing


Testing was initiated by Quantum’s R&D Department and administered by J&A Enterprises, a sound and vibration consultancy firm. The testing criteria included a Quantum designed, 75 kW HPU with stringent noise and vibration requirements, targeting airborne and structural noise. The results were unprecedented, airborne noise below 75 dB/structural noise below 65 dB.
