The European Patent Office has officially and definitively accepted the CMC Marine European patent application request regarding electrical fin stabilization system, named Stabilis Electra. The patent has been issued for an "Automatic system for anti-roll stabilization of watercraft" and is valid for all the European countries, for a 20 years period.
CMC Marine is now the only company authorized to produce, distribute and sell the above mentioned stabilization system within Europe, including the necessary custom protections.
Since the introduction of the Stabilis Electra prototype at the Genoa Boat Show 2008 the market had responded positively. In early 2009, CMC Marine was awarded with the Qualitec Technology Award 2009 special mention and at the same time the first orders were given and in 2010 the first boat equipped with the Stabilis Electra, a Sanlorenzo 82, were launched.
