MagLift™- based on the Magnus effect: a rotating cylinder generates lift proportional to the speed and direction of rotation. Quantum’s patented design uses hydraulic power to deploy and rotate composite cylinders directed by our SMC 4000 control for roll reduction at anchor, and at lower speeds. MAGLIFT™ is retractable for higher speed passages, and ideal applications include sport fishing yachts, low-speed explorers (8-14 knot), expedition vessels, and large yachts (upward of 91m/300 ft).
The MagLift™ system has been installed on MY ECLIPSE which at 162.5 m is the World’s
largest Mega Yacht. Sea trials have been completed and both the vessel and its management
are very happy with the results. Please see our Testimonials page for further information on
this and other customers of Quantum-Med Marine.
Below is a video taken at the HSVA Tank Test for MY ECLIPSE and shows the actual HSVA
results for roll reduction of this vessel.
