Trim Tabs

A revolution

We’re proud to present Zipwake, the new, Dynamic Trim-Control System that’s set to revolutionise the boat world. Featuring an advanced, intuitive control system and a stunning new innovative design, Zipwake delivers a more comfortable ride, better performance and improved fuel consumption – whatever the conditions.

Zipwake, the world’s first inexpensive dynamic trim control system, incorporates a state of the art series of durable, fast-acting interceptors, eliminating the well-known trim problems of planing and semi-planing boats. The system is fully automatic and significantly enhances performance, fuel economy, comfort and safety when accelerating, turning or running in a seaway

We are proud to present our latest ”world’s first” - mass produced V-shaped interceptors. They make the successful Series S even more versatile and highly competitive. V-shaped interceptors for centreline mounting are perfect for filling the gap between twin outboards or sterndrives, as well as dual propeller tunnels.

The four V-shaped models cover deadrise angles effectively between 11 to 24 degrees.

 V-shaped centerline mounted interceptors can be included in new installations, or retro-fitted to already installed systems. 

The modular design enables boat designers to develop their own novel applications, e.g. in multihulls or stepped high- speed craft.

 ALL IN A BOX

 A Kit Box includes all parts needed to install a Dynamic Trim Control System with one pair of fast-acting straight interceptors. There are four different Kit Boxes, one for each interceptor length.

Any base installation can be expanded with up to two extra pairs of Series S interceptors, thus allowing a total of six interceptors without any need for additional connectors or power supply.

 KEY FEATURES

  • COMFORT AND SAFETY

    Dynamically eliminates uncomfortable and dangerous boat pitch and roll.

  • PERFORMANCE AND FUEL ECONOMY

    Automatically minimizes wave resistance and saves fuel.

  • INTUITIVE AND PRECISE CONTROL

    Innovative 3D controls provide unmatched control of running trim, heel or heading.

  • DURABLE AND EFFECTIVE

    Patented series of durable fast-acting interceptors provide supreme lift force characteristics.

  • COMPLETE AND COMPETITIVE

    All-inclusive mass-produced modular design provides built-in quality, simple installation and easy expansion, whilst making the system affordable.


    • MORE EFFICIENT LIFT

      Near full beam interceptor arrangements are much more efficient at making lift compared to trim tabs with narrow span.

    • LESS DRAG

      Zipwake’s interceptor blade extends just 30 mm, whereas trim tabs often project 150 mm reflecting substantial drag.

    • 5 TIMES FASTER ACTUATION

      Zipwake’s blade stroke takes 1.5 seconds, outperforming conventional trim tabs by at least a factor of 5.

    • LESS WAKE

      Interceptors provide more effective trim control creating less waves which directly leads to better fuel economy.
