Smartgyro Shows Ongoing Commitment to Sportfishing Community

Sponsorship of Carolina Boat Builder and MidAtlantic Billfish Tournaments Announced

As a leading global supplier of stabilization solutions for sportsfishing vessels, Smartgyro is delighted to announce its ongoing support for the sportfishing community through its sponsorship of two key tournaments on the competitive US angling calendar. Smartgyro will attend both the events, showcasing their innovative stabilization systems to boat owners, boat builders and anglers from around the world who will be participating in the exciting competitions.

Sportsfishing demands precision, safety, and stability and marine stabilization systems are fast becoming a must-have onboard any serious competitive vessel. Smartgyro’s systems significantly reduce boat roll and pitch, providing a stable platform even in rough waters to allow fishermen to focus on their sport without the distraction and discomfort caused by an unstable vessel. In recent years with advances in sonar technology to support anglers in locating and catching fish more effectively, marine stabilization systems play an even more crucial role as this technology requires a steady platform to function optimally. Boat builders and owners investing in high end sonar technology also need to understand the best options for stabilization solutions as part of this process in a bid to become as competitive as possible and achieve optimum performance.

“We are thrilled to support the sportfishing community with our cutting-edge stabilization technology,” said Bob Walker, Smartgyro Technical Sales Manager. “Our mission is to enhance the safety and enjoyment for both amateur and professional anglers, and our products are perfectly designed to provide the stability needed for competitive sportfishing. The modular design of Smartgyro systems ensures that installation onto any type and size of sportfishing vessel is made simple. With its clever design, ongoing maintenance is made easy ensuring boats require minimal downtime and can continue on with their calendar of tournaments and events, whatever they may be.”

There are many benefits to installing a marine stabilization unit other than merely enhanced fishing performance. Through minimizing the impact of waves and rough waters, a Smartgyro unit can also reduce the risk of injury and fatigue among fishermen, allowing for longer, safer and more enjoyable participation in tournaments and competitions.

Boat owners and builders have the chance to explore Smartgyro’s stabilization options at two upcoming tournaments. Next month, Smartygyro will be at the Carolina Boat Builder’s Tournament – Manteo, NC (Oregon Inlet/OBX) July 24-27, 2024. This event regularly attracts around 40-50 boats, primarily custom builds so the event provides the perfect opportunity for boatbuilders to fully explore Smartgyro’s range of gyroscopic systems that deliver maximum anti roll technology. The strong community that has built up over many years to develop modern sportfishing in this region demands the best cutting-edge technology and equipment that can be relied upon, accompanied by the expertise from innovative companies such as Smartgyro who are familiar with and understand the community.

The popular MidAtlantic Tournament – Cape May, NJ August 20-25, 2024 averages around 200 boats, with a high value cash prize at stake at the end of 5 days of thrilling competitive fishing. Smartgyro’s representatives will be on hand at the event with advice on stabilization options for the typical 40-90 feet boats that compete. Smartgyro’s dedication to quality and customer satisfaction has made it a trusted partner within the sportfishing community, known for delivering reliable and effective solutions that meet the evolving needs of modern anglers.

“We very much look forward to connecting with passionate boat owners, boat builders and fishing enthusiasts at both these events." continued Bob Walker. “Beyond the tournaments, Smartgyro remains dedicated to providing continuous support to the angling community and fostering a culture of safer and more enjoyable sportfishing experiences.”

By consistently developing and refining their gyro stabilizers, Smartgyro aims to become an integral part of anglers' pursuits worldwide. As part of its ongoing commitment to innovation and excellence, Smartgyro continues to invest in research and development to improve its marine stabilization products.

Come and visit Smartgyro at either of the above tournaments where our experts are on hand to answer any questions about our stabilization systems.
