Seakeeper, Inc. received an Edison Award for their Seakeeper 2 gyro stabilizer. The Edison Awards honor excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human- centered design and innovation.
The Seakeeper 2 gyro, specially designed for boats from 27 -32 feet long, was chosen as a finalist in the Transportation Technology category earlier in the year and then received a gold award, the highest available, at the actual awards ceremony.
Products were judged on their concept, value, delivery and impact and finalists were chosen by a steering committee and small group of industry experts where necessary. The finalists were then submitted to a panel of more than 3,000 judges comprised of senior business executives and academics who then cast ballots for gold, silver and bronze winners.
“We’ve been relentless at working to change a fundamental human experience by making boating more accessible and enjoyable for everyone, and the introduction of our smallest product, the Seakeeper 2, is a huge step in realizing that mission,” said Seakeeper President & CEO Andrew Semprevivo. “We’ve been pushing ourselves every day for 11 years to bring our best innovations to market, and we’re honored to be recognized as a leader and proud to stand next to the other incredible Edison Awards winners this year.”
The award was presented at the Edison Awards’ annual black-tie event at the New York Academy of Sciences in New York City.
