So-Pac are proud to announce market leading batteries 'Northstar' are now available in NZ
NorthStar Pure lead (99.99%) AGM engine start batteries deliver high CCA for superior cranking, unrivalled cycling, faster re-charge and longer life with minimal maintenance.
Their 12 Volt 8DK AGM battery is rated at 2,250 CCA, (3,150 Pulse CA).
It offers the best performance and is the highest capacity 8D available in the marketplace and has been specifically designed for demanding marine starting applications.
It consists of three BCI Group 24 battery modules that each weigh 26 kg when disassembled for installation (or partial replacement).
Other features are a Reserve capacity rating of 500 minutes, capacity of 228 Ah @ 20 hour rate, plus over 900 cycles to 50% depth of discharge.
Advanced AGM construction means no water levels to check or terminals to clean, and allows you to install the battery on its side. Pure lead technology also prevents the plates from sulphating; the number one cause of battery failure.
Other BCI group numbers 24, 27, 31, 34 and 65 marine terminal batteries are also available with CCA ratings between 800 and 1,150 CCA’s, (63 to 101 Ah). Marine warranty for these models is a manufacture 3 years Free Replacement.

VyBar® Marine Sound Proofing
Rigid Acoustic Laminate Insulation for Marine Applications
Acoustica® VyBar® is a rigid laminate noise barrier and vibration damping material which has been specifically engineered to absorb and control noise and vibration in main and auxiliary engine enclosures and to line partition walls and bulkheads in marine vessels.
VyBar® has a unique material construction which unlike many other soundproofing materials results in high sound absorption coupled with resilience and compression loading capability.
VyBar® Marine is an extremely robust aluminium faced insulation with an indefinite life.
It does not shed fibres and will not delaminate; it is unaffected by vibration, oil, water and hydrolysis.
Tested and certified to meet the International Maritime Organisation resolution A635 (16) – recommendation on Improved Fire Test Procedures for Surface Flammability as amended by Resolution MSC 61(67).
Service Temperature :
-50 to 120C
VyBar® Marine is available in sheets with standard sizes:
1200 x 1200 x 20mm (VyBar® 848F)
1200 x 1200 x 10mm (VyBar® 48F)

The World’s First Electric Retractable Magnus Effect Stabilizer
RotorSwing is the first fully electrically driven, non-hydraulic roll damping system for vessels up to 30 metres based on the Magnus effect. Instead of traditional fins, the system uses rapidly rotating cylinders which, subject to the direction of rotation, generate an up or downward pressure.
The biggest advantage of RotorSwing in comparison to a fin driven conventional system, is the greater roll damping at lower speeds. To achieve effective roll damping with fins it is necessary to reach a substantial speed through the water. This is partly due to the fact that often, the surface of the fins have been designed to be as small as possible to reduce the risk of damage. In shallow water, protruding fins are, in particular, very vulnerable.
RotorSwing features retractable rotors, eliminating the risk of damage. The retracted rotors remain largely within the turbulent boundary layer1 of the vessel so that any resistance is negligible.
If the rotors are in use in the “Drive” position, they can protrude outside the hull of the ship. However, should the engine be put in to neutral, the rotors automatically retract. This prevents damage during maneuvering and berthing at quays, in locks and ports.
The rotors do not have any effect on the steering and therefore, unlike fin based systems, can be mounted at a position of choice. For the majority of yachts, this is likely to be dictated by the onboard available space for the compact electric motor. It is even possible to mount the rotor at the stern which, in particular for fast-moving yachts, may be preferable.
RotorSwing is the first fully electrically driven, non-hydraulic stabilizing system based on the Magnus effect. No expensive, vulnerable hydraulic pumps, cylinders or high pressure lines and no risk of oil leaks on board. RotorSwing is a product from RotorSwing Marine, founded by Theo Koop. Theo, the founder and owner of the former KoopNautic Holland, is, for good reason, known as “the Godfather of stabilizers”.
