    Yes it has stablisers with the software that learns the wave pattern and anticipates etc.

    Yes, I went out in a 575 with stabilisers - its lke 'switching off the sea' - means that say in an f5 you can have passengers read a book, watch TV and even make a cuppa tea. Its a very comfortable ride - a major factor in my conversion over to SD hull. Some have said its like putting the boat on rail tracks ... it makes an enourmous difference.

    I watched the Nordhaven video of their Atlantic crossing - one had a problem with their stabilisers and as a result actually turned back and sailed with the seas until fixed - they could not take the rolling.

    Looks fabulous, think it's the first Trader I've seen with a blue hull? Look forward to seeing her in Emsworth - a 10 min walk from my office.

    Congratulations!

    I think they made one fishing boat with a lighter blue hull but i think its the firtst proper Trader with one - i know at least one of the new trader 64's also has a blue hull.
