Silver Z & Petestep®-technology 

The fiberglass  Silver Z-range utilizes the unique Swedish Petestep®-technology, by  Petestep Ab.

Petestep’s innovation allows for a reduced wetted surface, reduced wasted energy in spray flow to the sides, reduced pounding and noise as well as an increased side stability. This means a unique combination of fuel efficiency, comfort and stability. Petestep’s deflectors work by redirecting sideways flowing spray down and aft, above the calm water surface.

Petestep® - A Better Ride

Conventional spray rails with their flat surfaces are associated with hard landings. Petestep® deflectors, on the other hand, dampens landings and lowers slamming by up to 50%, resulting in unmatched ride comfort.
No more clatter in waves! Because Petestep® hulls don’t have any horizontal flat surfaces that smash the water under the hull, the biggest source of hull noise is removed. This makes Petestep® hulls create a lot less noise from waves, which significantly adds to the comfort of the ride.
Petestep® hulls increase stability, both at speed and at the dock. At zero speed, Petestep® hulls have a wider footprint that makes the boat less prone to heeling. When at speed, the deflectors stabilise the boat, once again contributing to a better ride..
Petestep® hulls reduce resistance by removing friction and reducing energy waste. Up to 35% less energy is required to propel the boat forward, which could lead to significantly lower fuel consumption at comparable level of comfort.
