Zipwake Series S, the world’s first inexpensive dynamic trim-control system, incorporates a state-of-the-art family of durable, fast-acting interceptors.
The system is fully automatic. It significantly enhances the boat’s performance, fuel economy, comfort and safety when accelerating, turning or running in a seaway.
A Kit Box includes all parts needed to install a Dynamic Trim Control System with one pair of fast-acting interceptors.
- 1 x Control Panel with Standard Cable 7m
- 1 x Distribution Unit with Power Cable 4m
- 1 x Servo Unit
- 1 x Extension Cable 1.5m
- 2 x Interceptors with Cable 3m & Cable covers.
- Dynamically eliminates uncomfortable and dangerous boat pitch and roll.
- Automatically minimizes wave resistance and saves fuel.
- Built-in quality, simplicity and easy expansion, yet still affordable.
Smart Ride Controller:
Zipwake’s unique 3D controls provide the driver with user-friendly, intuitive and precise control of running trim, heel or heading that is unmatched.
Integral, high- frequency GPS, 3D gyro sensors and a robust motion controller all come as standard along with a sunlight readable colour display.

The Distribution Unit supplies the system with power and can accommodate up to six Series S interceptors. The unit is connected to the main control panel.
It is robust, waterproof, oil resistant and ignition protected for mounting in an engine room. The power cable is included for easy connection to a battery.
The distribution unit has built-in electrical protection, including its own protection fuse.
- Six interceptor connections
- I-BUS OUT (power and CAN bus to control panels)
- 2-lead power cable
The Series S submersible electrical Servo Unit fits inside the interceptor, where it drives with precision the mechanism that provides linear motion to the interceptor blades. Fast-acting, durable, calibration free and easy to install or replace. It comes with a rugged 3m cable with self-sealing thru-hull fitting.
A Standard Cable is used to connect the main control panel to the distribution unit, usually located on or near the transom. This cable is also used to connect the main panel to the next panel, e.g. the flybridge.
Thru-hull cable fitting of Series S interceptors can either be concealed behind the interceptor or positioned above the waterline.
Series S incorporates a state-of-the-art durable, fast-acting interceptors. This first-ever modular design that makes the interceptors durable, affordable and perfectly adapted to any planing or semi-planing boat between 6m and 18m (20-60ft). All components have been meticulously engineered to withstand impact and avoid water ingress, minimizing the risk of costly maintenance and downtime.
Interceptor or blade actuation takes place by way of a calibration-free submersible electric servo within the interceptor unit. Its natural water cooling provides excellent working conditions for the brushless DC servo motor, which runs on 12-32 volts. The blade stroke takes 1.5 seconds, as a result outperforming conventional trim tabs by at least a factor of 5.
Installation is made easy with an integral mounting plate and the option of a concealed or above-waterline, self-sealing, thru-hull cable fitting.
Preferred mounting option is achieved by simply routing the servo cable differently. Each interceptor comes with the thru-hull cable fitting, cable covers and a practical drill template.
