Quick, a historic Italian brand in the field of nautical accessories, knows no rest. After the MC² Quick Gyro stabilizers (we told you about them HERE), here are the latest innovations previewed at METS in Amsterdam, the most important international trade fair for accessories.


The first is called Q-SY Quick Synchronous Motors . They are a new range of electric motors (powering maneuvering propellers, anchor windlasses, winches…) that make integration, efficiency, and total lack of maintenance their cornerstones.

What is the secret? The machine, the result of careful research, design and development and thorough testing conducted under the most extreme conditions, consists of an integrated power inverter and a permanent magnet synchronous reluctance motor. All this results in improvements in operating costs, ease of use, reliability, efficiency, light weight, flexibility and quiet operation. “Our philosophy,” says Quick president and CEO Michele Marzucco, “is to guarantee the shipowner a ‘complete package’ of products, all signed Quick and all connected to each other. This will be possible from September thanks to the novelty presented in Cannes: the QNN – Quick Nautical Network, a gateway just born in the company capable of integrating Quick systems with navigation systems.”


The second major new product presented at the Amsterdam Boat Show is the QNC Quick Nautical Controls series. A new range that includes revisions of classic single and dual joystick models and push-button operable control designed to control bow or stern maneuvering propellers. Quick thought to make the new remote control controls by redesigning them entirely in panel aesthetics and technology.

For the design part, the company decided to use black-colored tempered glass with ghost-effect backlighting, which can effectively absorb and dissipate shocks and give the product a contemporary and elegant aesthetic. For the technology part, Quick has replaced the digital communication protocol with the CAN-Bus backbone-based protocol. This allows for more stable communication between the engine and control panel, thus offering many advantages.

The restyling project aims to extend to more product lines in Quick’s portfolio. First among them is the remote control for the MC² Quick Gyro stabilizers, revised to a “contemporary” version.

The 3.5-inch high-resolution widescreen display with full touchscreen technology has been redesigned to fit the new backlit tempered glass screen. The digital communication protocol used here is also based on CAN-Bus backbone, making a great innovation possible. Control more than one MC² Quick Gyro stabilizer at the same time.
