Zipwake's Dynamic Trim Control System, the world's first economical trim control system, incorporates a state of the art series of durable and fast-acting interceptors. This combination eliminates the well-known trim problems of planing and semi-planing boats between 20-100 feet. The system is fully automatic and significantly enhances performance, fuel economy, comfort and safety when accelerating, turning or running in a seaway.
TRIM TABS VS INTERCEPTORS: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
If you’re a boat owner, you probably have heard of trim tabs and interceptors. But what exactly is the difference between these two? Trim tabs and interceptors both affect how a boat behaves in the water. The difference between them lies in how they work.
Trim tabs are small horizontal metal plates located below the water line, when activated, they move up and down independently of the vessel, adjusting the elevation or pitch of the boat.
Interceptors, on the other hand, are vertical plates placed on the bottom edge of sterns or transoms to generate additional lift and provide flexibility in terms of making adjustments when desired. Both types of equipment help improve fuel economy as well as make boats more responsive to steering commands, interceptors also deploy faster and create more lift with less surface area, which makes them the better option.
