Inside SOTW Mag: Product Spotlight—Livorsi Marine Stepped Trim Tabs

Two years after showcasing its new trim tabs at the Miami International Boat Show, Livorsi Marine is taking the trim tab to the next level with another “but of course” product. The Grayslake, Ill., company, which has created countless innovative products over the past three decades, announced two days before this year’s boat show in Miami that it would be unveiling its new patent-pending Livorsi Marine 1150 trim tabs featuring a multi-stepped design.


Livorsi Marine unveiled its patent-pending multi- stepped trim tabs, which come in four styles, at the Miami International Boat Show.

As Livorsi Marine explained in its product release, stepped- bottom hulls, which have been around for decades, have proven that stepped-hull designs increase speed, reduce drag and improve overall efficiency. Applying the same dynamics, Livorsi’s new multi-stepped tabs introduce air via a number of different grooves, channels and steps, reducing the stickiness of a non-stepped tab design and making the tab more efficient.

Sounds logical, right? And, according to John Wendt, vice president and general manager of Livorsi Marine, the new tabs have been received positively since their introduction.
