Zen and STABLE bring true putting to superyachts

Golf at sea comes of age: a moving floor, for a moving ocean


SHEFFIELD, UK / ARENDAL, NORWAY – – Zen Green Stage and STABLE are pleased to announce an agreement to align their technologies prior to the Superyacht Technology Show in Barcelona from 20th-21st March 2024.

At SYT Barcelona 2024 STABLE and Zen will be displaying a world-first fusion of technology: stabilized golf putting on board superyachts.

STABLE is a world expert in stabilized platform technology, and has developed onboard stabilization solutions for beds, snooker & pool tables, bowling, seating, dinner tables, wine cabinets and spa/leisure facilities for the nautical, aviation and leisure industries. It has also developed stable platforms for the healthcare, research and workplace sectors.

Today’s announcement means that golfers can finally hit a true putt while on board a vessel.

The innovative British firm’s Zen Green Stage, which offers precision adjustments to recreate real-life sloping greens on a golf course, is used by private individuals including some of the world’s leading Tour players to produce a gold-standard putting experience indoors – described by many as the most addictive form of golf yet seen.

“By combining the adjustable Zen Green Stage with STABLE’s specialized platforms, for the first time in history golfers onboard can putt unaffected by waves” said Zen founder and CEO Nick Middleton. “Your ball will roll straight and true, despite the boat’s motion, or you can adjust the Zen’s gradients to produce billions of different breaking putts. You can even recreate famous putts from history.

“On board a yacht, the Zen – as is suggested by our name – will become a calm place to stand and putt as a respite from the waves. There has never been anything like this before, and I am looking forward to meeting any delegates with a passion for both golf and superyacht technology in Barcelona.”

Superyacht Technology Show is the first ever show dedicated purely to superyacht technology, with speakers, thought leaders, immersive hands-on demos, and workshops.

“We are super-excited to once again present a world first to the Yachting segment. Pairing our unique gyro stabilization technology with the amazing Zen Green Stage will be a game-changer for golf-lovers onboard” said Svend Heier, CEO of STABLE.

On 20th-21st March STABLE and Zen will be meeting SYT Barcelona 2024 delegates at booth #EL38 in the Exploration Lab of the World Trade Center Barcelona venue.

Excluding delivery and installation, the Zen Swing Stage for hitting shots from sloping lies starts at $19,450 USD. The adjustable Zen Green Stage, which adds Tour-quality putting, starts at $30,945. The price of a Zen + STABLE onboard system is available on application.

STABLE (est. 2002) is the number one supplier of onboard stabilization platforms, using technology originally developed for use in active heave-compensated cranes for the offshore Industry. STABLE’s platform neutralizes a vessel’s roll and pitch motions, which are calculated by means of sensor signals, resulting in the platform being automatically adjusted by computer-controlled actuators. STABLE has proved itself by developing one of the most demanding applications in terms of responsiveness and accuracy: the STABLE Billiard, which has been installed on a large number of cruise ships and superyachts.
