FLAT | coocktops

electronic gimbal system for hobs


FLAT is the world’s first and only electronic gimbal system for hobs. The automation keeps the cookers perfectly leveled in any rolling/heeling condition, making the cook’s job easier and safer.
The compact design and flush-top installation facilitate the integration of the gimbal cooktop into the galley’s worktop, for an unprecedented aesthetic result. Born from the needs of bluewater sailing yachts Flat is perfect onboard any kind of vessel, motor or sail, small or huge. Flat rewrites the rules. All.
