After winning significant new business at METS, propulsion and sterngear specialist CJR is finishing 2010 on a high.

The new contracts are for three superyacht projects including a 38m (125ft) craft being built in the Middle East and two other yachts of 35m and 32m.

All three will include propellers from CJR’s Australian partner VEEM, with sterngear production and CFD engineering handled at CJR’s Southampton facility in the UK.

“With significant growth on 2009, new approvals from several marine bodies and awards for our business practices, METS tops off a bumper year,” says CJR managing director, Mark Russell.

“We managed to agree three new superyacht deals at METS with several more still in the planning stages. At the smaller end things are even busier and our CFD analysis progamme is proving to be a big attraction for designers, yards and owners alike.”

“And with further product developments in the pipeline, the team is hoping 2011 will be even better,” he says.
