Ocean Yacht Systems (OYS) in the UK has secured a contract with New Zealand’s Fitzroy Yachts for the supply of thrusters onboard the next Dubois 50m superyacht (Project G50).

Planned for launch in 2012, the superyacht has been fitted with two 99kW (133hp) custom hydraulic swing thrusters which were designed by OYS to mechanically lock in place when raised.

When retracted, the thrusters leave behind a completely faired hull providing minimum drag and optimal sailing.
