Customer Success at World Superyacht Awards


Spirit-yachts-geistCongratulations to Spirit Yachts on winning Sailing Yacht of the Year 2021 in the Boat International World Superyacht Awards 2021.

At 33.9m long, Geist was built by Spirit Yachts with Naval Architecture and exterior design by Sean McMillan of Spirit Yachts and interior design by Tom Smith of Spirit Yachts and Rhoades Young Design. She is a classical yacht built using sustainable materials, whilst minimising the impact on the environment.

Geist and the team at Spirit Yachts have utilised advanced technology keeping it out of sight for aesthetic reasons, and her ‘environmental heart’ should not be overlooked. The judges at the awards felt she is a mix of top quality, traditional beauty, innovative interior design and advanced technology.

Geist is equipped with an OMS Sail Control Cylinder package, custom made for this project, which included double acting stainless vang, backstays and traveller & halyard rams.

“It has been a pleasure supplying Geist and Spirit Yachts with custom hydraulic cylinders,” comments Mark Barwell Sales Director for OMS. “Their craftsmanship and attention to detail are second to none, and this project is simply stunning. With several other (soon to be launched) projects from Spirit Yachts featuring OMS equipment, we look forward to a future of working together.”

Busy times. Twin bow thrusters being assembled for a 90m (295ft) new build motoryacht. 142kW of power each, driven via PM electric motors. Plus a matching OMS swing retracting stern thruster aft. #OMS #OMSthrusters #bowthrusters ...

Nice to catch up with our colleagues @nautorswan_official today. Just checking on their little performance ClubSwan 125 with its super lightweight titanium OMS retractable thruster, whilst she is here in the uk. Lovely build, lovely crew. Onwards to the next event for them. The fastest yachts in the world use OMS gear. We build the lightest without compromise. #OMS #nautourswan #clubswan125 #swanyachts #OMSthrusters ...

By using modern soft composite technology, OMS are making lighter hydraulic rams. The use of titanium and high load strops allows us to hydraulically seal whilst allowing us to reduce deflection on an unloaded but extended piston rod. 6000mm stroke and 45000kg BL rams under construction now at OMS.

are the experts in sonar deployment machines. Thru-hull designs use swing or vertical deployment to provide easier, faster and repeatable under ship positioning. Our machines provide the most efficient solutions for survey and defence operations.

Designed and made by experts, OMS.
