Times are changing for motor yachts

Motor superyacht with OMS Thruster

The large yacht sector is full of one-off prototype projects. The owners are innovators and early adopters, keen to be different, push the envelope and work with technical suppliers to be unique.

This multi-award-winning 85m yacht, with striking exploration style looks, was launched back in 2019.ย  She features OMS retracting thrusters to great advantage ensuring higher speeds, performance and a lower hull resistance when compared to open tunnel thrusters.

This project took advantage of OMS retracting thrusters, more often seen as the benchmark in all large sailing yachts.ย  The benefits of maintaining a completely smooth surface rather than having an open void on any driven hull are significant. Not just higher speeds but an extended range with increased efficiency.

Are you still using open thruster tunnels on your motor yacht build? If so, why? Reduce drag. Increase speeds. Improve range. Build a more efficient boat. Install OMS swing or vertical deploying units.

Times are changing. Keep up.
