Another of the manufacturers we have a long standing relationship with, both for rigging and hydraulics equipment is Ocean Yacht Systems.
The ability to produce custom made fittings, tip-cups and turnbuckles, hydraulic rams and a range of bespoke bow and stern thrusters means OYS is one of the benchmark brands for the manufacture and supply of standing rigging and hardware to the superyacht market.
“OYS has established an enviable reputation for delivering superior quality rigging and thruster solutions, on time and on budget. They have supplied to a significant number of award winning superyachts and continue to stay connected to these and our product in the marketplace.” Mark Barwell, Sales Director of OYS comments, ‘’Relationships are important to us at OYS, and a dedicated in-house team looks after our service agents around the world. This strong relationship is often the connection between OYS and the boat/Captain. The service network enables the yacht to work with their preferred yard at the location of their choice but still have the support of the original manufacture (OYS) for the rigging. Combine the on the ground experience and understanding from the likes of RSB with the product knowledge and expertise of OYS, and the end user knows their rigging is in safe hands.’’
Jon Briggs-Winn, OYS Rigging Project Manager who works closely with the RSB team on projects states…
”We have worked with RSB Rigging on a number of significant projects, and most recently together we completed the re-rig of Bayesian, the tallest aluminium rig in the world. It is a pleasure to work with an efficient team, who respond to queries on past, current and future projects in a timely manner. The cooperation between OYS and RSB Rigging is important, and together both companies work hard and communicate clearly to complete the joint projects on time. RSB Rigging have always been a very approachable, knowledgeable, and helpful team. We look forward to continuing this relationship going forwards.’’
OYS also design & manufacture equipment for Civil Architecture, Defence, Securities, Motor Car and Subsea operations. In 2018 OYS will be celebrating 20 years of the design, manufacture to the superyacht industry… and have worked with RSB’s Steve Branagh since the beginning!
