Next Generation Rod Rigging from OYS

OYS N-Series Rigging Turnbuckle DAME NominationOYS has for 20+ years been the leader in yacht rod rigging, now METS will see a launch of their new series of rigging design – the N-Series. The new range will focus on sustainability, extending the lifecycle of the product and the reduction of waste through the yacht’s life cycle.

The N-Series is the Next Generation of Rod Rigging and is a complete re-design of the range of OYS products that have been a benchmark and the go-to for riggers and mast makers worldwide.

The N-Series will launch with all new rigging fittings providing the interface between the mast and deck. What is different and what does it mean for the end-user and those servicing the rigging? The concept is for a more modular approach, making the component parts more accessible with less replacements required during the rigging’s lifecycle, reducing both ownership cost and waste.

We have a dynamic team of talented designers and it’s been a great opportunity to review the market-leading range year old range, updating materials, the manufacturing processes and reducing cost impact for yacht owners and the environment.”
