An Interview with Oyster about the Award Winning 565

Automatic Fender System
In this article I am reviewing a product that has been developed and thoroughly tested over several years. The early versions were brilliant, and a new version has made them even neater with even better performance. This latest incarnation of the Automatic Fender System had its European launch at the prestigious Cannes Yachting Festival in September 2019 and was shown in full operation on the demonstration rig.   This promises to revolutionise the way we all take the handling of fenders for granted.
