Thrustmaster announced an agreement with DOEN which it says makes it the only U.S.-based manufacturer of commercial waterjets for marine propulsion. DOEN is an Australian-based designer and manufacturer of waterjet propulsion systems, one of five marine waterjet manufactures in the world building waterjets up to 5,364 hp (4,000 kW).
