Babbitt type oil lubricated propeller shaft bearings are used when a closed oil system lubricates the stern tube bearings and the propeller shaft seal.  No sea water is needed to enter the hull of the ship.  In an oil lubricated system there will be both an inboard and outboard propeller seal, one on each end of the stern tube, keeping the oil contained. 

The advantages of this system are only that sea water is not needed for cooling of the seal and bearings.  This is ideal in some cases for vessel that operate in silty water on a constant basis.  The disadvantages are high cost both initial and during retrofit and if biodegradable oils are not used, the chance of leaking of oil.
