Vetus Shaft Bearings


Vetus water lubricated cutlass bearings have a polyurethane-rubber lining and can be supplied with outer bearings made of either bronze or phenolic resin.

Phenolic is lighter in weight and can not corrode: these are ideally suited for installation into aluminium boats and they can be replaced very easily. Vetus rubber bearings are, upon request, also available for larger shaft diameters and for other combinations of dimensions.
