Around the engine

Stern Gear Stern Gear

Everything that a boat owner needs to install their engine is supplied by Vetus. The user experience is paramount. The engineers at Vetus keep in mind that the engine is often istalled in a very small space, therefore service items are easily accessible from any position.

Vetus have developed a whole range of 'around the engine' products, such as water filters: Vetus developed the transparent cover which makes checking the filter for clogging very simple.

The 'around the engine' range includes engine mounts; engine room ventilation fans and air vents; propellers, propeller shafts and stern gear; flexible couplings; engine controls and control cables; cooling water strainers and intake hose.

Exhaust Systems

Vetus have a rich history in developing exhaust systems. When developing a new excaust component, obviously the main goal is the reduce the sound level as much as possible. The challenge is that the back pressure should not become too high, otherwise engine performance may be affected.

Vetus have developed a wide range of exhausts system components to suit different applications, all of which minimise back pressure. The range includes waterlocks, mufflers, goosenecks and exhaust hoses.

Fuel Systems

Fuel Systems

The saying that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link is certainly applicable to the propulsion system on a boat. The fuel system is critical to the propulsion of a vessel and Vetus are specialists in this!

Vetus supplied fuel tanks in different sizes, with or without fittings; fuel filters; hoses and deck fillers; gauges and senders. Because these connect perfectly with other Vetus systems, you can be assured of optimum performance.

The drinking water ststem includes water tanks, which can be supplied fitted with an electric water pump and an ultrasonic level indicator which accurately senses the water level without making any physical contact with it. Additional components include drinking water hoses; calorifiers and pressurised accumulator tanks

Waste Water Systems

Water Systems and Filters

Vetus produce the complete system for waste water onboard, including a range of marine toilets; holding tanks; no-smell fllters; hoses and connectors; and fittings for pump-out.

The TMW toilet has been designed to integrate a powerful macerator that is virtually clog-free; yet it still manages to keep the noise at only 60bD, similar to the volume of a normal conversation.

Bow Thrusters

Bow Thrusters

In 1982, Vetus introduced the first bow thruster for pleasure boats. Since then, the bow thruster has become an established concept in the boating world, offering much increased ease of monoevering for the boatowner at a very reasonable price.

By installing a thruster, the boat may be turned 'on the spot', making difficulty docking or mooring a thing of the past - this is particularly of use for boats kept in a marina or regularly going in and out of port.

Vetus is now proud to introduce the RimDrive, a revolutionary concept in every sense!

In addition to bow thrusters, Vetus also produce stern thrusters and the full range of installation accessories including tunnels in GRP and steel; control panels and cables; plus spares including propellers and anodes.

A cowl ventilator can be a real eye-catcher on the deck. Vetus have used industrial designers to ensure that the ventilator not only works well, but will also add to the look of your boat.

Apart from the design, the choice of materials is very important: Vetus ventilators are available in a synthetic material that is highly UV resistant; and also in a stainless steel version. All models can be supplied with a dorade box to complete the installation.
