Vetus Hatches


ABC Powermarine supply a wide selection of Vetus ventilation and escape hatches, many of which are available from stock.

Check out the difference between hand-polished and anodised only aluminium. Hand-polished looks much more sophisticated and, on account of the surface pores being polished out, the aluminium remains shiny and clean. These hatches feature a new design of handle which can be opened from the outside as well as the inside, making them comply with CE regulations: they can however be locked from the inside.

In addition, thirty nine different portholes are available from Vetus in a variety of shapes and sizes - see below for full details.
