Vetus Instruments


The market offers a large variety of boat instruments, in all sorts and sizes. Here are three reasons why you should choose Vetus instruments:

High degree of accuracy: owing to the very special suspension of the mechanism and the removable pointer, each instrument can be tested and calibrated individually. That is exactly what is done!

Reliability and longevity: the annual number of repair jobs can be counted on the fingers of one hand. Literally!

Smart illumination: no solid dials with over-head illumination from the edges, but translucent dials instead, which are illuminated from below, thus offering optimim readability.

As well as a wide range of instruments, Vetus produce engine instrument panels for universal application and switch panels for on-board electrics - check below for the full range.
