SCHIEDAM, July 2017 ~ VETUS markets marine systems worldwide. Annually, the company attends 40 boat shows. In the weeks ahead, you’ll see its distinct yellow-and-blue logo at boat shows in Amsterdam, Oslo, Cannes and Southampton.
To stay a market leader, VETUS focuses on innovation and refining designs and specifications of existing products to make boating a safe and trouble-free experience. VETUS supplies 4,000 or so technical products, mostly designed or partly designed by the VETUS engineering team.
One major development in 2017 was the introduction of the VETUS common rail D-line engine that has lower revolutions but generates more power and torque while maintaining the reliability and durability. The new D-line engines comply with the EU’s new Recreational Craft Directive emissions norms and are suitable for onboard power hydraulics. Supplied with a CAN bus system with a SAEJ1939 protocol, they also work excellently with NMEA2000 systems on board as well.
The VETUS D-Line engines have an innovative water-cooled cover to reduce engine room heat and noise, a smaller air filter to save space, new exhaust manifold insulation and an electric sump pump. A 160-amp alternator comes standard.
