SCHIEDAM – For more than half a century, VETUS has been at pains to design, develop and make marine engines, generators and technical gear that make the boating life easy and enjoyable. By now, its massive portfolio spans thousands of products, the result of consistent “system thinking.”

What is that, you ask? VETUS is committed to creating and marketing boat systems worldwide, not just spare parts.

It’s very simple: the Netherlands-based company not only creates innovative technical equipment for boats but also makes sure to offer products that are part of a complete boat system. That means, for instance, that VETUS not only markets toilets, but also all the connections, tanks, hoses and other components required for a boat’s sanitary system.

In total, VETUS markets 14 complete systems; from the engine room to the fly-bridge. System thinking also means VETUS provides products and peripherals that are easy to install.

VETUS offers a 3-year warranty on all of its equipment and a 5-year warranty on its engines. Its website has a Dealer Locator that shows where the nearest VETUS point is. There are more than 1,600 VETUS locations worldwide. The VETUS website takes visitors to the company’s products catalog.
