Marine engine, generator and technical equipment company Vetus expanded its range dramatically during 2017 and plans to do the same in 2018 writes Francesca Breeze.
Vetus launched its new six-cylinder D-Line engine range at METSTRADE last year. Now, the company is about to launch a new four-cylinder engine that will include all the features and benefits of its larger cousin.
The latest heavy duty windlass from Maxwell, a Vetus brand company, is the RC12HD that has a larger - 2000W - fan cooled 24V motor than the standard RC12 windlass.
Vetus launched its new range of generators this year, based on its M-line engines.
The GX generator sets operate at fixed speeds with low speed (1500rpm) recommended for commercial applications, prolonged usage and live-aboard vessels, due to reduced wear rates and lower noise levels.
Vetus is to launch the next evolution of its D-Line engine range at METSTRADE 2016 with lower revolutions, more power and torque.
Vetus has a range of new battery splitters that provide simultaneous charging of two or three battery banks from any charging source with negligible voltage drop.
Vetus introduced a new range of M line engines in 2014. Now the company has updated its GX generator range using these engines that are designed to run at lower temperatures and with reduced noise output.
Among the new products from Vetus is a Maxwell anchor chain stopper tensioner for 10mm to 13mm chain, writes Katina Read.
New security products from Vetus are the Boat Detection System and the Boat Monitoring System, both of which, in the case of theft, will send a message with the current GPS location of the boat, as well as the speed and the direction in which it is moving (Track & Trace).
Vetus says a European Committee directive states that all vessels will be required to have a waste water system by 2009, so it has introduced two waste water tank systems, for the temporary storage of waste and " black" water, on board small leisure craft.
Vetus Den Ouden has introduced a powerful stand alone macerator pump and waste processor to give boat owners the option of using a standard domestic toilet on board, rather than having to install a marine toilet.
Vetus has introduced complete saildrive packages across its entire small engine range right up to 80hp.
Vetus Den Ouden has extended its range of electric marine toilets with the addition of two new models, both of which are designed to take up less space on board.
A Vetus-Deutz D4.29 65hp diesel engine helped Inland Waterway Cruises to win the Green Award for Tourism 2002 from the Heart of England Tourist Board.
Vetus Den Ouden has announced that it will no longer supply its boat equipment range through its former national stockist, Unipart Marine, ex-Mark Dowland Marine.
Vetus hydraulic steering systems offers two complete steering systems for single or twin engine installations.
The idea that boaters always want to surround themselves with home-from-home luxuries can be taken with a pinch of salt, but evaluating the need for water-related kit can prove quite tricky, writes Stevie Knight
Vetus is probably best known for its engines, generators and bow thrusters, and for its solidly-made deck gear, hydraulics, and boat instruments, but it is justifiably proud of its ability as an innovator and sees bringing new products to market as a way to both beat the recession and enhance sustainability.
Vetus is a major manufacturer and supplier of marine equipment with a wide-ranging portfolio. The company is probably best known for its engines, generators and bow thrusters and its solidly-made deck gear, hydraulics and boat instruments.
BRAND STRATEGY: Since Vetus joined the Yanmar Group in spring 2013, the two parties have been working closely together to realise a new brand strategy.
