Vetus launches new saildrive options
Vetus has introduced complete saildrive packages across its entire small engine range right up to 80hp.
The new saildrive offers the flexibility to mount the engine ahead of the drive, or above the saildrive.
The VH 4-80 is the most powerful naturally aspirated engine available on a saildrive from any manufacturer - and all Vetus diesels available with the new saildrive are naturally aspirated.
The unit can also be mounted on existing (Volvo) GRP beds, or an optional GRP mounting can be supplied to incorporate in the hull mouldings for new builds, or for retro-fit on old shaft drive installations.
Vetus reckon two or three blade folding or feathering propellers will be considered almost mandatory and say a range of specialist propeller options from expert suppliers are compatible with the new saildrive.
