VETUS launched its new D-Line engine range in 2016. Now, the four-cylinder 120hp and six-cylinder 170hp models have both been given approval by Deutz for commercial use.

“Up until now, we have only been able to sell these engines for leisure applications,” explained Stephen Baker of VETUS UK. “We can now offer these versions for this application with a 12 month / 1,000-hour warranty.”

The engines have lower revolutions, with more power and torque whilst maintaining the reliability and durability.

They meet the RCD2013/53/EU emissions regulations and are suitable for power hydraulics on board a vessel.

The engines – that have a power output from 122 to 210hp - are supplied with a CAN bus system with a SAEJ1939 protocol and also work with NMEA2000 systems.

Reduced noise

A water-cooled top cover reduces heat in the engine room and also reduces engine noise.

The top cover can also be used as a step.

Other engine features include a new and smaller air filter in order to save space in the engine room; new exhaust manifold insulation and water heater connections; an electric sump pump and a high output alternator (160 Amps) as standard.

As options Vetus offers a second alternator; a PTO flange to install a hydraulic pump; a fly-bridge instrument panel and a trolling valve.

An option also available for the six-cylinder models is a separate fuel filter kit.
