Improved boating experience
Experience more possibilities and unmatched comfort on board when your VETUS diesel engine comes to life with a healthy roar. From the moment you turn the key, a cleaner, smoother, quieter, and more powerful boating experience begins. VETUS’s view on the ideal diesel engine goes beyond output power. Each VETUS diesel engine embraces performance, efficiency, and comfort in every single ring, rod, and gasket.
Improving comfort and pleasure on board are key points of VETUS diesel engines. Our pioneering technologies in air filtering and covering reduce engine sound levels up to 5 dB(A).
Let your boat perform to its fullest potential with a VETUS diesel engine
With a VETUS diesel engine on board, you are in the position to enjoy every moment on the water to the max. Not only because of the power on board, but because you know VETUS has paid a boatload of attention to efficiency, safety, sound reduction, and development.
As a boat owner, you know that a high engine-room temperature has a negative effect on the performance of your diesel engine. At VETUS, we have developed a unique water-cooled, aluminium top cover that significantly reduces temperatures (by up to 15ºC) by absorbing radiant heat. This cooler ambient temperature improves the combustion of the diesel engine by creating a more efficient air supply to the engine. The sturdy top cover with an air-filter housing is also designed to reduce the sound level of your engine up to 5 dB(A), which makes boating more pleasant for your ears.
In-house development and marinization for the best performance and reliability
For over 50 years, robustness and performance have been the signature of VETUS engines. From in-house developed marinization solutions to partnerships with the world’s leading engine manufacturers, VETUS has been leading the innovation race with reliable marine engines suitable for many types of boats.
Our experience as a marine components manufacturer, backed by a team of highly skilled engineers, results in a diesel engine that can reach the highest quality, reliability, and performance. The in-house development and marinization gives us total control over the product, hence the confidence to offer you one of the longest and most comprehensive warranties in the market.
Less maintenance means more time on the water
VETUS engines are designed for easy installation and minimal maintenance requirements. All the maintenance parts, such as fuel filters, relays, impellers, and oil filters, are placed on one side of the engine for easy access. Even the wiring placement is meticulously designed to offer easy connection and extra safety during installation and maintenance. And, with our self-bleeding fuel system, replacing your fuel filters is more convenient than ever.
Even the water-cooled top cover is intended to be used as a step, making manoeuvring around the engine even easier.
