Vetus recently celebrated its 50th anniversary and have always been involved in the canal market, as might be expected from a Dutch company. We are best known for the reliable and long lasting Mitsubishi based engines which power so many Narrowboats around the country. This entire engine range was recently redesigned and now has unique features which make them quieter and cooler running than any other compatible engines. Our larger based engines are also extremely popular in wide beams and of course – Dutch barges! In contrast with other engine manufacturers, Vetus also offers thousands of other products to make your boat complete. We specialise in specifying new build boats and rebuild projects and can offer all the mechanical, plumbing and electrical requirements on board. But we are also happy to supply single components and our knowledgeable dealer network is at hand to help you. Our prices are competitive and we can guarantee that Vetus engines and equipment will all fit and work together; something that doesn’t always happen when you buy from different manufacturers. Best of all, our engines come with a 5-year warranty and all other equipment with a 3-year warranty, to guarantee you peace of mind and carefree boating.
