  • The next generation VF 4 cylinder common-rail engines with variable geometry turbochargers, which range from 145hp to 190 hp. They are compact, lightweight and have an excellent power to weight ratio.
    Furthermore, they are very fuel efficient. The new VF4 has a CAN bus system with SAEJ1939 protocol but can also be used for NMEA2000. They suit new builds like RIB’s, small tenders and light weight motor boats perfectly and are also
    very suitable as a replacement engine. The new VF4 fits to the same footprint as the previous model.

    The new engines can be recognized from the V-shaped intercooler and a newly designed top cover which can be used as a step and gives this range the well-known VETUS appearance.
    The wiring is of high-grade material and therefore less prone to interference. Components are rearranged for better accessibility and maintenance. The VF engines are available in gearbox and sterndrive version.
    As an option the engines can be supplied with a potentiometer in case a mechanical remote control is required.
