Company news:


Vetus Den Ouden N.V. of Schiedam, The Netherlands, has increased the output of its popular M3.09 Mitsubishi based marine engine by 8% and at the same time, reduced the fuel consumption by some 5%.

This new engine, coded M3.28, now has an output of no less than 20 kW (27.2 HP).

Owing to the redesigned cylinder head and larger valve diameters, the new VETUS 3-cylinder not only features a power increase, but the torque has improved from 49.1 Nm to 53.1 Nm.

A more powerful 50 A alternator has replaced the former 40 A version and completes the improvements.

Like its predecessor, the new M3.28 engine also features an indirect cooling system with heat exchanger. A keel cooled version is available as an option.

The weight of the engine remains unchanged: a mere 123 kg, including the gearbox.
