For the first time at SCIBS, an operational VETUS E-LINE system display was up and running on the company’s booth.
It was linked and controlled by a multifunction display (MFD) to showcase the ease of compatibility for onboard integration purposes.
The compact and efficient 48V E-LINE range enables silent, environmentally friendly cruising with exceptional manoeuvring capabilities, with full control enabled by VETUS’s Active Electronic Braking.
Available in three models with output power of 5 to 10 kW, the system packages are ideal as standard shaft-driven inboard diesel engine replacements for re-power projects and new builds.
The E-LINE motor is equipped with a smart, water-cooled 48 V controller that’s developed especially for electric boating, enabling the user to charge the battery bank with a 24 V battery charger.
VETUS supplies a 7-inch multifunction display for NMEA2000 electric propulsion. Using the VETUS CANverter, the V-CAN line can be connected to a NMEA2000 CAN-BUS line.
At SCIBS, the VETUS-Maxwell team also introduced the new NOSKID series of boat flooring. Expanding the VETUS range of high-grip deck material, NOSKID is ideal for boat owners looking for that classic teak look, without the associated costs and maintenance.
It consists of 6-millimetre, closed-cell structure EVA foam plates with 3-metre self-adhesive backing that is trimmable, easy to install and comfortable to stand on.
Available in birch, black and natural teak looks, NOSKID provides exceptional non-slip properties in all conditions and is highly resistant to sunlight and seawater.
“Sanctuary Cove is always a fantastic opportunity for us to talk about the full range of our product line and demonstrate our latest innovative technology to new and current customers,” says Troy Goodwin-Smith, Sales Manager at VETUS-Maxwell Pty Ltd.
“With interest in electric propulsion continuing to grow, we are particularly looking forward to showing visitors our working E-LINE system – an ideal solution for any boat owner looking for an environmentally friendly system that is easy to install and maintain.
“The VETUS bow thrusters are another highlight on the booth and we are keen to explain to boaters why they are the best quality solution, offering significant benefits when compared to conventional thrusters.
“From electric propulsion to thrusters, new NOSKID decking and a range of Maxwell Anchoring products, we can guarantee that all our equipment is created to make life easier on board for our customers.”
