Creator of Boat Systems – VETUS Maxwell


As “Creator of Boat Systems,” VETUS Maxwell embraces a philosophy of developing innovative and comprehensive solutions in support of the mission: ease of use and turn-key installation of marine systems and components. This is the VETUS and Maxwell Marine DNA—visible in the sixteen “bow to stern” systems shown in our 4,000+ product catalog encompassing stern thrusters to anchor windlasses (and everything in between.) Since 1964, our engineers and end-users have collaborated to design these systems with both the boat-building professional and the everyday boater in mind.



In partnership with Professional BoatBuilder, VETUS Maxwell seeks to deliver relevant updates on product innovations, practical advice from our industry experts and high-light integrated solutions that both streamline your projects and deliver superior performance and longevity to your customers.



Having a global support network means delivering access to hands-on experts right here in the US. Here we have a combined knowledge base of over 60 years in the marine industry, including in-depth experience and firsthand knowledge regarding installation, maintenance, troubleshooting and engineering of marine systems. This in-house expertise includes a knowledge base of particular note:

  • 12, 24 and 48V marine electrical systems and the opportunities they deliver
  • System interconnectivity via our proprietary VCANN and NMEA 2000 compatible components/systems/instrumentation
  • Continuous building on our pioneering development of marine electric propulsion
  • Ongoing innovation in our cutting-edge thruster technology
  • World-class anchoring systems
  • Essential comprehensive understanding of integral marine systems



Our latest industry-altering collaborations with outboard manufacturers delivered our patented and connected BOW PRO thrusters to enhance control and maneuverability via joystick integrations. To date, VETUS thrusters are integrated with Mercury JPO and Yamaha Helm Master® EX. We previously developed control integrations with Glendinning and Cummins and continue to collaborate with other industry powerhouses in furtherance of our goals to make boating—and boat-building–easier. Here we can work together to give boaters what they want and need, easy to use, integrated performance, built to last. Give us a call, ask the questions, outline your ideas, VETUS Maxwell is already a proud partner to professional boat builders the world over and we are here for you.
