Hatches & Portlights

Maxwell Marine is no longer manufacturing hatches and portlights. The more common and popular hatches and portlights, formally designed and manufactured by Maxwell, are now available under the Vetus brand and can be found in the current VETUS-Maxwell catalogue or on the Vetus web site at

However, as there is still demand for some hatch and portlight models that Vetus does not include in their extensive range, these “non-catalogue” models may still be ordered from VETUS-Maxwell APAC. Please click on the appropriate icon above for product code ordering information for non-catalogue Vetus Altus (previously Maxwell Slimline) hatches, Vetus Magnus (previously Maxwell Offshore) hatches, or Vetus Opening (previously Maxwell) portlights.

The fourth PDF contains information on how to replace seals on non-catalogue Altus (Slimline) and Magnus (Offshore) hatches and Opening Portlights.

We believe that you should be able to easily ascertain which current model code you need to use to order Vetus non-catalogue hatch and portlight models.

Nevertheless, if you cannot find what you are looking for, please contact us at: and one of our helpful staff will get back to you as soon as possible.
