Vetus M.3.09 Question

Looking at buying some classic plastic that was re-powered by a PO with a Vetus diesel; the seller has forwarded me pix of the mfr's plate from the engine, but it is written in German (I think).

Questions based on what I have been able to find out so far:

Is M.3.09 a 3 cylinder engine from 2006 or thereabouts? (It's not referenced in the 2014 catalog.)

Were these used or recommended to replace the Atomic 4s?

The Vetus plate doesn't indicate HP, but it does say "HK 25" and "KW 18.4" - does this indicate max engine power of roughly 25 HP?

Are the Vetus diesels marinized Mitsubishi engines (as I have read)? Or are they made by Deutz (sp)? from, I think, Holland (as I have also read)?

Are they generally reliable, and can you easily get parts and service in Florida and elsewhere in the US?

How does Vetus info engine plate translate into English?

Many TIA!
