Benefits that will make the difference, making sure you spend more time on the water. With Volvo Penta, you have one single contact for everything: engines, drives, propellers, instruments, accessories, service and warranties. For reliability, uptime and total economic, social and environmental sustainability - the choice is Volvo Penta ! 

Inboard Motors: A typical inboard engine can be positioned in various locations on a boat. The power from the engine to the propeller is transferred through a shaft. Inboard motors typically have more horsepower and better fuel efficiency than an outboard motor. With a low center of gravity inboard motors are a popular choice for commercial fishing and charter boat operators that work in heavy seas. Inboard motors can also help create a smaller wake behind the boat making them ideal for surface water sports such as water-skiing, water tubing or wakeboarding.

Volvo Penta IPS: Volvo Penta IPS delivers an unmatched boating experience for yacht applications. Each IPS installation is a complete and perfectly matched propulsion package that delivers not only optimum power and maneuverability but also greater onboard comfort in all conditions. When it comes to fuel economy, the benefits of Volvo Penta IPS are obvious – an impressive 30% possible reduction in fuel consumption when cruising compared to inboard shafts. That translates into longer range by over 40% and of course a huge drop in exhaust emissions. 

Aquamatic Sterndrive: The Aquamatic Sterndrive is all about boating pleasure. With its optimal combination of performance, driving pleasure and comfort in 20–45 foot boats, it delivers a hard-to-match experience – no matter if you’re looking for excitement or leisure cruising. Thanks to the engine’s placement, you can enjoy the benefits of a clean transom – allowing for benefits such as a swimming platform or unhindered watersports behind the boat.

Inboard Shaft: The broad range of reliable Volvo Penta diesel inboard engines excel in performance and drivability, making them a truly excellent choice for yachts. The inboard installations can be extended with unique features and functions that will make your life at sea – and at the dock – even more enjoyable. By integrating your yacht's engines and electronics through the Electronic Vessel Control system, you’ll be able to experience intuitive Joystick Driving, easy Joystick Docking or the intelligent Autopilot, everything easily monitored through the Volvo Penta Glass Cockpit System. With a wide range of options, accessories and services, Volvo Penta completes a comprehensive offer to your life at sea.
