Building on its availability in the Volvo Penta IPS, the silent shift feature was introduced on the new Volvo Penta DPI Aquamatic sterndrive in June 2019. Now, the company is unveiling an expansion to both the Volvo Penta D3 and its full line of gasoline sterndrives including the Volvo Penta Forward Drive, SX single prop drive and DPS duoprop drive. With these additions, which will be unveiled publically in early 2020, Volvo Penta has scaled the benefits of this feature across a broader scope of boat sizes and horsepower ranges to serve more customers than ever before.
“The silent shift feature encompasses well Volvo Penta’s vision of Easy Boating which aims to enhance and improve the overall boating experience,” said Ron Huibers, president of Volvo Penta of the Americas. “Now, no matter which type of sterndrive application, customers can rest assured that the expectations for optimal comfort and smooth control at the helm will be met.” Silent shift for gasoline sterndrives will make its on-water debut at the Miami International Boat Show, taking place February 13-16, 2020 in Miami, Florida.
