Volvo Penta Powers Beagle Channel

See the breathtaking beauty of Patagonia with Volvo Penta IPS

Los Yámanas S.A, who offer sea excursions in the Beagle Channel, use Volvo Penta Inboard Performance System (IPS) to power their tour boats. Operating in one of the most remote parts of the world, the sightseeing boats enable thousands of tourists to experience the beauty of this unique region, including a trip to see the penguin colony at Martillo Island and the breathtaking beauty of Patagonia.

The Los Yámanas fleet mainly operates in the Beagle Channel, one of three navigable routes linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans at the southern tip of South America. Tackling the toughest conditions, operators have control even in demanding sea conditions thanks to Volvo Penta IPS’s unique design. The system has forward-facing, twin counter-rotating propellers that sit below the hull for incredible ‘grip’ of the water – maximizing control.

Volvo Penta IPS delivers up to 30 percent lower fuel consumption and emissions than an inboard shaft. This results in a reduced impact on the environment helping protect the amazing flora and fauna in the region that tourists flock to see. Volvo Penta IPS also reduces noise and vibration levels by up to 50 percent which is important when operating in marine mammal habitats. Low noise and vibration also mean that passengers have a more comfortable experience and can feel even closer to the stunning nature. Watch & Learn More Here > Los Yámanas SA
