Volvo Penta Forward Drive

Saturday, Jun 12, 2021

less noise and exhaust fumes...

The revolutionary Volvo Penta Forward Drive opens new vistas for builders and consumers. Uniquely engineered with forward-facing counter-rotating props that pull the boat through the water rather than pushing it, Forward Drive gives small-craft leisure boaters new found levels of versatility, flexibility and comfort. Forward Drive provides boaters with new, unmatched levels of versatility, enhancing just about every use of the boat, from cruising, to performance, to all types of water sports. With the Forward Drive you experience less noise and exhaust fumes, since the exhaust is emitted under the water, which translates into more onboard comfort. Duoprop will give you enhanced fuel economy, better manoeuvrability, greater low-speed handling and fast acceleration.

The Forward Drive propulsion system leverages Volvo Penta forward-facing technology to deliver amazing results. The innovative system provides versatility, added passenger comfort, efficiency, flexible trim and a host of performance benefits. It’s the most versatile performance system available. With the DuoProp twin counter-rotating propellers that bite hard, you get unparalleled thrust, straight and true tracking plus faster acceleration on the plane. And since the propellers are facing forward, you increase the safety when surfing or waterskiing behind the boat.
