Volvo Penta | The Simple Act Of Being

Tuesday, Feb 1, 2022

the simple act of being...

Where the road ends in Langfjordnes, Northern Norway, 300 miles above the Arctic Circle, Volvo Penta is helping Bente Aust live her Boating Dream. Surrounded by the Arctic Ocean and the quiet stillness of the mountains, it is vital to have a boat, engine and a service support network that can be trusted. Totally dependent on her Targa 30 to be able to get food and supplies, visit friends and access the road to the city, Bente relies on Volvo Penta and her Volvo Penta D6-400/DPH.

Bente recalls her childhood years in Langfjordnes, learning to drive her own boat at the age of five. She recalls how as a teenager she could not wait to get away and how for thirty years she tried another life in the city, working long days travelling the world. Bente recalls how she subsequently started to question the life she lived and her disconnect from that which she held dear. Thoughts began to grow that a return to Langfjordnes would allow her the time and space for relaxation, spontaneity, connection and the simple act of being. Powered by Volvo Penta, Bente is living her Boating Dream.
