FEATURES & Benefits

FROM A REVOLUTION TO A PROVEN SUCCESS

Thanks to excellent fuel efficiency, first-class maneuverability and reduced onboard comfort, Volvo Penta IPS meets the demands for any powerboat applications. Each IPS installation is a complete and perfectly matched propulsion package – delivering optimum power in all conditions.

30% less fuel, 40% longer range

When it comes to fuel economy, the benefits of Volvo Penta IPS are obvious – an impressive 30% possible reduction in fuel consumption at cruising speed compared to inboard shafts. That translates into longer range by over 40% and of course a huge drop in exhaust emissions.

Increased performance

It may seem like an impossible combination, but while decreasing fuel consumption, performance is also greatly improved. In a matchup against inboard shafts of the same power, the differences are obvious. The boat equipped with Volvo Penta IPS accelerates much faster and has a higher top speed.

ONBOARD SPACE AND COMFORT

Maneuverability, onboard comfort and reliable performance – Volvo Penta IPS takes these characteristics to a whole new level. In addition, the layout of the IPS installation leads to a more compact, smaller engine room, creating considerably more usable space onboard.

Safe and Predictable Maneuvering

Safe and Predictable Maneuvering

The steerable pods react immediately and precisely to driver commands, the turning radius is tight and tracking is absolutely straight. With the Volvo Penta driver interface, most features are integrated in the controls, providing a new level of ease at the helm.

Minimal vibrations

Minimal vibrations

Thanks to exhaust fume release through the pod, the low vibration of the twin counter rotating propellers and effective suspension, vibrations and noise levels are significantly reduced, thus increasing onboard comfort.

Why forward facing is superior

Forward facing efficiency

Forward facing efficiency

The twin, counter-rotating propellers face forward and work in undisturbed water. The propeller thrust is parallel with the hull. All power drives the boat forward.

Virtually no fumes

Virtually no fumes

All exhaust fumes are emitted through the pods, into the prop wash and carried well behind the boat for improved onboard comfort.

Cavitation-free

Cavitation-free

The propellers are positioned well under the hull to eliminate air intrusion and cavitation, even in sharp turns and during full acceleration.

Increased control and safety
