WHEREVER THE WIND TAKES YOU

The very best sailing experience consists of the wind in your hair and the sun in your eyes. A Volvo Penta sailboat engine onboard, ensures that you can savor the memorable moments and keep your mind on what’s most important. Our engines are quiet and efficient and deliver reliable power – with a minimum of vibrations – where and when it’s needed the most. 

Volvo Ocean Race

Proven during the Volvo Ocean race

We are always looking for new ways to make your sailing experience easier and more pleasurable – even in the most extreme situations. Take the Volvo Ocean Race, for example – around 39,000 nautical miles of extreme product testing. One single standard Volvo Penta diesel engine powers everything onboard, in the world’s toughest offshore race. So after operating in such severe conditions, and during such a prolonged period of time, we can confidently deliver great equipment onboard your boat.

Folding propellers

Folding propellers

Volvo Penta’s patented 2-, 3- and 4-blade folding propellers give you low drag while sailing, but all the thrust of a fixed propeller – both forward and reverse. The range covers engine outputs from 5 to 120 hp.

Volvo Penta Repowering

INVEST IN RELIABILITY

Even when sailing there will be times when you’re dependent on your engine’s reliability and continuous performance. However, older engines might suffer from old technology and substandard power output. One easy way to amend this is to repower your vessel, fitting it with a new engine. For D1 and D2 engines, Volvo Penta has developed repowering kits to ensure safe, easy and cost-effective replacement.
