Volvo Penta IPS1200
Volvo Penta IPS1200 is a perfectly matched package, powered by the in-line 6-cylinder D13, a 12.8-liter, common-rail diesel with a twin-entry turbo, and supercharger for incredible, low rpm response. Working together with a perfectly matched IPS3 pod, twin counter-rotating propellers and the Electronic Vessel Control system, this package offers excellent maneuverability, long action range and low emissions.
Steerable pods provide superior slow-speed maneuverability and excellent high-speed handling. Docking is easy and safe, even in confined spaces. The outstanding maneuverability also leads to efficient driver response and high safety.
This perfectly matched, integrated engine and pod system with a turbo provides outstanding performance and excellent maneuverability throughout the operating range. By working in undisturbed water, the forward-facing propellers enhance the already high performance.
The engine and pod system is designed for low noise and pleasant onboard environment. A combined rubber suspension and seal absorb propulsion forces and vibrations. And all exhaust fumes are emitted through the pods and into the prop wash for improved comfort.
