Active and precise driving


Safe and predictable driving – With Volvo Penta IPS driving is a lot more intuitive than with inboard shafts – and much easier. The secret is in the steerable pods, pointing the entire thrust in


the desired direction. They react immediately and precisely to driver commands, the turning radius is tight and tracking is absolutely straight. All this for safe and predictable driving.
