For leisure boaters, Forward Drive opens a door to a world of watersport wonders.
It also offers weekend watersports enthusiasts the kind of performance you’d expect from a pleasure craft, with less cavitation, zero side force, less emissions and better overall fuel economy. In other words, greater efficiency.
More Performance in Your Wake
Forward Drive propulsion offers more than enough power to meet your performance needs, with up to 430 horsepower, creating top speeds greater than comparable inboard single shaft prop systems.
Equipped with DuoProp counter-rotating propellers, Forward Drive offers a unique and industry first symmetrical wakeboarding wake and equally shaped wakesurfing wave on your side of choice.
When the watersports are done, take the helm and feel the powerful control of a forward propulsion system. Horizontal, as opposed to angled thrust, allows you to handle tight turns with ease, maneuver safely and more intuitively, dock with ease, and above all, revel in your passion.
One small leisure boat that can do it all? Volvo Penta Forward Drive makes it possible.
