Volvo Penta’s Inboard Performance System (IPS) with forward-facing, twin counter-rotating propellers is developed as a modern, alternative to traditional inboard shafts. Combined with its individually steerable pods under the hull, it is superior to inboard shafts in every vital aspect – handling, onboard comfort and performance. Volvo Penta IPS comes as complete packages, from one supplier, for twin, triple or quadruple diesel installations – making forward-facing efficiency available for yachts from 30 to 100 feet.
Less fuel used
Above all the benefits with the IPS like handling, lower noise level, higher top speed and much more, the IPS lowers the fuel consumption with as much as 30%. In addition to the compact installation of engines and driveline, the fuel capacity is lowered and cruising range improved.

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.

Compact, clean and quiet
A Volvo Penta IPS installation is very compact and leaves valuable on-board space for other purposes. It is cleaner thanks to significantly lower CO2 emission levels – compared with traditional installations – and the perceived noise levels are reduced by half. It’s compact, clean and quiet.
A revolution in the industry
In 2005, Volvo Penta IPS revolutionized the boating industry. Today, IPS units have been installed in more than 250 different boat models worldwide. Here you will find out more about this extremely versatile drive system.
