An outdoor exhibitor booth at Yokohama Bayside Marina was being setup nearer to all the boats. The booth size (3m x 11m) displayed IPS-LEG and IPS props, IPS600 and D11-670. In addition, a large monitor constantly streamed the video of the “New Glass Cockpit”, “IS” (Interceptor System) and also to promote “2+3 Extended Coverage” to the participants.
At the floating marina area, there were many boats being exhibited: 27 boats and 17 sail boats. It was noted that of the 27 boats exhibited, 25 were diesel engines and 2 were outboard engines. In the 25 diesel engines boats, 12 were Volvo Penta engines (totalling 48% share).
