Volvo Penta IPS is the modern inboard system, superior to inboard shafts in every vital aspect – handling, onboard comfort and performance. Those benefits have made Volvo Penta IPS the by far most popular pod system for leisure boats.
Features for easy boating
The joystick is perhaps the most well-known feature of Volvo Penta IPS, making it possible to dock in a new and completely intuitive way. Since its release it has been accompanied by many other smart features, such as Dynamic Positioning System and Sportfish mode. The latest generation of Volvo Penta controls has integrated buttons for Low-speed mode, Single-lever mode and Cruise control, making it even easier to enjoy boating with Volvo Penta IPS.
Up to 100 feet
The range consists of ten models, from IPS350 to IPS1200, matched to three different pod sizes and available for twin, triple and quadruple installations. This makes Volvo Penta IPS suitable for yachts from 30 to 100 feet.
