Volvo Penta IPS slows down28/07/2011
Trawler yachts and other semi-planing craft can now enjoy the benefits of Volvo Penta IPS, including the features for easy boating such as Joystick Docking and Dynamic Positioning System. The diesel models from IPS350 to IPS800 are available with propeller series specially designed for semi-planing hulls.
The exceptional onboard comfort that Volvo Penta IPS offers is a benefit for these boats, which are often used for longer voyages. Noise and vibrations are very low and the through-the-pod exhaust system means that all exhaust fumes are carried well behind the boat. This is particularly beneficial since the often high superstructures on trawler yachts, in combination with moderate cruising speed, can lead to a station-wagon effect.
The compact aft installation opens up completely new design opportunities with more space for accommodations compared to inboard shafts. Another important benefit for the boat builder is that installation is easy, since it is a complete system, from helm to props.
