Riding the wave of success

Yachting is the new mega trend in Shanghai. According to Forbes magazine, a current development plan is in place for 11 new yacht piers holding 20,000 boats. It’s a market boom for domestic shipyards, honing their competitive edge by cooperating with international design teams and select suppliers.


The Shanghai Choisi yachts, specializing in customized high-end yachts, chose Volvo Penta IPS as the standard propulsion system for the C73 MY, their flagship product.

During trials, they were very pleased with the performance of the drive system also in rough sea. But that is not all: “As compared with traditional propulsion systems, the IPS saved us more than 55% labor hours during the whole construction and installation,”
