Making Waves. Making Memories.
Superior maneuverability. Powerful performance. Fast acceleration and time to plane. Thrust. Onboard comfort. All the aspects that made the Volvo Penta Forward Drive a propulsion of choice for boaters across the globe still remain. Only now, with double the power and drives, these advantages are available for even bigger boats.
Now boats up to 38 feet can boast the benefits of the Volvo Penta Forward Drive. Bigger boats mean more room to do what you love, alongside everyone you love to do it with.
The Volvo Penta Twin Forward Drive delivers the best of traditional sterndrives, combined with adrenaline-rushing capabilities of a purpose-built wakesport boat into one versatile package.
Wakesurfing. Cruising. Saltwater fishing. Beaching up. Oceans. Lakes. You choose your adventure and we’ll take care of the rest.
