The engine is often the heart of your operation, and you are dependent on its reliability. Repowering, fitting your vessel with a new engine, is an easy way to experience reliable, continuous performance. Not only do you get the benefits of the tried and tested Volvo Penta range of engines, but it offers opportunities to customize your vessel with additional options and features to improve convenience, efficiency and onboard comfort.Marine Leisure Marine Commercial
Power and Performance
Installing a new engine will tangibly improve your boat’s performance. Volvo Penta’s global dealer network will always be able to assist you in both finding and installing a suitable engine for your vessel. With the right engine you’ll enjoy better acceleration, immediate response and high cruising speed. Maneuverability will improve along with onboard comfort thanks to quieter operation and lower vibration levels.
Upgrading brings a host of benefits. New Volvo Penta engines feature design considerations and integrated functions to protect both the operator and the engine. And since the engine is new, you’ll enjoy the Volvo Penta 2+3 year warranty. Most importantly, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing your boat is reliable and will power you safely out to sea, every time.
For many boat owners, repowering means switching from a mechanically governed engine to one with electronic management. The result is a smoother ride and an entirely new feel to the boat’s controls. Repowering also opens the door to other improvements. For example, the sophisticated Electronic Vessel Control system (EVC) offers unique control over both engine and propulsion, and can be upgraded with additional options of your choice. And even if you should choose to keep the mechanical governing, a repowering means that you'll be able to benefit from new, intuitive controls that improve your boating experience.
Environmental care is one of Volvo’s core values. With our innovative transmission technology and low-emission engines, your consumption and emission levels will drop – all compared to older engines with older technology – and you’ll enjoy a quieter, more comfortable boating experience.
Volvo Penta has developed repowering kits to ensure safe, easy and cost-effective replacement. Every kit is made to match, has been thoroughly tested, and will cause minimal impact to your existing engine bed. All parts and components are included along with complete installation instructions.
