Why forward facing is superior

Why forward facing is superior

Distinctive, forward facing, twin counter-rotating propellers and individually steerable pods contribute to low fuel consumption and longer cruising range. The compact and perfectly matched D13 driveline pulls the boat through the water rather than pushing it, resulting in less cavitation, better power delivery and increased fuel efficiency.
