Forward drive is a new propulsion system that leverages Volvo Penta forward-facing technology to deliver amazing results. The innovative system provides versatility, added passenger comfort, efficiency, flexible trim and a host of performance benefits. It’s the most versatile performance system available. With the DuoProp twin counter-rotating propellers that bite hard, you get unparalleled thrust, straight and true tracking plus faster acceleration on the plane. And since the propellers are facing forward, you increase the safety when surfing or waterskiing behind the boat.
Volvo Penta Forward Drive gives you versatility, enhancing just about every use of your boat, from cruising, to performance, to all types of water sports.
Because the Volvo Penta Forward Drive is under the boat, there’s less noise and exhaust, compared to an inboard installation. This translates into more comfort. And thanks to the Duoprop you get a smoother ride.
Increased onboard comfort with silent shifting
The Aquamatic sterndrive features silent shift, which provides a seamless and soundless shifting.
Speaking of the Duoprop, this Volvo Penta innovation produces better bite, acceleration and speed in a more efficient, smooth way, increasing fuel economy.
