of the greatest innovations ever in boating with car-like handling and
maneuvering, joystick for easy docking plus dramatically increased
efficiency compared to inboard shafts.
How can that be? Through radical innovations and forward thinking. The single biggest secret behind Volvo Penta IPS’s superior efficiency lies in the unique pods:
- Forward-facing, twin counter-rotating propellers that work in undisturbed water
- A propeller thrust parallel with the boat’s hull.
- Efficient flat surface hull.
The result is approximately 35% better efficiency at cruising than inboard
shafts. Which leads to the same reduction in exhaust emissions and fuel
