Latest Innovations from Volvo Penta

Volvo Penta’s latest innovations in support of Easy Boating will be on display in Miami! Experience what it’s like to control a boat’s entire electrical system through a single key fob, take a close look at Volvo Penta’s impressive line-up of next-generation gasoline engines, learn how to control an inboard boat with our joystick and experience how Volvo Penta’s Glass Cockpit has changed the way boaters can monitor, control and maneuver their entire vessel with ease.

Inboard Joystick

New Joystick for Inboard

Volvo Penta’s Joystick for Inboard is the first and only joystick for twin inboard shaft installations that provides both docking and driving modes and integrates all five steering components: thruster, rudders, gear shift, slip and throttle. The joystick’s patented technology automatically calculates a balance between rudder angles and thrust from the main engines and bow thruster to match each specific boat’s characteristics. Because the system features integrated rudders, no other manufacturer offers the same level of maneuverability. The Volvo Penta patented functionality ensures smoothness and precision in every situation.

Easy Drain

New Easy Drain System

The award-winning Volvo Penta Easy Drain removes raw water from the engine in mere minutes, regardless of whether the boat is in or out of the water. This allows boaters in cold-water climates to extend the boating season, as they can quickly drain water from the engine when there is a risk of freezing, as well as for long-term storage.


New D8 Engine

The new range of D8 leisure diesel engines is available in inboard shaft applications 550 to 600 horsepower. Like all Volvo Penta diesels, the D8s deliver industry-leading torque across the full range of RPMs, giving extraordinary out-of-the-hole acceleration and efficient cruising speeds in all conditions.


New D8-IPS700 and D8-IPS800

Volvo Penta’s Inboard Performance System (IPS) with forward-facing, twin counter-rotating propellers is developed as a modern alternative to traditional inboard shafts. Combined with its individually steerable pods under the hull, it is superior to inboard shafts in every vital aspect – handling, onboard comfort and performance.The addition of Volvo Penta’s new D8-IPS700 and D8-IPS800 into this revolutionary lineup further expands the range and extends the benefits of IPS to an even greater variety of boats.

Battery Management System

The Battery Management System is a fully integrated solution for monitoring, managing and maintaining all the boat’s batteries from a central display at the helm station, replacing multiple separate voltage meters for each battery. The e-Key Remote feature adds a new dimension of convenience and control when operating the boat’s engines and electrical system. It lets boaters lock and unlock the boat’s electronic system and switch on/off the boat’s engine EVC ignition with the touch of a button up to 300 feet away from the boat.


Electronic Vessel Control

Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) is Volvo Penta’s common electronic platform. Based on the same CAN-bus technology used in ships, planes and cars, EVC gives total integration.  All information is distributed on one CAN-bus backbone. This radically reduces the amount of wiring and connectors required, leading to much higher reliability and easier installation.

Widescreen Glass Cockpit Displays

Integrated with the Volvo Penta Electronic Vessel Control system (EVC), Glass Cockpit enables you to monitor and control information in one place via a single interface. It provides a full overview of navigation and engine data, together with Easy Boating functions such as Autopilot and Joystick driving. Available from 7 to 24 inch, the display layouts are fully customizable so that you can decide when, where and how the information is presented. This increases your safety, awareness and enjoyment at sea.


Volvo Penta Action Service

When a breakdown happens, Volvo Penta customers can rest assured that they will be fully supported with the technical skills and expertise needed to quickly resume operations. Volvo Penta Action Service is an around-the-clock customer care service offered in 28 languages worldwide. If an end-customer experiences a breakdown, they call into a direct line and the operator will connect them to the closest Volvo Penta industrial dealer. Full support will be offered throughout the entire case, ensuring that customers are kept apprised on progress until the issue is resolved.
