Volvo Penta prides itself in being a leader in marine industry innovation.
Volvo Penta IPS, (Inboard Performance System), and Forward Drive innovations were conceived because of their “easy boating” motto. These groundbreaking solutions make boating easy, enjoyable, and more fun.
The unique IPS system improves power, performance, and onboard comfort for operators in both commercial and leisure applications. The system increases control, maneuverability, and fuel efficiency and allows for many beneficial optional features and functions. The key to these exceptional qualities lies in the forward-facing, twin counter-rotating propellers with individually steerable IPSs under the hull.
Thousands of applications with distinctive, forward-facing, twin counter-rotating propellers and individually steerable pods have been installed worldwide in hundreds of boat models. A few of the many benefits when compared to inboard shafts are up to:
- 40% longer cruising range
- 20% higher top speed
- 30% reduced fuel consumption
- 30% less CO2 emissions
- 50% lower perceived noise
- More onboard space
