Volvo Penta Introduces New Engines to U.S. Market


This year at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Volvo Penta presented its 8-liter diesel engine and new IPS drives to the U.S. market. These products are part of Volvo Penta’s Easy Boating initiative, which seeks to optimize system performance and fuel efficiency while improving customer experience.

Volvo Penta’s D8 engine is available for both IPS and inboard shaft applications. The D8 offers torque across the full range of RPMs to ensure efficient cruising speed and excellent maneuverability. The D8 also boasts low noise and vibration levels. Volvo Penta has also expanded its IPS range with the D8-IPS700 and the D8-IPS800. These additions will make IPS an option for a wider variety of boats.
