Volvo Penta Releases Display System for Water Sports


Wakesurfing, wakeboarding and water skiing are about to get an upgrade thanks to a new display and control system from Volvo Penta: Water Sport Control.

The system is available for the Forward Drive, electronic vessel control (EVC) and Glass Cockpit systems, and makes it easy to set up boats for water sports. Profiles for up to three individuals' custom speed and trim settings can be stored in the system.

“Wakesurfing is one of the fastest growing trends in today’s boating market, and we’re seeing even more boat builders bringing to market a new class of boats optimized for water sports enabled by Volvo Penta’s Forward Drive technology,” says Ron Huibers, president and CEO of Volvo Penta of the Americas. “The Water Sport Control is the latest in our long line of innovations that reflect our Easy Boating vision, applying new automation technologies to make it easier for more people to have fun on the water.”
