IPS models
  Volvo Penta IPS  

One 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. And what is truly unique is that Volvo Penta IPS delivers this, while at the same time reducing CO2 emissions by around 30% compared to traditional inboard shafts.

Higher Efficiency. Lower Emissions
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 around 35% better efficiency at cruising than inboard shafts. Which leads to the same reduction in exhaust emissions and fuel consumption.
