Clint Moore is the President of Volvo Penta of America. Earlier in his 35-year boating industry career he was VP of Sales and Marketing for the competition – Mercury. He was there during the days when MerCruiser stole the march on Volvo Penta's own invention and gobbled up over 80% market share with black sterndrive product. Having been on both sides of this battle, he brings a unique perspective to the drama playing out now as a new technological innovation is sweeping across the boat building industry.
We sat down with Clint recently to get his take on the IPS-Zeus competition, as well as other matters facing owners of sterndrive and inboard-powered boats. This is the first in a series of three video interviews.
