Volvo Penta IPS1200 (900-hp)
Volvo Penta has enjoyed immense success with their IPS pods that have transformed the way we operate our mid-sized boats. But now they’ve developed a larger line for the large yacht market. They’ve built a prototype 70’ (21.3 m) sportfish called “Penta Gone” to demonstrate the performance and handling of the IPS system. Our recent test of that boat show that it’s a stunning success. Incredible fuel efficiency, outstanding handling while underway, and when fighting a fish, and of course effortless docking with no need for bow thrusters. Plus there’s the added benefit of the extra available space in the living quarters.
