Sterndrive lower units have faced serious challenges during the last 50 years as anyone who has owned one in saltwater can attest. Volvo Penta has introduced its solution to this problem -- its a new lower unit called "Ocean X." The whole unit has a titanium-ceramic coating which has been applied using a SOTA electro-deposition process. Volvo Penta says its new drive is up to four times more corrosion resistant than conventional drives in saltwater.

All fuel consumption numbers are the total for all engines in the boat. Speeds are measured with Stalker ProSports radar gun or GPS. Fuel consumption (gallons per hour) measured with Floscan digital fuel-flow meter or by on-board factory-installed diagnostic instruments. Range is based on 90% of published fuel capacity. Sound levels determined using Radio Shack digital decibel meter on A scale. 68 dBA is the level of normal conversation. Time to plane is measured from start of acceleration to formation of rooster tail behind boat.
