Volvo Penta Boat Propellers
Volvo Penta is the number one innovator in drive technology for boats.
1959 saw the introduction of the Aquamatic, the world's first in what is now known as sterndrives. In 1974, the Saildrive gave builders of sailboats and yachts a drive alternative with better performance, lower noise and vibrations.
In 1982 Volvo introduced the Duoprop. It was the biggest event in boating since the propeller was invented. Twin counter rotating propellers bite hard to produce unparalleled thrust, straight and true tracking even in reverse with faster acceleration to plane. You will find Duoprops on regular boats, cruisers and yachts.
Today's line-up of drives is second to none, with the whole range launched in the last 4 years.
Every Volvo Penta drive is a part of a complete propulsion system. The drive is specially developed to work with a series of engines and you cannot freely combine drives and engines. This integration means you get:
Exceptional efficiency with
- High performance
- Low fuel consumption
- High reliability
- Long service life
- Low noise and vibrations
- Loads of driving fun!
All props listed below other than the SP and SX drives are Duoprops.
