Powerboat solutions

THE SMARTER WAY TO EASY BOATING

Volvo Penta has been in the business of providing boating enjoyment for over a century. Our solutions are all aimed at maximizing good times – and minimizing distractions. For powerboats, we provide reliable engines and state-of-the-art propulsion solutions that ensure your time at sea is always spent in the right way: focusing on the here and now and enjoying the experience.

The power behind powerboating

The beauty of a marine powerboat lies in the speed, the performance and ease of handling. It allows you to engage in watersports, to get to a destination quicker, and to have more fun even if there is no wind. The typical powerboat also allows for more space than a sailboat, both on and below deck, and provide more shallow drafts and lower clearance heights.
