At sea

We are with you out at sea, whether you are on holiday in your pleasure boat or travelling by passenger ferry to work.

Sea conditions may be the roughest imaginable when the coast guard or marine rescue services are out on duty. The sea can also be calm and pleasant when you are travelling on a ferry or fishing from your private leisure boat. Volvo Group has marine engines both for leisure time and for commercial business.

Marine leisure time

We are redefining premium boating power through innovation, and offer a number of systems that allow you to relax and make the most of your trip in your leisure boat. Innovations such as IPS, Inboard Performance System and Forward Drive that make boating easy, enjoyable and more fun. The forward-facing propellers have revolutionised the boating world and made marine vessels considerably easier to navigate. “Easy Boating” is a concept that expands on these developments with a range of solutions throughout the entire boat – from prop to helm.

Volvo Penta is the world’s biggest producer of diesel engines for leisure boats and the leading developer of marine propulsion systems.
