The outstanding power-to-weight-ratio delivers increased acceleration and fuel economy. The new V6-240 uses 8% less fuel while offering greater acceleration than a comparable 250 hp engine, reaching 30 MPH 14% faster, in a recent side-by-side comparison. That’s more enjoyment on the water and fewer stops at the dock to fill up.
Volvo Penta’s Speed Control automatically adjusts the throttle to maintain constant speed during load changes, like when a skier cuts hard, during hard turns or in shifting swells. It’s all about Easy Boating; the engine makes micro throttle corrections so the operator can concentrate on fun.
On the water you’ll notice exhaust fumes are virtually eliminated, because these are the cleanest marine gas engines on the market today. CO emissions are reduced by 95% at idle, exceeding current EPA, and future EU, emission requirements.
A simple decision Our next generation lineup relies on today’s proven automotive engine platform. Volvo Penta innovation, proven technology and our industry leading five-year factory protection program make these engines an easy choice.
Simplified service points Volvo Penta’s next generation gas engines share common parts and common service locations on the engine unit, across the full lineup.
Direct fuel injection. The move from multi-port technology to direct injection means atomized gas enters the combustion chamber at 2250 psi. Compression ratios of up to 11.5:1 create a cleaner burn and fewer emissions. So more energy comes from each drop of fuel.
Variable valve timing We refused to accept the compromise of a fixed camshaft. Variable valve timing now allows each movement of the intake and exhaust valve to be optimized for speed and load. You’ll have higher torque and acceleration across the full range of RPM’s.
Lightweight aluminum block Our new lightweight aluminum blocks weigh 41 lbs. less than older cast-iron models. Low-friction, lightweight pistons and a cast aluminum oil pan help us provide up to 15% improvement in the power-to-weight ratio.
Fresh water cooling It’s no secret, engines with fresh water cooling last longer and run better. Our closed loop cooling system eliminates exposure to saltwater, providing greater engine durability and higher resale value.
Wideband oxygen sensors Our new wideband oxygen sensors read a greater range of air/fuel values. Now engine performance is optimized regardless of altitude, weather or variable fuel blends.
The Volvo Penta Saildrive 130 S for up to 55 hp gives several benefits compared with traditional inboard shafts.
Features • Minimal vibrations and sound • Low drag while sailing • High efficiency under power • Three-point mounting: no need for alignment • Integrated water intake • Electrically isolated drive and propeller • Crash absorber keeps engine in place in the event of an impact • Split anode, replaceable without removing propeller • S-Drive oil can be changed from inside the boat
Propellers for Volvo Penta Saildrive 130 S • Two-blade folding propeller for 5–40 hp • Three-blade folding propeller for 25–60 hp • Fixed propeller for Saildrive
For those who enjoy performance, 2017 sees the launch of the new D8-550 and D8-600 engines for Inboard and the new D8-IPS700 and D8-IPS800 for the IPS range – whichever propulsion system you choose, both offer more power together with lower noise and optimized fuel consumption. Available for diesel inboard and twin or triple IPS installations.
Volvo Penta's 6-cylinder D6-435 WJ is developed from the latest design in modern diesel technology.
The engine has common rail fuel injection system, double overhead camshafts, 4 valves per cylinder, turbocharger and aftercooler. Together with a large swept volume and the EVC system (Electronic Vessel Control), this results in world-class diesel performance, combined with low emissions.
