It’s just two weeks until the latest, greatest and most powerful marine engines will be on show at SCIBS including the world leading supplier of power solutions to marine and industrial applications, Volvo Penta.

Avid boat lovers and clued-up manufacturers will want to schedule a few hours exploring the broad range of inboard and outboard motors on offer in the aptly named Engine Room on the Promenade.

Did you know Volvo Penta’s new DPI sterndrive enables silent shifting and the ability to drive your boat at very low speeds resulting in outstanding manoeuvrability and comfort?

Volvo Penta believes that boating should be as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. Their philosophy, “easy boating”, is the driving force behind numerous innovations, including their Assisted Docking, a ground-breaking system making the docking process easier for beginners and seasoned captains. Visit the Volvo Penta stand at SCIBS to discover five ways this technology can give the captain enhanced control when navigating in crowded marinas or docking in tight spaces. It really is the next generation of marine automation.

Similarly, the Volvo Penta Dynamic Positioning System (DPS) automatically maintains the boat’s heading and position, keeping the boat within a very limited area, even during strong currents or windy conditions. It’s the perfect option when preparing for docking or waiting to refuel.

If it’s complete control of your vessel’s engine status you’re interested in, turn your smart phone into a portable dashboard display with the Volvo Penta Easy Connect app – you can stay connected wherever you are.

Volvo Penta is a proud sponsor of this year’s Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.
