Volvo Penta IPS is the modern inboard system for planing workboats, superior to inboard shafts in every vital aspect – handling, onboard comfort and performance. Those benefits have made Volvo Penta IPS the by far most popular pod system for planing boats. Features for intuitive driving Joystick Docking is perhaps the most well-known feature of Volvo Penta IPS, making it possible to dock and maneuver in a completely intuitive way. Dynamic Positioning System is also available, very useful in many commercial applications. The Volvo Penta controls bring integrated buttons for Low-speed mode, Single- lever mode and Cruise control, making it even easier to drive a boat with Volvo Penta IPS. With the new and type-approved IPS1050, the unique benefits of forward-facing and contra-rotating propellers are available for fast work boats, patrol boats and passenger ferries up to 30 meters and 45 knots.

    • Thank you for your response and for showing your interest in our products Mr Tudem. We are glad to hear that you appreciate the IPS system and we believe this trip will be a good way to introduce IPS to “professional” users in the Marine Commercial Industry. So far the IPS system has been intergrated in to more than 200 different hulls & designs and we have had very positive feedback from our visiting customers during this trip. Thank you & please continue to follow the PTA 80 journey around the IPS Baltic Trip. Have a great summer as well. Kind Regards Linda Ahl on behalf of Volvo Penta
