The Glass Cockpit seamlessly integrates industry-leading navigational features from Garmin with the power of the Volvo Penta Electronic Vessel Control System. Easily access and control engine, driveline and navigation data from the comfort of one, adaptable multi-function screen. You can even turn cabin lights or music on and off, at a touch.
Steer with one hand with perfect response and minimal effort. You can utilize the ergonomic Joystick for next-level control of your bow thruster, engine thrust and steering, or both in unison, depending on your preferred installation.
With Cruise Control, both engines automatically sync to the same RPM, so you can find your perfect cruising speed and stay in full control of your journey ahead. With only your fingertip, you can fine-tune your rpm – giving you the freedom to choose exactly how fast, how fuel efficient, and how comfortably you explore the ocean.
A yacht autopilot system supports you, to help reduce captain fatigue so you can be your best at the helm. The Volvo Penta Autopilot with Shadow Drive is a complete and fully integrated auto-steering system, for accurate boat navigation you can trust.
Enjoy a seamless experience at sea, as your boat easily keeps to its desired heading. Autopilot works in sync with electronic steering and the Glass Cockpit System, both of which are required for installation.
The optional Auto Guidance feature searches through all relevant charts to create a visual route for you to follow, avoiding shallow water, buoys and other charted obstacles. Linked with the Volvo Penta Autopilot, Auto Guidance will show you the way.
The Dynamic Positioning System (DPS) automatically holds your boat position, despite of wind and current. Integrating seamlessly with the joystick, maintaining your heading and position is simpler than ever.
Simply press a button on the Joystick Control and your boat’s position and heading is safely kept within a precisely limited area, even in rough conditions. Easily disengage the system by moving the control levers or pressing the button once again.
Twin GPS receivers in the two antennas allow the system to determine your boat’s position and heading. Sophisticated software in the Electronic Vessel Control system transforms the received data into steering angles, gear shifts and throttle positions to hold your boat’s position.
When docking, you and your crew can avoid stress and relax as you prepare your fenders and lines. The DPS also gives you more freedom to safely plan a change in the route or to hold your position, whether that be inshore, offshore or in the harbor.
Available for boats between 20-45 feet, it’s the optimal mix of reliability and performance. Powerful and responsive, yet fuel efficient, the Aquamatic Sterndrive gasoline or diesel engines are perfect for both leisure cruising and thrilling watersports.
The Assisted Docking system enhances your control as captain. From moving in straight lines without manual compensation, to rotating around a fixed point – docking your boat is now easier than ever before.
The larger effective propeller blade area of the Duoprop makes our Aquamatic Sterndrive’s driveline more efficient, helping you save up to 30% on fuel consumption. Direct fuel injection enables you to get more energy from each and every drop of fuel.
Volvo Penta has engineered the Aquamatic Sterndrive to work seamlessly as one system, from the controls to the engine, all the way to the drive and propellers. This contributes to lower emissions and far better maneuverability.
Enjoy robust low-end torque, exhilarating power and exceptional mid-range response. Delivering impressive performance with rapid acceleration, it’s optimal for all the on-the-water-fun you can imagine.
