Volvo Penta Drives

Volvo Penta is the number one innovator in drive technology for boats. 1959 saw the introduction of the Aquamatic, the world’s first in what is now known as sterndrives. In 1974, the Saildrive gave builders of sailboats and yachts a drive alternative with better performance, lower noise and vibrations. Today’s line-up of drives is second to none, with the whole range launched in the last 4 years.
To ensure the best possible drive systems we develop, manufacture and service everything from engines to drives and propellers our selves. Read more about these and other groundbreaking Volvo Penta innovations on the Innovations website. Every Volvo Penta drive is a part of a complete propulsion system.
