After yet another revelation from Volvo Penta, which revolutionized the inboard market, upgraded IPS and sterndrives, it was inevitable that the wind of change could reach Italian yards.

What this means exactly for Volvo Penta Italy we asked Andrea Piccione, Marine sales manager, at the Milan headquarters.

From Götebörg, Sweden to Milan, Italy. What is the connection?

The stylistic and performance update of the D4 and D6 is reflected both in the Dpi transmission and in the Ips range. The top of the range with stern drive delivers 440 horsepower. On the engine side the upgrade is considerable, about 85% of the components have changed, without changing the overall dimensions. However, the most important innovations come from the stern drive. We went from the double cone to the electro-hydraulic clutch, with positive effects on the gradualness of the engagement, on maintenance and on other aspects. Then there is the low speed concept on sterndrives: with the double cone clutch the propeller immediately recognizes the engine speed.
