Thanks to Volvo Penta’s advanced diesel technology, electronic engine control, unit injectors and other features, the package delivers exceptionally high performance. The twin D12s propel the nearly 21-ton boat to a top speed of slightly more than 30 knots and a cruising speed of 25 knots.
“Previously, diesel engines were the rule for our boats over 40 foot,” says Mike Usina, “but we are now seeing a distinct trend that an increasing number of customers are selecting diesel engines also for boats down to 35 feet.”
