What are some Advantages of Volvo Penta Marine Outdrives?

Each Volvo outdrive is comprised of eco-friendly parts. These outdrives produce fewer emissions to help marine life to flourish. Volvo outdrives utilize large alternators that are designed to provide a quality electrical output at low speeds and when the parts are idling. For example, the Volvo Penta V6-255 has an amp alternator that is rated an immense 75 amps.

Volvo continually improves their units with updated parts to increase the power-to-weight ratio of their outdrives.

What kind of maintenance does an outboard need?
  • If possible, keep your boat stored out of the water. Keeping it dry will reduce any potential damage that can be caused by barnacles and other marine elements.
  • Change the oil often, and use the recommended oil for your model.
  • Check your oil after each outing. This will help verify that the oil seal is still good and help you spot any potential issues.
  • Every six months, change the oil, gaskets, anodes, and other such parts.
  • Replace your clamps and bellows every twelve months.
