Earlier this summer, Volvo Penta delivered North America's 4,000th Inboard Performance System engine package, the company announced.
“Volvo Penta IPS fundamentally changed the marine marketplace,” Volvo Penta of the Americas president and CEO Clint Moore said in a statement. “For the first time in my experience, consumers start the boat show buying experience at our booth, asking us which boat brands are available with Volvo Penta IPS. We also know from market research that over 71 percent of Volvo Penta IPS owners sought out a boat that was available with IPS during their boat-shopping experience.
Volvo Penta’s 4000th IPS unit was delivered July 27 to KCS International for inclusion in its new 48 Cantius cruiser.
