Volvo Penta Aquamatic Sterndrive V8‐380‐CE/DPS is a totally integrated package, powered by the 8‐cylinder, 6.2‐liter, freshwater‐cooled, direct‐injected gasoline engine with catalyst. Working together with the perfectly matched DPS Duoprop drive and the Electronic Vessel Control system, enabling optional electronic features, this package offers very low emission levels, excellent handling, and impressive acceleration power.
COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT PACKAGE
The compact engine‐drive package facilitates installation. Thanks to the aluminum cylinder block and cylinder head, the low‐friction, lightweight pistons, and a cast‐aluminum oil pan, the power‐toweight ratio is excellent.
DIRECT INJECTION TECHNOLOGY
The direct injection fuel system enables high compression ratio with more energy coming from each drop of fuel – thus reducing both fuel consumption and emission levels.
ELECTRONIC VESSEL CONTROL
Volvo Penta Electronic Vessel Control fully integrates the engines, electronics and the unique set of optional features, such as Powertrim Assistant, Cruise Control, Glass Cockpit and more.
VARIABLE VALVE TIMING
With the variable valve timing, each movement of the intake and exhaust valve can be optimized for speed and load. Combustion will always be correct irrespective of rpm, resulting in higher torque and acceleration across the whole rpm range.
The freshwater cooling system makes the engine last longer and run better. The closed‐loop system eliminates seawater exposure inside the engine, prevents corrosion and improves the engine’s durability and resale value.
