240 ch (240 hp)
The outstanding power-to-weight-ratio delivers increased acceleration and fuel economy. The new V6-240 uses 8% less fuel while offering greater acceleration than a comparable 250 hp engine, reaching 30 MPH 14% faster, in a recent side-by-side comparison. That’s more enjoyment on the water and fewer stops at the dock to fill up.
Volvo Penta’s Speed Control automatically adjusts the throttle to maintain constant speed during load changes, like when a skier cuts hard, during hard turns or in shifting swells. It’s all about Easy Boating; the engine makes micro throttle corrections so the operator can concentrate on fun.
On the water you’ll notice exhaust fumes are virtually eliminated, because these are the cleanest marine gas engines on the market today. CO emissions are reduced by 95% at idle, exceeding current EPA, and future EU, emission requirements.
A simple decision
Our next generation lineup relies on today’s proven automotive engine platform. Volvo Penta innovation, proven technology and our industry leading five-year factory protection program make these engines an easy choice.
