The Coastal Series improves maintenance and ownership.
The engines and drives that comprise Volvo Penta’s Coastal Series mark a watershed in this popular marine drive train.
Whether used to re-power an existing boat, or in new boat installations, the Coastal Series incorporates a host of anti-corrosion and ease of maintenance features that make owning a boat powered one easier. These same qualities provide the boat owner with more confidence. We spent a week running these engines and explored every feature. These include a special aluminum alloy, a proprietary coating process, the Active Corrosion Protection system (ACP), a seven year transferrable warranty, and a comprehensive monitoring system.
