Volvo's revolutionary drive system made clear

Ancasta are putting on an IPS demo weekend on 10 and 11 March at Brighton Marina.

Volvo changed leisure boating when they launched their forward-facing props two years ago. The system uses a joystick (pictured) to make close-quarters manoevring incredibly easy.

Ancasta’s Rodman UK Sales Manager Hugh Rayner says: “Our owners have been tremendously impressed by the safety and ease of Volvo IPS, which we fit in practically all of our 38′ and 41′ cruisers.

“In fact, many would never consider returning to a conventional shaft-drive boat.

“The everyday advantages of IPS such as hugely reduced sound levels, lack of sooty exhaust and improved economy, only add to the sensational handling characteristics of the Rodman Yachts we fit.

“Once you have driven these boats, it is immediately obvious why customers are drawn to them – it simply removes all the pressure from the crew – and that confidence is great to see.”

Visitors will also be able to view boats on the water and question Ancasta’s qualified ABYA (Association of Brokers and Yacht Agents) staff on brokerage issues.
