Yacht Employs Volvo Penta IPS

Thursday, November 16, 2006
The 75-ft. Lazzara LSX 75 express yacht is the world’s first boat to install four Volvo Penta IPS drive units. With the new system, the boat gains properties and performance that are entirely new for boats in these size classes. Volvo Penta’s IPS (Inboard Performance System) drive system with forward-facing propellers and steerable drive units has rapidly become a success in the marine industry. Boats equipped with the new drive system gain dramatically improved comfort, performance, environmental and maneuverability characteristics compared with traditional shaft installations. Multiple configurations Usually, the drive system exists as a twin configuration, meaning that two engines are connected to separate control units. However, during the autumn, Volvo Penta introduced the system as a triple configuration, and as of now, it is also available as a quadruple configuration. The US-manufactured Lazzara LSX Quad 75 is the first boat with quadruple IPS drive units. The Lazzara LSX has four IPS600 drive units onboard and each one provides performance equivalent to 600 horsepower, that is, a total of approximately 2,400 hp. The Lazzara LSX Quad 75 was launched in conjunction with the boat show in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in the US, and attracted major attention. Four power classes As of this autumn, Volvo Penta IPS is being offered in a total of four power classes: IPS350, IPS400, IPS500 and IPS600.
