One of the engines on display at the Virginia In-Water Boat Expo & SailFest was the 5.7 GXi by Volvo Penta.
Volvo’s website describes the 5.7 GXi a cast-iron V-8 with electronic fuel injection, low emissions and responsive acceleration.
Volvo’s IPS system has the propellers facing forward, pulling the boat through the water the same way aircraft propellers pull a plane through the air. The advantage is that diesel noise and exhaust are reduced.
