Autumn SEASON 2009



Prices valid through December 31, 2009 unless otherwise specified. All prices are recommended retail prices. Exclude VAT.
We naturally hope that the season will continue for a while, but before long you will have to consider what you need to do for the next season to be just as successful. There is a lot to think about in connection with laying up your boat. The time you invest in the fall is time well spent that youll get in return when its time for launch again. Here are a number of tips worth considering; some are perhaps obvious to many but very important all the same. OIL AND OIL FILTER CHANGE Before you lay up your boat it can be a good idea to change the oil and oil filter. Warm up the engine, switch it off and pump all the engine oil out through the dipstick hole with the aid of an oil drain pump. Make sure you collect all of the oil into containers intended for the purpose. Then change the oil filter and fill with the correct quantity of Volvo Penta engine oil. Run the engine for a while with the new oil. If you are unsure which type of oil you should use, ask your local Volvo Penta dealer.
WHEN TAKING YOUR BOAT OUT OF THE WATER Take a good look at everything that is revealed below the waterline when the boat is taken out; this is when youll get the chance to discover every little detail before your boat is placed on stands or in large racks. EMPTY THE TANKS AND CHARGE THE BATTERIES Remember to empty the water tanks and hot water heater properly so that they do not hold water over the winter. Also remember to charge the battery. A battery will be seriously damaged if it is left discharged over a long period.
Every engine has an Operators Manual that contains more detailed information regarding oil changes etc. The Operators Manual specifies maintenance intervals for your particular engine. A PDF of your Operators Manual is available for download at Pleasure boat engines; Parts & Service
HIGH SEASON FOR MICRO ORGANISMS While your boat takes a break over winter there are others that go to work with a vengeance. Micro organisms flourish in the condensation that forms in the fuel tank. There are many opinions as to whether the tank should be full or completely empty. Check what applies at your boatyard. Either way it is important to have new fuel filters when it really matters; they can save a lot of money and prevent serious engine breakdowns. You will find all of our fuel filter offers on page 6. COOLING SYSTEM In order to avoid overheating damage you must regularly inspect and maintain the cooling system. Carefully inspect the impeller and all hoses and hose clamps when it is time to conserve the cooling system. Take out the impeller and store it in a plastic bag in a cool place over winter. Remember, it is always good to have a spare impeller and gaskets in reserve. ACCESSORIES FROM VOLVO PENTA AND QL Fall and winter are perfect times to equip your boat with new improvements and practical accessories. Volvo Penta has a wide assortment of accessories that can increase comfort on board. On pages 10-11 you will find, among other things, our Boat Trim System that allows you to get up onto the plane faster and provides a smoother ride, while you avoid having hydraulic planing tabs protruding from the stern.

Every year hundreds of engines and drives are stolen around our coasts and in our lakes. Many boatyards are unguarded, and it can be difficult to set a value on e.g. a sterndrive. Ask your Volvo Penta dealer what they can offer regarding storage and lay up.
Your engine is your best friend when you are at sea or out on a lake. Perfect engine function is above all a safety concern. Always use genuine Volvo Penta parts to ensure the highest performance in your Volvo Penta engine. Engines in pleasure boats are exposed to harder wear than other engines, because they are driven extremely intensely for short periods, and are then not used at all for a long while. Complete service kits are available at your Volvo Penta dealer to make maintenance easier, and its here youll find the right oil for your particular engine.

Our new engines have very low emission levels. Catalyzer parts are completely integrated into the aluminum exhaust system. The fuel system also incorporates accurate monitoring and diagnostics devices; the helmsman is informed immediately if exhaust purification is not working optimally.

6-cylinder, direct-injected marine diesel engine with charge air compressor. turbocharger, aftercooler and Duoprop drive. 169 kW (230 hp)*
* Crankshaft power according to ISO 8665


Compressor-charged HiTech engine
Volvo Pentas 6-cylinder KAD43P is a compressor- and turbocharged high performance engine with aftercooler producing high torque at low engine speeds. This means unique acceleration properties and excellent drivability.

Reliable marine engine

KAD43P is a reliable and economic marine engine with considerable power resources, developed for planing craft. The engine is compact and has an advantageous weight to power ratio making it excellent for both single and multi-engine installation.

Direct injection

Direct injection (DI) results in a low thermal load and low fuel consumption compared with swirl chamber engines (IDI) with the same cylinder capacity.
KAD43P with DP-E Duoprop drive


The engine is supercharged with a mechanically driven compressor and an exhaust turbocharger. The compressor tted with silencers supplies compressed air at low engine speeds and while accelerating. The turbo takes over when the charging pressure has reached the proper level. The interaction of compressor and turbo produces high torque over the whole speed range and this contributes to cleaner exhaust gases and fuel economy giving excellent acceleration and driving characteristics.

Easy to service

The engine is designed for easy maintenance and service. All the important service points on the engine are conveniently located at the top and the port side.
uine Volvo Penta Parts as well as skilled personnel to ensure that you enjoy the best possible service.

Technical description:

Engine and block
Cylinder block and cylinder head made of cast iron for good corrosion resistance and long service life Oil-cooled pistons with two compression rings and one oil scraper ring Replaceable wet cylinder liners Replaceable valve seats Seven-bearing crankshaft

DP drive

The DP drive with its twin counter-rotating propellers produces a harmonious drive unit with unbeatable characteristics in the boat in terms of speed, acceleration and fuel economy. It also produces less noise and vibrations, better steering and maneuvering characteristics, better grip in the water and a shorter time to planing compared with single propeller systems. The drive features standard power steering for maximum driving comfort.


The air heats up and expands when it is compressed. In other words, it takes up more space. The aftercooler cools the compressed and heated air and raises its oxygen content so that the engine can use the fuel more efciently.

Engine mounting

Flexible mounting which provides sound and vibration insulation. The engine has two adjustable rubber mounts in front and rubber suspension between ywheel housing and transom shield
Low exhaust emission levels
The direct injection, supercharging and aftercooler contribute to minimizing noxious exhaust emissions and enhancing overall enjoyment of boating. The engine is certied according to SAV and IMO.
