Volvo Penta once again improves safety and functionality on board with two innovative proposals for navigation control and attitude correction.

Screenshot 2015-01-08 at 12.06.22Created to develop innovative products to make recreational boating even safer and more enjoyable, Volvo Penta launched two products on the market this year that were created to improve safety and functionality on board: the Glass Cockpit system and the new Interceptor. In addition, starting in summer 2013, customers of Volvo Penta engines and transmissions for recreational applications will be able to rely on the dual improvements related to Volvo Penta product warranties. The basic limited warranty is extended to a maximum of two years for the entire product and an additional period of up to three years for certain major components. Accessories purchased at the same time as the engines will also benefit from an extended warranty period.

Volvo Penta’s new Glass Cockpit is a fully integrated monitoring and control system that collects all instrument panel information, including warnings and alarms, and shows it on a high-tech display. It provides a common, ergonomic design and interface for the entire dashboard, with buttons on the controls and touch-screens on the screens. Easy and intuitive display management and unique automatic guidance make navigation even easier and more enjoyable. In addition to the benefits for boaters, the Glass Cockpit system makes it possible to design extremely functional, safe and ergonomic dashboards, and what’s more, with an attractive and innovative design.

With the explicit goal of designing a new, more efficient, robust trim correction system that enhances the safety and comfort of recreational boats, Volvo Penta has taken the first step in large vessels for commercial applications. The result is an attitude correction system with a completely new design and unique features. www.volvopenta.it
