Chris Landry of Soundings and Soundings Trade Only interviewed Marcia Kull, Vice President of marine sales at Volvo Penta, about the V8-380 and the V8-225, and a bit about the integrated joystick steering/autopilot that’s on the horizon for diesel engines.

DPH-C, The New Drive
Email or Call for Special Introductory Pricing
Volvo Penta has developed a new and improved DPH drive, the DPH-C. Once again, the Volvo engineers looked how they could improve on things. They didn’t change much on the outside, but made some key improvements on the inside to increase longevity. These include a redesigned bearing box with new roller bearing, gear set with improved tooth geometry, improved oil flow and reinforced suspension fork.These, combined with several changes to lower gear, are apparent in the new D6-400 DPH.
