Volvo launches new V8-350

ADVERTISEMENT

Virginia-based Volvo Penta of the Americas has added a new 350 hp V8 gas engine to its line of new-generation marine sterndrives.



Based on Volvo Penta’s award-winning V8-380 engine block, the new V8-350 is more than 200 pounds lighter than other marine engines in its horsepower class. It features Variable Valve Timing (VVT) technology, which optimizes torque at low RPM while maximizing performance at high RPM. The result is faster acceleration, increased top speed and smoother response in the mid-RPM range. The new engines also exceed U.S. EPA emission requirements.



The V8-350 comes with Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) as an option, including joystick docking and the new Glass Cockpit helm station, which won the IBEX Innovation Award and METS DAME Award in 2013.
