Of all your major investments, new engines for your boat can make the difference between pleasure and pain, safety and disaster, cruising and getting towed in.
At Outdrive Exchange, we’ll work hard to fit your budget to repower your vessel from a choice of many top-name brands. And once you’re back out to sea, we’ll make sure you get home safely with factory-trained preventative maintenance on everything we sell.
Volvo Penta – Diesel
As a Volvo Penta service center, Outdrive Exchange offers professional services for all Volvo outdrives – gas and diesel. Ranging from 140 to 400 hp, the diesel Aquamatic engines gives sport performance to 20–45 foot boats. The engines comply with the most stringent environmental demands in their respective power classes: the US EPA Tier 2 for D9, D11 and D13 and the more stringent US EPA Tier 3 for D1 to D6.
Volvo Penta – Gasoline
Volvo Penta, the undisputed leader in marine innovation, sets the new standard in gas engine technology. Next generation V6 and V8 engines offer unparalleled fuel economy and performance, while far exceeding the toughest emissions standards on the planet.
These models are the first in Volvo’s new line of premium gas engines offering superior power-to-weight ratios for increased torque and acceleration at every throttle setting. Each features a state-of-the-art freshwater cooling system to eliminate internal saltwater exposure and direct injection provides more power with less displacement. One look and it’s clear, these new engines are a first of their kind in the marine industry.

Duoprop with its twin propellers doubles the blade area. Duoprop’s counter-rotating propellers outbalances each other, eliminating the transverse force.
Duoprop halves the power input per propeller which means: half load, half tip looses and half induced losses. The low load also significantly reduces cavitation.
Duoprop provides up to 30 % faster acceleration and produces a top speed some 5 % faster than any conventional single propeller system.
Lower fuel consumption
With twin counter-rotating propellers, energy losses are minimized and you can stay planing at lower revs. That’s why Duoprop can help you save large amounts of fuel.
Duoprop tracks straight. Check over the transom of any Duoprop powered boat. The evidence of cleaner, unruffled delivery of power is there in the wake.
Handling is better too
Whether at speed, round the buoys or when docking in a crowded marina. The grip is there – even when making sharp turns at high speeds. Duoprop also reduces the boats tendency to roll.
Lower vibration and noise levels
Duoprop produces lower vibration and noise levels due to the fact that the shock pulses are distributed over more blades. With its counter rotating propellers it’s almost cavitation free.
