Volvo Penta V8-380
Today at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Volvo Penta formally announced its new V8-380, a new gasoline stern drive that had recently been popping up in engine compartments of some well-known manufacturers. It’s a 380-hp engine with a 364 cid. The engine features variable valve timing that gives it low end torque and high end horsepower, while trimming 270 pounds from the old 8.1L model and burning 12 percent less fuel. It’s geared towards single engine and twin engine boats to 40 feet. Looks for this engine to start appearing in the certified test results of some of our upcoming boat tests, and find out more at Volvo Penta.
