Our Easy Boating concept is far more than a wish for easy, safe and enjoyable boating. It's a dedicated strategy for making your boating the carefree activity it should be. But most of all, it comprises an increasing number of useful, hands-on products and functions that put you in charge the easy way. Take the opportunity to customize your boat with the options of your choice - when you order a new boat or when you wish to upgrade your present boat. Talk to your Volvo Penta dealer for advice!
