New propulsion system enables Azimut fuel efficiency
Yacht owners can enjoy fuel efficiency, a long cruising range and reduced emissions thanks to a new propulsion system.
Volvo Penta’s D13-IPS1350, from its Inboard Performance System (IPS) range, will be fitted on Azimut’s 77S model.
Alessandro Rossi, chief technical officer for Azimut Yachts, said: “The engine has more power and is very fuel efficient, like other IPS models – it is a great choice for the 77S.”
The D13-IPS1350 is suitable for yachts up to 120ft and sees the company move into the 1000hp engine sector for the first time.
The integrated package provides power equivalent to a 1350hp inboard engine for the 13-litre engine, enabling vessels to reach speeds of up to 42 knots.
It is also designed to have a low noise and vibration output, compared to a traditional inboard shaft engine.
The move to repower the 77ft vessel, the first yacht to have a triple installation of the new IPS package, follows the installation of a previous model from Volvo Penta’s IPS range into the original version of the 77S.
Mr Rossi added that the system allows for more space in the engine room and onboard for a tender or jetski.
