The new Mangusta GranSport 33 is one of the first large yachts to benefit from the new semi-planing edition of Volvo Penta IPS1350.
The Overmarine Group‘s Mangusta line will be equipped for the first time with the Volvo Penta Inboard Performance System (IPS) package.
The company has recently expanded its Inboard Performance System (IPS) range for the benefit of semi-planing yachts. The torque curve of the new edition’s D13 propulsion system has been cleverly modified to cope with higher thrust loads at lower speeds – so you can sail comfortably up to 19 knots. The four D13 IPS 1350 engines enable a maximum speed of 26 knots.
The main advantages of the IPS package, compared to inboard installations, are increased comfort, increased fuel efficiency, and longer cruising range. As an integrated marine propulsion system, Volvo Penta IPS also offers an intuitive onboard experience through simple joystick control. Individually adjustable IPSs allows great maneuverability in narrow spaces.
Volvo Penta has focused on achieving high energy efficiency across its entire product range. Mangusta GranSport 33 complies with the strictest IMO Tier II and EPA Tier 3 emission standards.
“This boat is truly a work of art – both in design and engineering,” says Nicola Onori, Technical Director, Overmarine Group, “We are proud to be among the first superyachts to benefit from the Volvo Penta IPS1350 and the results speak for themselves. This has been a very successful partnership that we hope to continue to pursue.”
