Upgrade Your Yacht with Assisted Docking: Key Considerations | Volvo Penta

When it comes to upgrading your yacht, one crucial factor to consider is assisted docking technology. Volvo Penta is dedicated to bringing innovative solutions to the yachting industry, and assisted docking technology is one of them. This advanced technology makes the docking process easier and safer, providing yacht owners with unparalleled convenience and comfort.

How can the Volvo Penta Assisted Docking system add value to boaters?

Docking can be a challenging task for every yacht owner, even for the most experienced ones. Factors such as wind, currents, and tight spaces can make it daunting. However, with assisted docking technology, these challenges can be overcome. By utilizing a combination of sensors, GPS, and advanced control systems, the technology assists in maneuvering and positioning the yacht accurately during the docking process.

One of the key benefits of assisted docking technology is increased safety. It helps to mitigate the risks of collisions and accidents by providing real-time information and precise control. The technology aids in avoiding obstacles, including other vessels, docks, and submerged objects, ensuring a smooth and secure docking experience.

Furthermore, assisted docking technology enhances convenience and confidence for yacht owners. It reduces the stress and uncertainty associated with docking, especially in demanding conditions. With features such as automated steering and joystick control, yacht owners can effortlessly maneuver their vessels with precision and ease.

What types of boats are qualified for the Assisted Docking retrofit upgrade?

The Assisted Docking retrofit upgrade is designed for yacht owners who have Volvo Penta IPS (Inboard Performance System) drives manufactured from 2009 onwards. If your system falls between the years 2009 and 2012, an EVC (Electronic Vessel Control) upgrade will be required as EVC E was introduced in 2012. The Assisted Docking retrofit upgrade is applicable to D6-IPS, D8-IPS, D11-IPS, and D13-IPS installations that have EVC-E4 and EVC-2 compatibility.

What is the process for retrofitting the Assisted Docking system on a boat?

The retrofitting process for the Assisted Docking system varies depending on the specific boat. It can involve anything from a straightforward software update to comprehensive upgrade kits that encompass the Volvo Penta Joystick Driving, Dynamic Positioning System (DPS), and Glass Cockpit interface. To determine the availability of Assisted Docking for their boat, customers are advised to consult with us and we will provide the necessary guidance and assistance throughout the evaluation process.

When considering an upgrade for your yacht, it is important to evaluate the compatibility and integration of assisted docking technology with your existing systems. Volvo Penta offers a range of options that can be tailored to suit different yacht models and requirements. Consult with us and we will help you determine the best solution for your specific needs.

In conclusion, incorporating assisted docking technology into your yacht upgrade can significantly enhance your docking experience. Volvo Penta’s commitment to innovation and safety ensures that you have access to reliable and advanced solutions. With assisted docking technology, you can navigate with confidence, knowing that you have the assistance you need to dock your yacht smoothly and securely.

Boat docking can be a daunting task, especially for new boat owners. However, with the right techniques, anyone can master the art of boat docking. In this blog post, we’ll share 10 tips from Volvo Penta to help you dock your boat like a pro.

Practice makes perfect: The more you practice, the better you’ll become at docking your boat. Start by practicing in calm waters with no wind or current, and gradually work your way up to more challenging conditions.

Approach gradually and at an angle: To ensure a smooth and safe docking experience, it’s important to approach the dock gradually and at a slight angle. This technique allows you to maintain control of your boat with short bursts of power, while minimizing the risk of damage to your boat or the dock.

Know your boat: Understanding your boat’s dimensions, weight, and handling characteristics is crucial when it comes to docking. Take the time to familiarize yourself with your boat before attempting to dock.

Use all available resources: Use your boat’s mirrors, gauges, and other tools to help you navigate and dock your boat safely.

Plan ahead: Before you approach the dock, make sure you have a plan in place. Consider the wind, current, and other factors that could affect your approach.

Use fenders and lines: Fenders and lines can help protect your boat and make docking easier. Make sure you have them in the right positions before you approach the dock.

Communicate with your crew: Make sure everyone on board knows their roles and responsibilities during the docking process. Clear communication is key to a successful docking.

Take it slow: Docking requires patience and precision. Take your time and approach the dock slowly to avoid any accidents.

Use the wind and current to your advantage: Sometimes, the wind and current can work in your favor. Use them to your advantage when approaching the dock.

Be aware of other boats and obstacles: Always be aware of other boats and obstacles around you when docking. Avoid collisions by keeping a safe distance from other boats and objects.

Protect Your Engine with Volvo Penta’s Active Corrosion Protection System

If you own a boat, you know that corrosion is one of the biggest threats to its longevity and performance. Saltwater, humidity, and other environmental factors can cause corrosion to eat away at your boat engine’s metal components. But what if there was a way to protect your boat from corrosion? That’s where Volvo Penta’s Active Corrosion Protection (ACP) system comes in.

What is Active Corrosion Protection System?

Volvo Penta’s ACP system is an advanced technology that protects your boat engine’s metal components from corrosion. It works by creating an electrical current that neutralizes the corrosive effects of saltwater and other environmental factors. The system is integrated into the boat’s hull and is designed to provide continuous protection, even when the boat is not in use.

Benefits of Active Corrosion Protection System

The benefits of Volvo Penta’s ACP system are numerous. Firstly, it extends the life of your boat engine’s metal components, reducing the need for costly repairs and replacements. It also improves the overall performance of your engine by ensuring that its components are working at their best. Additionally, the ACP system can help to maintain the value of your boat by preventing corrosion damage and keeping it in top condition.

Application of Active Corrosion Protection

Volvo Penta’s ACP system is suitable for a wide range of boats, from small recreational boats to luxury yachts. It is particularly useful for boats that are used in saltwater environments like in Hong Kong, where corrosion is a constant threat. The system is easy to install and can be integrated into new boats or retrofitted onto existing ones.

How Active Corrosion Protection Works

Volvo Penta’s ACP system works by creating a small electrical current that runs through the boat engine’s metal components. The current is generated by a control unit that is connected to a series of anodes that are strategically placed around the boat’s hull. The anodes are made from a sacrificial metal, such as zinc or aluminum, that corrodes more readily than the boat’s metal components. As the anodes corrode, they release ions into the water that neutralize the corrosive effects of saltwater and other environmental factors.

In addition to the anodes, the ACP system also includes a monitoring unit that constantly checks the electrical current and adjusts it as necessary. This ensures that the system is providing optimal protection at all times.

Corrosion is a major concern for boat owners, but with Volvo Penta’s Active Corrosion Protection system, you can protect your boat engine’s metal components and extend its lifespan. The ACP system is easy to install, and provides continuous protection against the corrosive effects of saltwater and other environmental factors.

Now, the ACP offer is being expanded and is available for all Volvo Penta sterndrives with the Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) platform; this includes all diesel engines and a large proportion of the gasoline sterndrives.

Invest in your boat’s future by installing Volvo Penta’s ACP system, contact us to get a quote and details of installation today!
