Volvo Penta Aquamatic Sterndrive V8‐300 is a totally integrated package, powered by the 8‐cylinder, 5.3‐liter, freshwater‐cooled, direct‐injected gasoline engine with catalyst. Working together with the perfectly matched SX or DPS Duoprop drive, this package offers very low emission levels, excellent handling, and impressive acceleration power.
COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT PACKAGE
The compact engine‐drive package facilitates installation. Thanks to the aluminium cylinder block and cylinder head, the low‐friction, lightweight pistons, and a cast‐aluminium oil pan, the power‐to weight ratio is excellent.
DIRECT INJECTION TECHNOLOGY
The direct injection fuel system enables high compression ratio with more energy coming from each drop of fuel – thus reducing both fuel consumption and emission levels.
VARIABLE VALVE TIMING
With the variable valve timing, each movement of the intake and exhaust valve can be optimized for speed and load. Combustion will always be correct irrespective of rpm, resulting in higher torque and acceleration across the whole rpm range. Close
FRESHWATER COOLED ENGINE
The freshwater cooling system now standard, this makes the engine last longer and run better. The closed‐loop system eliminates seawater exposure inside the engine, prevents corrosion and improves the engine’s durability and resale value.
EASY DRAIN SYSTEM
With the Easy Drain system, the engine is drained from raw water in just minutes. Thanks to the anti‐siphon valve, this is possible with the boat still in the water.
LONG SERVICE LIFE
A propulsion system from Volvo Penta is easy to maintain. Our comprehensive range of high-quality oil, lubrication and coolant ensures uptime and top performance in the long term. Accessories include a fuel pre-filter to keep the engine in good condition.
For the first 2 years, the warranty covers the complete engine package and for the following 3 years, major components. Accessories bought simultaneously with engines will also benefit from an extended warranty period. Extended coverage available for full 5 years at additional cost.
