Volvo Penta EVC Upgrades

Revolutionize your experience with Electronic Vessel Control Upgrade

Volvo Penta launched its popular Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) back in 2003 and is now offering customers the opportunity to optimize their boat with the latest version, via tailored upgrades for all eligible boats. The upgrade is available worldwide, and in many cases this will enable a substantial and optimized advance of the features and capabilities of older boats. Boaters will enjoy elevated experiences and performance levels while also boosting re-sale values. EVC upgrade kits are available through Volvo Penta’s global dealer network.

Contact your local Golden Arrow Marine branch for more information –  all you need to do is provide us with your serial number and we can check what upgrades are available to you and the associated cost.

Bespoke solution
Volvo Penta introduced the earliest version of its Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) system back in 2003 and since then has continued to expand, improve and update its functionality. Today it is one of the best-loved and most advanced operating systems on the market.

The exact scope of each vessel’s EVC upgrade kit depends on factors such as the number of drivelines, which Volvo Penta drive system and engine are installed, and which generation of the Volvo Penta Electronic Vessel Control  is in place. To assess an upgrade, boat owners should contact their local Volvo Penta dealer for an individualized report on the options available. Volvo Penta estimates there are up to 50,000 boats in operation that would benefit from an upgrade of the EVC system.

“This is a bespoke solution and as far as we know the only service of its kind in the industry. Solutions are tailor-made to each boat and owner. To understand why this is necessary, it’s good to think of the advances in EVC in the same way as mobile phones. If we look back 15 to 20 years, the mobile phones of that time were only able to do a fraction of what today’s phones can do. It’s the same with our EVC. With an upgrade there’s an opportunity to get a more enjoyable and modern experience,” added David Aas.
