Buzz's Preferred Engines

Check Internet forums and you will see "What is the best choice of engine for a boat?" over and over again. Buzz's choice of engine is not based on dockside chat but what we've seen in our shop over the last 61 years. Over the years we've seen the development of some exciting things with marine engines. Through all of the changes, one thing remains the same: our engines of choice.

Inboard / Outboard (I/O) Engine: VOLVO

Innovative

Jim Wynne


As a marine engineer and a test driver, he saw how the outboards of the time had grown too clumsy to perform well. So Jim got an idea. What if you could create a new kind of engine that would combine inboard performance with the maneuvering benefits of an outboard.

So he created one.

VOLVO Engine

Better
Performance
  • Engines have higher compression ratios for better power output.
  • Direct Fuel Injection for up to 10% better fuel economy and lower emissions
  • Variable Cam Timing for better low-end torque/high-end horsepower (VCT changes when the valves open to allow the engine to draw in more air and make more usable power at both bottom end hole shot & top end speed)
Closed
Cooling Systems
  • Engines run in antifreeze for a more consistent temperature
  • New Easy Drain Cooling System that can extend your boating season
Volvo
Drive Units
  • Heavier Duty Drive System (larger gears / less stress / quieter operation)
  • Cone Clutch Shifting (smooth shifting/ no rattle-clunk when put into gear)
GM Marine
Based Engines
  • 5 Year Engine & Drive Unit Warranties
  • Proven engines that are based on 21st century engine technology
  • Lighter Weight - It's like having one less passenger, up to 31 % quicker acceleration
