Volvo Penta Coastal Series Corrosion Protection Package

The Volvo Penta Coastal Series corrosion protection package was featured alongside other top boating products of 2022 in the May issue of Boating Industry, the boating trade magazine.

The Coastal Series corrosion protection package with seven-year coverage for V6 and V8 gasoline sterndrives and Forward Drives incorporates multiple advanced anti-corrosion technologies and countermeasures to maximize protection of the engine and drive components in saltwater. Volvo Penta’s V6 and V8 engines use the latest automotive technology, all-aluminum blocks and closed-loop freshwater cooling. The integrated Coastal Series package includes advanced titanium-ceramic coatings, aluminum exhausts, and sensors with audible and visual warnings of potential saltwater intrusion in the bellow or drive gear lubricant.

The transom flush feature is easily accessible at the transom and in the engine room, facilitating easy engine and drive flushing after each use to ensure no residual saltwater stays within the system.
