Volvo Penta IPS Channel Trip 2013

1850 NAUTICAL MILES | 7 LEGS | 6 STOPOVERS | 27 DAYS

Captains chair Posted on June 13, 2013 by , Volvo Penta

During the transfer to Ijmuiden we were so happy that our captain drove the whole night, never even asking for our help.
He was sitting in his chair, looking out over the dark sea commited to bring us all safely to Ijmuiden.
He’s a hero, we all said! Until today, when I sat in his “Ullman chair”.

I realized that while we were giving our legs a long workout (we were standing) he was sitting in one of the most comfortable creations ever made.

Next time I’ll take the night shift ;-)

This summer Volvo Penta takes one of its test boats down to the English Channel to show dealers, customers, press and other interested the benefits of the Volvo Penta IPS high performance pod system. One of the stopovers is at Southampton SEAWORK exhibition in the UK. This trip is inspired by the successful Volvo Penta IPS Baltic Trip that was performed during summer 2011.
