Metal Shark Boats is now offering Volvo Penta diesel sterndrives on its 29 Defiant patrol boats.

The 29 Defiant can now be ordered with twin Volvo Penta D4-225 sterndrives. The first boat was placed into service by the New York City Department of Environmental Protection.

The Volvo Penta D4-225 is a four-cylinder, 3.7-liter engine designed for rigorous commercial marine applications.The company said the electronically controlled common rail fuel system provides the performance required for applications requiring fast acceleration.

“Volvo Penta diesel sterndrives open a new dimension for the 29 Defiant platform,” Metal Shark national sales managerDean Jones said in a statement. “The sterndrive propulsion options give us a clean transom with easier access to the stern for towing or diver support, as well as excellent performance characteristics in terms of torque, speed, maneuverability and operator control.”

“Volvo Penta diesel sterndrives with our exclusive Electronic Vessel Control technology provide a complete integrated helm-to-prop solution with all components perfectly matched,” Volvo Penta vice president of marine sales for North America Marcia Kull said. “The system offers significant longevity, durability and environmental benefits over other propulsion options. We are very proud to be a part of the city of New York’s law enforcement activities.”
