Standards & Options
The Whittley Marine association with Volvo product spands back over 40 years, with Whittley Marine being one of the first boat builders in the country to supply Volvo powered boats. Since then the engine bays of Whittley’s have evolved to house the new technology that Volvo has produced and lead the industry with. In more recent years, Volvo has continued to expand its product range, with not only a new generation of engines but to know include engine and battery management, flushing systems and integration into Garmins head units.
A Volvo Penta engine, is more than an engine that gets installed into your boat package, the partnership know extends further through out the whole boat. Whittley along with Volvo Penta encourage users to experience these new advancements in the Whittley boat packages.
“Quality is what makes Volvo the market leader in marine propulsion. In fact Volvo has driven most advancements in marine propulsion since its early beginnings as the first stern drive engine manufacturer and also the first to deliver to the market the industry leading duo prop drive. A Volvo Penta powered Whittley boat, leaves the factory, tested, prop correctly and built to provide you with years of unrivalled performance, longevity and reliability“
Eventha Peroni, Plant Manager, Whittley Marine
VOLVO ENGINE MANAGEMENT
For reliable and easy display of engine data
The innovative new Engine Management System removes traditional analogue gauges and replaces these with digital gauges through either a Garmin or Glass Cockpit 7”,12” or 16” MultiFunction screen. At one glance users can now have accurate fuel flow figures and full automotive-like integration and engine data. The new system offers users a clean smooth dash with one hole cut for the Garmin Screen. It removes cumbersome wiring and mechanical gauges - known trouble spots in boats - while offering incredibly accurate data to the operator. It’s all accessible at the touch of a button. The Engine Management System is available on engines in the Volvo range from 200 to 430HP.

BATTERY CONTROL MODULE
Removing common issues associated with battery and power management
The new Battery Control Module acts as a powerhub for the entire electrical system, removing the need for traditional barrel style switches, replaces them with the convenience and safety of multiple fully sealed membrane push buttons. The system effectively manages the charging and distribution of power between batteries from the motor and power usage throughout the boat. The clearly labelled membrane buttons on the front of the Battery Control Module allows owners to turn batteries one and two on or off or link them together. The Battery Controller Module is also wired directly to the engines alternator, with unrestricted flow of power from the engine to the batteries. This enables batteries to be charged more quickly, via less running time and promotes battery energy life. There is also a built in battery charger - just plug into any 240 volt power source and charge your batteries.
