Volvo Penta IPS is a complete and integrated propulsion system from the helm station to the propellers, which greatly increases quality and reliability. Designed with maneuverability as a key feature, Volvo Penta IPS offers a robust construction and, together with Volvo Penta Electronic Vessel Control (EVC), provides outstanding performance and safety. The EVC provides full monitoring, protection and diagnostics for both engine and transmission. 

DRAGON is fitted with 3x Volvo IPS 600 engines which offer 435 HP each. The boat can be easily maneuvered with the Joystick docking system. She is also specified with the Dynamic Positioning System which automatically maintains the boat´s heading and position, and safely keeps it within a very limited area, even during strong currents or windy conditions – perfect when preparing for docking, waiting to refuel, or for a bridge or lock to open.

The 3 x Volvo IPS engines are the most popular engine choice on the SR 52 Blackbird and offer top speeds of approx 45kts depending on conditions and weight. Based on Volvo Penta performance tests at a cruising speed of 30kts she is achieving impressive economy of 3.66 liters per nautical mile. This gives an approx cruising range in excess of 600nm. These figures are intended as a guide.

She is also fitted with the humphree interceptor system which automatically controls the trim and list of the boat and is far more effective than traditional trim tabs. DRAGON has also been up-graded with the coordinated turn feature which reduces the angle of list in a sharp turn

Navigation Equipment

She benefits from a triple glass cockpit installation from Volvo Penta. The Glass Cockpit System collects and displays all operator information in one place via a single interface: the multifunction, touchscreen displays. Integrated with the Volvo Penta Electronic Vessel Control system, the Glass Cockpit System provides a full overview and control of navigation and engine data. 

The operator can customise the layouts and views, to decide what, where, and when information should be displayed. Customised layouts can also be linked to specific buttons on the control and joystick. Press an assigned button and screen layouts change automatically for a specific scenario.

DRAGON has also been upgraded with the FLIR M-625L 9Hz nigh vision camera which feeds into the glass cockpit displays. The camera is very useful for example when spotting fishing marks at night or in restricted visibility. The Radar display and AIS system also integrates into the glass cockpit.
