The Med Trip heads to the Adriatic Coast

The Volvo Penta IPS Med Trip made a quick stopover in the tiny Montenegrin resort town of Budva this week, seeing 20 guests before heading up the Adriatic Coast.

Medtrip_budvaBudva, Montenegro, was one of the Med Trip’s shortest stopovers. With a tight schedule and no off-day scheduled between the Budva stopover on the 4th and the Split, Croatia, stopover the next day, the PTA80 and her crew left the Montenegrin port in a hurry on Wednesday. To make it to their next port in time, the crew held sea trials in the morning — rather than after lunch — and left port by 1 pm.

Though the stop was a quick one, the Volvo Penta team still managed to meet with 20 people from Montenegro and Serbia — as well as operators and representatives from a shipyard and the local Volvo Penta Center in Romania who made a lengthy two-day drive to attend the seminars. Attendees included maritime police, the Montenegrin ministry of defense, naval architects, journalists and municipal authorities.

But even though the stopover was a brief one, Volvo Penta IPS didn’t fail to make a big impression. The quote of the day came from a boat designer who said, “The IPS system is so easy, anyone can use it—and that’s a great benefit to our business.”
