The POD Drive  is one of the most efficient propulsion systems, specially made for twin-engined pleasure crafts of 50 to 75 feet length, and in triple or quad configuration suitable for yachts up to 120 feet length, where each pod can be driven by a diesel engine up to 1200 hp. This system offers an increased propulsion efficiency, compared to traditional drive lines, resulting in a speed increase and a significant reduction of fuel consumption at cruising speed. Products from VULKAN Couplings also find application in these modern drive systems.
