It is important to use genuine anodes on a Volvo Sterndrive. Volvo Penta anodes and made to exact specifications to protect the Sterndrive from corrosion. We have seen evidence of counterfeit anodes and this can lead to a total loss of the Sterndrive from corrosion.

Sterndrive propellers are available from us within this site. If you require technical help with any aspect of your sterndrive or propeller choice, please call us.

Volvo Penta Sterndrives should be serviced at the end of every season to ensure the oil is not emulsified, indicating that the shaft seals require changing. See our downloads section from the left-hand menu to download a list of oils for each Sterndrive type.
