Luhrs' IPS 35 Convertible

For the convertible enthusiast, the ease of driving an inboard propulsion system (IPS) boat is here. The Luhrs Marine Group is launching its 35 Convertible with Volvo Penta's ever-popular IPS drive system at the Miami International Boat Show February 14-18. The builder initially put the IPS system, which utilizes a joystick system married to forward-facing, azipod-type prop sets that offer on-a-dime maneuverability, in its 31-foot Express last fall. The success of that launch has prompted the builder to expand its use of IPS to its popular convertible line.

Over the last few years, IPS has been proven to enhance the driving and docking experience for boaters as well as offer up significant fuel savings in the process. If you'll be around the Miami show on VIP day (February 14), the builder will provide the marine-industry with its first look of the new boat.
