Twin Inboard Drives

Twin Inboard Drives are two independent, side-by-side engines within a single boat and are very effective in close quarters. This effective twin drive setup uses two inboard engines, two propellers and two rudders.

Stern Drives/Outboards

Stern Drives / Outboard's are the majority of powerboats. Stern Drives are also called Inboard / Outboard (I / O). Unlike the Twin or Single Inboard which has a propeller set at a fixed angle and must rely on a rudder for turning, these engine types steer by pivoting the propeller to the right or left. Stern Drives and Outboards can also be tilted up or down to trim the boat. In the case of the Outboard, the entire engine pivots, while in the case of the Stern Drive or I / O, the "Inboard" engine remains in place while the "Outboard" stern drive unit, mounted on the outside of the transom, pivots. With either engine, the propeller wash is directed to the right or left and the water flow, known as directed thrust, forces the boat to turn.
