Alaskan Fishing Success with Volvo Penta

volvo-penta-alaska-commercial-fishing - Pacific Power Group

Imagine this: it’s the start of the Alaskan fishing season. You just finished up your first week on the water and it’s a good catch – salmon, halibut and cod are in abundance. The weather is in your favor and you have plenty of time remaining in the season to have an excellent year.

Then, the worst happens – on your next run, your engine fails. It just couldn’t handle the daily requirements of a commercial fishing operation and you lose a cylinder kit, drop a valve or lose a turbo – each of which could leave you stuck on shore counting the days or weeks until you can get back on the water.

In today’s competitive fishing market, downtime can be devastating. Without a reliable engine that can get your operation through the fishing season successfully and a service partner you can count on, you might as well be a fish out of water.

When you depend on your seiner, gillnetter, trawler or fishing charter boat for your livelihood, the unbeatable reliability of Volvo Penta keeps your fishing operation going. Over 100 years of experience and innovation goes into the design of each engine, and every part is engineered and developed for high performance and durability. Volvo Penta engines provide greater uptime and longer service intervals – keeping you on the water for more days throughout the year.

Their line of heavy-duty engines have proven successful in the harsh environment in which Alaska fishermen work: Volvo Penta is a trusted name in Bristol Bay, Kodiak, the Aleutian Islands, Ketchikan, Juneau, Sitka and Prince William Sound.
