Media hits in:
My colleagues at Volvo Penta and I had an especially good run promoting a prototype race boat designed in Sweden. The Bat Boat, as it was called due to its distinctive wings, demonstrated the power of Volvo Penta’s sterndrive engines on the international race circuit.
Along the way, it garnered international media coverage:
- Popular Mechanics magazine, Design & Engineering Award
- seaQuest DSV, NBC television series appearance in opening sequence
- Discovery Channel’s Next Step high-tech cable TV show feature
- Covers and features in an array of boating magazines
Both the publicity and the actual ride were thrilling!
