IVSS are a small independent firm working from a Farm based workshop on Romney Marsh in Kent. Owned by Wayne a highly experienced Volvo engineer they offer a fantastic alternative to buying costly new outdrives and transom shields. We discovered them when I needed two new transom shields for my Sunseeker Thunderhawk.
I was quoted £5000 for new Volvo units…ouch, so I sought a more cost effective alternative. I discovered IVSS who totally restored both my Volvo 290 DP transom shields for £1500.
The work list was extensive, including a lot of machining of one off stainless steel components and supplying new steering helmets for a fraction of Volvo’s quoted prices. The completed items were like new, freshly sprayed with new anodes, in fact you could not tell the difference from new items. With very low overheads they can offer a great service at low rates.
Also on offer is an exchange service on both outdrives and transom shields.
