The 'One Drive'

The ‘One Drive' system has an electro-magnetically actuated hydraulic clutch transmission, the source of Ilmor's unique smooth shift experience. Especially noticeable in the twin engine configuration, the hydraulic clutch system quietly engages and disengages gears at an incredibly responsive two-shifts-per-second.The twin propeller drive unit is built with precision forged gears for increased durability and is hard anodized for superior corrosion protection. All drive systems are complete with power assisted steering and hydraulic trim.The ‘One Drive' transom has a significantly larger exhaust output than comparable systems, minimizing back pressure for improved engine performance.

The Ilmor ‘One Drive' utilizes sterndrive components provided by engineering partner Yanmar Marine, already in operation with their diesel sterndrive systems which attests to the product's reliability and durability. The ‘One Drive' system is US EPA, CARB and EU-RCD emissions compliant, as well as EU-RCD sound emissions compliant with through-propeller exhaust. Among other unique features, the Ilmor ‘One Drive' can be customized for an added aesthetic effect by the customer.

The 'One Touch'

On twin engine boats, Ilmor offers the optional ‘One Touch' joystick system for easy vessel maneuverability at low speeds, especially for docking. The ‘One Touch' system includes Ilmor's informative MERLIN engine monitoring display, and can be equipped with auto-pilot compatibility.
