Hi, I am looking at a 2007 4460 with the IPS 500 Volvo Pentas. Any advice, suggestions or warnings would be much appreciated. Also, anything to pay particular attention to during Seatrout or survey would also be much appreciated. It’s a saltwater boat with just under 500 hours.

I had an 09' with the same motors. Just make sure all of the updates have been done to the motors and have a MOTOR survey completed by a qualified Volvo mechanic.

I tried responding yesterday but I see it never made it to the board, sorry if it pops up and this becomes a duplicate. I purchased a 09' 4460 new in 08' with the same motors. It was a fantastic boat and you will not be disappointed in its performance and quality as long as it was taken care of by the previous owner. I sold it in 2014 with almost 800 hrs. on it and never had issues, but I serviced it whenever it needed and then some. I would DEFINATELY get two survey's done. One for the hull and another from a certified Volvo/IPS mechanic. There were updates that needed to be done on the early IPS boats so it is important that those were done and the Volvo tech can look for those.
This summer we bought a 5260 out of Florida with the 600's and I had both surveys done. It paid off because we had boost issues with the stbd motor and the tech found it and it was repaired. We were bringing it back to the Chesapeake and did not want surprises on our way home. Hope this helps...
