Thank you for VOLGA information.
I am doing a lot of overhaul on my Volga and is always looking for new information. My boat is -75 and got a mercedes engine with heating problems. It also has a doghouse, i have been told it is an former coastguard boat.

Take a look at russian volga hydrofoils page, you will find a picture
Hy , need urgent originall stainles steel propeller for my Volga70 , anybody can help me thanks Daniel
Sorry I wanted one my self and could not find one. But I did find a 280 Duo Prop lower unit with stainless steel props and it works great I highly recommend it.
I have an opportunity to get my hands on an volga 70 hull. Im in Florida but I heard that it is illegal to have hydrofoils in florida because of the manatee population etc. I have tried researching this but could not find anything in particular. Have you ran into any trouble with this? or heard anything concerning this issue?
I run my Volga in fort pierce and all over Florida and have had no problems. Where in Florida are you located. Also just to let everyone know I do not speak or read Russian but thanks for all the correspondance.
There is a Volga 70 sitting in a warehouse in Tallahassee FL. It is in running condition and on a trailer. Volvo Diesel. Volvo Outdrive.
Very interesting blog. When I was searching and came accross this blog while doing some research, I was extremly excited to find that you had enough information to help me make an informed decision. You’ve done this subject proud. I really don’t have any complaints except, that you should do more posting!! I love it!!!
excellent information and good writing if i may say so..right on
To own one of these boats is to answer alot of questions from everyone. Canoe owners to mega Yatch owners all just become boaters.
I was just seeking this information for a while. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this kind of informative sites in top of the list. Usually the top web sites are full of garbage.
I have the wiring diagram also but it’s to big to scan. I’m happy to answer any questions you may have.
Thanks for the great content, Very informative.
I’m responding to Syd Downie’s post about a Volga in Tallahassee. I am interested in buying one of these boats and would be iterested to learn more about this one or any others for sale.

Nice post. I was watching continuously this site and I’m impressed! Extremely useful info specifically the last part I care for such info much. I was looking for this specific information for a long time. Thankyou and best of luck.
Hy all , I am runing a small watertaxi buisniss in Croatia ( with Volga hydrofoil boats ) , if somebody need adwices about owerhauling the boats , contact me ! Greeting from Volga fun
Today we test ran for the 1st time a repowered Volga 70. It has a Casale Vee drvie and 350 chevy small block. It has plenty of power and did not leak much except @ the rudder shaft seal. I have 2 main worries. I made the prop shaft out of 1 1/8″ diameter SS shafting and used a Russian prop that came with the boat. The prop shakes and makes the long prop shaft whip about 3/8″ where it goes thru the hull about 17″ behind the drive. This is really worry some and not acceptable. I’ll have the prop inspected and balanced and see if that might help. Have others experienced shaft whipping? With my setup it was running about 30 mph at 2600 engine RPM. Turning the boat at low speed going forward was not what I would rate as good but in reverse and up on foils almost none existent.
