The new vehicle will be used for domestic and international excursion breaks, together with private hire contracts and mini breaks. “The B12B was perfect for L.L. Travel’s requirements,” explained Volvo’s Regional Coach Sales Manager, Duncan Crosby. “They were looking for a good quality coach that would stand the test of their busy schedules and in the Volvo 9700 they have the perfect vehicle”.
Specified with Volvo’s fuel efficient rear mounted DH12E 12 litre engine - rated at 420hp and coupled to the I-Shift gearbox - the 12.3m 49/51 seater vehicle features full climate control, satellite navigation and a CD/DVD player and multi-changer.
Stylish and elegant – the B12B interior utilises the Prestige Plus finish and TS 2000 Comfort Plus seats, featuring leather headrests, integral 3-point safety belts, adjustable squabs, footrests, armrests and grab handles.
With low interior noise and aircraft styled luggage compartments the new vehicle is designed to carry passengers in luxury. Fitted with a centre demountable toilet, a coolbox and hot running water, the B12B meets the very highest levels of quality.
Sunblinds on the windows protect passengers eyes during low sun periods and individual passenger lighting provides illumination during night travel.
Two internal flick down monitors offer a superior entertainment package for passengers, whilst a reversing camera provides extra support to the driver during difficult reversing manoeuvres.
L.L. Travel has had the vehicle customised in white with their livery emblazoned across the side in black. Alcoa Dura-Bright wheels provide high quality, reliable performance as well as an aesthetic appeal. The finished article is an uncomplicated looking stylish coach, ideal for multi-purpose useage.
“The coach has all the features necessary for long distance travel,” continued Duncan Crosby, “I hope that we can continue our relationship with L.L. Travel going forward”.
