The new vehicle was recently delivered to the Waterford based operator and met with universal approval for its excellent driveability and its overall aesthetic appeal.
Suirway Coaches’ Managing Director, Brian Lynch explained, “This vehicle offers us the complete package. We’ve had Volvo coaches before and they’ve always performed admirably. So it seemed like the perfect choice.
“The B11R offers us capacity, performance, driveability and style all in one vehicle. We will be using it across our extensive tour programme, but also for some private hire work as and when required.”
He continued, “We also get good back-up and support from Volvo Bus and in addition Coach Sales Manager, James Hyde was very thorough in everything he did for us. Overall it was a great experience with Volvo Bus and I’d certainly purchase more vehicles from them in the future.”
Suirway Coaches’ new 55-seater vehicle is liveried in blue and green and is specified with Volvo’s fuel efficient, D11C 11-litre diesel engine, rated at 450hp, coupled to the Volvo I-Shift gearbox.
The new coach also features an onboard toilet and entertainment facilities including a radio, CD & DVD player and TV monitors. It is also equipped with climate control, a drinks area and comfortable passenger seating.
“It was the Volvo and Sunsundegui SC7 combination that Suirway Coaches really liked,” explained James Hyde. “The flexible nature of our B11R chassis means that we are able to partner with a number of bodybuilders and the Sunsundegui is a popular choice.”
