A new Volvo B8R SC5 has joined the fleet of Irish family firm Kennedy Coaches. Owner and director Patrick Kennedy says he wanted to extend his company’s growing fleet and as a previous customer of Volvo, the B8R SC5 was the perfect fit. This is a repeat order of a vehicle with the same specification previously delivered to the operator.
“We have previously been a customer of Volvo Bus and of Sunsundegui and it is exciting to add another great vehicle to our fleet,” says Kennedy. “The reliability and safety of Volvo mixed with the style of the Sunsundegui body, means that the B8R is a perfect match for the sort of customers we cater for. For instance, we provide services for many golf tours and charters requiring high standards. Luxury and comfort is an integral part of the package and the Volvo B8R delivers just that.
“The SC5 bodywork looks great and its features, both exterior and interior will definitely prove very popular with our passengers. The experience for our drivers is also an important factor when purchasing a new vehicle, as the B8R provides a comfortable workplace for the driver.”
Dave Porter, Volvo coach sales manager, adds: “Having been established for almost 70 years, Kennedy Coaches are a loyal Volvo customer and provide some of the most luxurious coach experiences in Ireland.
