Explanation:
"The Volvo Penta Duoprop can add dramatic power to your boat"
We are speaking about the BOAT. Therefore it is not a "пропеллер", but "винт".

Duoprop without changes


Explanation:
This situation is typical. Whenever any foreign trade mark or brand name appears on the Russian market it has to undergo a certain period ... So you may freely use it in Roman letters. By the way, do you know that as per appropriate RF decrees on imported goods sold in Russia it is allowed to use both names of companies and goods spelled either in Roman letters or transliterated. And finally, my brief search on the Unternet has proved the use of spelling with Roman letters. This must be convincing.
