First new full-sized Volvo B9R joins Coatham Coaches 21 December 2012

Family-owned tour operator Coatham Coaches has celebrated its 30th anniversary with the purchase of its first-ever new full-sized Volvo B9R coach.

The Guisborough-based company, which has specified Volvo coaches before, has already set the new vehicle to work on the company's UK daytrip tour services.

The new B9R, which features Sunsundegui bodywork, is powered by a 9.4-litre diesel engine capable of 380bhp, connected to the I-Shift gearbox. And it comes with an onboard reversing camera.

Says Coatham Coaches general manager Mark Hodgson: "The vehicle promises to be fuel efficient and reliable and they're both factors of the utmost importance to us as an operator."
