Online registration to demo Cox Powertrain's diesel outboard now open

by Saltwater Stone 17 Nov 2018 00:44 PST 13-15 November 2018

Following the global launch of Cox Powertrain's professional diesel outboard engine at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, the company has announced that online registration for its on-water demonstration programme is now open.

Anyone interested in buying or switching to a high-powered diesel outboard is being urged to register their interest to take part in a demonstration at

Over the coming six months, Cox Powertrain will be partnering with its global distributors and boatbuilding partners to run a full programme of demonstrations, beginning with trade demonstrations this month. Public demonstrations will commence in January 2019.

"With our order book now open, demonstrating the engine to potential customers is now our priority. We are keen to substantiate just how much of a game-changer the engine will be," said Joel Reid, Cox Powertrain's Global Sales Director. "We are delighted to be working alongside our distributors and two of North America's most respected boatbuilder's, Metal Shark and Intrepid Powerboats to deliver our US demos and with Ribco for our demonstrations in the EMEA region."

"In our twenty-five years of building boats, Ribco Marine is always searching for innovative products in the marine market," said Ribco's Marketing Manager, Dimitris Chatzitolios. "Over the years we have seen a lot of interesting products, but we believe that the new CXO300 is one of the most innovative that we've seen. It is very difficult to produce a 300hp marine diesel engine that is as compact and lightweight as the CXO300, but Cox has managed it and we believe its introduction will mark a turning point in this sector. We are very proud that Cox Powertrain has chosen our Seafarer 36 Rib for the European demonstrations of the CXO300."

At 300hp, CXO300 is the world's highest-powered diesel outboard. The final engine concept is based on the proven technology of a 4-stroke, V8 architecture. Weighing 375kg, it offers at least a 25% better range compared to a gasoline outboard and is designed to last up to three times longer. Users could save as much as three times the £35,000 retail cost of the CXO300 over the lifespan of the outboard due to its long life, fuel efficiency, long service intervals and reduced haul-out costs.

With petrol now not permitted on an increasing number of vessels, the introduction of a viable diesel outboard that allows owners and operators to carry single fuel on board makes it a game-changer for the superyacht and recreational boating industries.
