Seawork, Europe’s leading commercial workboat exhibition marks the beginning of Cox Powertrain’s EMEA demonstration programme of its highly anticipated diesel outboard, the CXO300.

The demonstrations will take place on Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th June and will offer an exclusive opportunity to experience the performance of one of the world’s most talked about marine engine developments. There is a big demand for a high-power diesel outboard and many commercial users recognise the huge benefits that such an engine will deliver.

As a heavy-duty diesel-powered outboard engine, the CXO300 brings a long-awaited single fuel alternative to the global commercial workboat market. It offer the benefits of using diesel, such as fuel efficiency and safety, with the cost reducing benefits of operating an outboard.  Reduced maintenance and haul out costs will also be an important factor as they lessen the disruption to the vessel’s operation. The CXO300 offers at least a 25% better range compared to a gasoline outboard and it has a 100% higher peak torque at the crankshaft than the leading gasoline 300hp outboards, which enables the craft to move more weight more efficiently, reach peak torque and top power more quickly.

Cox Powertrain will be joined by their UK distributor, Berthon, on their main stand in the exhibition area where the team will be on hand to answer questions and talk about the many benefits of the performance diesel outboard. With ownership costs a top priority for commercial operators, Cox’s Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) calculator will be available on the stand for visitors to calculate their personalised cost of owning a CXO300.

Seawork is shaping up to be a stage for a diesel outboard showdown, as there will also be demonstrations available of COX’s competitor, the OXE diesel outboard, although the OXE is currently limited to 200hp.
