Cox Marine partners with Ring Power at FLIBS
Diesel outboard motor manufacturer Cox Marine will demonstrate an Intrepid 345 Nomad, powered by twin Cox CXO300 engines, at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (26-30 October 2022).
The Intrepid is owned by Cox Marine’s Florida-based distributor, Ring Power.
The Cox team, including CEO Gavin Wesson and chief engineer Heinz Stalhammar, will be at the Cox Marine stand (number 1211) to discuss the firm’s long-term business strategy, CXO300’s technical product performance, and field enquiries about sales and distribution.
“The CXO300 is set to improve the marine industry with convenient and responsible technology, offering reduced emissions, better fuel economy, increased safety and high performance,” says recently appointed regional director Doug Ross. “With rising costs of fuel, the recreational market will benefit from the total cost of ownership and reliability. Many parts of North America have a short boating season, so boat owners do not want to spend time on maintenance and repairs. Gasoline is also becoming increasingly difficult to come by dockside.”
Cox Marine says the CXO300 produces 20-35 per cent less CO2 emissions than comparable gasoline outboards. It is also said to deliver 479lb.ft torque at 2250-3000rpm and up to 30 per cent better fuel efficiency compared to a 300hp gasoline outboard, with a service life that is three times the average outboard.
In twin-engine 600hp configuration, Ross says the Ring Power craft Intrepid 34 is an ideal showcase package for the CXO300. “This capable centre console design with over 900lb.ft of torque on tap would be a perfect package for the South Florida boating environment where cruising distances can be large and range is king,” he explains.
The stepped hull delivers a top speed of over 50 knots under twin diesel power.
Supported by a network of over 30 distributors covering more than 100 territories, the CXO300 outboard engine is available to order across the globe. Earlier this year, Cox announced an expansion for UAE and Bahrain, and entered new markets in Poland and Finland.
