A full sized model of the CXO300 will be shown for the first time at Monaco

British diesel innovator, Cox Powertrain, will team with exclusive Italian distributor, Cartello Srl to present its game-changing diesel outboard, the CXO300, to the superyacht market at this week’s Monaco Yacht Show.

It is the first time a full size model of the CXO300 will be shown at the event, allowing key superyacht industry decision makers a sneak preview of the advanced engine layout.

Visitors will also get a first look at the recently announced controls and display systems that have been chosen for the high performance engine.

Recently appointed by Cox Powertrain to exclusively manage its sales, service and distribution in Italy and Monaco, Cartello Srl has an exceptional reputation as a distributor of high-performance and high quality marine brands within this market. With a significant n after-sales service network throughout the region, the company is able to offer trusted and reliable support to its superyacht customers in the southern Mediterranean region.

Commenting on the appointment Cartello’s CEO Alessandro Speziari said, “We are delighted to be representing Cox Powertrain in this important Italian and Mediterranean coastal region for superyachts. Throughout our territory, we have access to over one hundred workshops offering highly skilled support offering a fast and dependable service to our customers.

One of our main strengths is our highly regarded internal technical department, which enables us to offer bespoke solutions for boat builders, refitting yards and owners. We see Cox as a powerful partner, which complements our existing offering and enables us to offer our customers a unique, high quality performance product.”

The CXO300 is the highest power density diesel outboard engine ever developed. With petrol now not permitted on an increasing number of superyachts, the introduction of a viable diesel outboard that offers a comparable power and weight of a gasoline engine makes it a game-changer for the superyacht industry.

Following the recent announcement of Cox Powertrain’s collaboration with Xenta Systems and Murphy by Enovation Controls, Cox Powertrain will also show the premium engine control and display systems that have been chosen for the CXO300.

Italian controls specialist, Xenta Systems has been chosen to supply the superior engine controls system, which incorporates the joystick and throttle. As the first company to develop and patent the intuitive joystick control system, Xenta System works closely with retrofit and OEM production markets to offer a fully integrated engine control package, resulting in a highly intuitive control system that provides seamless manoeuvrability of craft in close quarters.

Murphy by Enovation Controls will supply its new PowerView®1200 display screen offering full-featured engine diagnostics on a powerful display screen. As Murphy’s largest engine display system, the new PowerView®1200 was chosen for its power, large memory and excellent connectivity.
