The British diesel engineering company has reached a significant milestone as it ships its first production CXO300s.
This, the Shoreham-based company says, is a defining moment, which many of the team have been working towards over the past 13 years.
Cox’s distributors have been eagerly awaiting the delivery of their first CXO300 outboard engines. Distributor, Sime Darby, Singapore, will take delivery of the first production outboards, with deliveries to Gulf Yachts, Qatar, and Diesel Power, Sweden following shortly after.
“The release of the CXO300 has been highly anticipated,” says Alan Ow, Tractors Machinery International’s MD (a subsidiary of Sime Darby Industrial). “There is a big demand among commercial boat owners in our region to install diesel outboard motors on their boats due to the increased safety factors, higher performance and a longer equipment life span.”
Cox distributor, Diesel Power, is planning a roadshow tour in Sweden and Germany to introduce the CXO300 to these markets, providing insight into what the diesel outboard has to offer.
The assembly facility at Cox Powertrain’s headquarters is designed to produce up to one engine per hour at full capacity. Cox has applied industry best practice at all stages of the design, manufacture, and test process to ensure global success of the engine, and the brand and is confident the CXO300 will be well received by the market.
