British diesel outboard manufacturer Cox Powertrain, in conjunction with Berthon Power (the UK & Ireland distributor), chose Seawork 2019 as the platform for the first public demonstrations of its long-awaited 300hp diesel outboard, the CXO300.
More than 120 people from the commercial workboat sector, including distributors, boat builders and end users took to the water to experience first-hand the outstanding performance of one of the most talked about marine engine developments in recent years – and it didn’t disappoint.
The demonstrations took place throughout the three-day event.
Simon Barnett, Berthon Power’s Sales Manager, said, “We were absolutely delighted with how the trials went and with the extremely positive feedback that we received from our customers. Orders are now being taken in advance of production which is expected to begin in October.”
Adding to the success of the week was news that Cox Powertrain had won “Innovative Showcase” at the 2019 European Commercial Marine Awards; this award celebrates the outstanding individuals and innovative companies that comprise this vibrant and productive industry sector.
