The CXO300 diesel outboard has been designed and developed in collaboration with Ricardo, one of the world’s leading engine developers, the best of British innovation is expected to revolutionise marine propulsion throughout the commercial, governmental and leisure sectors. Cox’s vision to develop lightweight diesel engines using F1 technology has become CXO300.
During our 10 year relationship with Cox, their experienced team of engineers have worked closely alongside Ricardo to deliver the industry’s first robust and reliable 300hp diesel outboard engine. As the most powerful diesel outboard brought to the market, the CXO300 has been developed to be compatible with existing industry standards ensuring easy installation across a wide range of vessels.
Crucially for commercial operators, it offers 480 ft.lb of torque, at least a 25% better range compared to petrol outboards, improved fuel economy and longer service intervals will reduce maintenance, downtime and haul-out costs. The engine is cast from aluminium alloy, rather than steel, to reduce weight, creating a light-weight and robust propulsion option. The CXO300 features a narrow-angle 60 degree V to reduce its overall dimensions. Designed to last 3x longer than a gasoline equivalent, this diesel outboard combines exceptional performance, with the reassurance of proven V8 diesel technology.
EPA 3, IMO 3 and RCD 2 emissions compliant it’s not only the most powerful diesel outboard engine in production, it’s also the most sophisticated.
Shaft lengths are available in 20” 25” and 30” and a choice of 2 gearbox ratios 1.23/1 and 1.46/1 have been deliberately over-engineered to cope with the torque and increase the engine’s durability, resulting in up to three times the life expectancy of a petrol engine and at least 25% more fuel-efficient.
