Miami – February 14, 2019 – Ring Power Corporation, one of Florida’s largest maritime propulsion specialists and one of the region’s chief Caterpillar dealers, was today announced as Cox Powertrain’s exclusive distributor for Florida. The announcement was made at the Progressive Miami International Boat Show where Ring Power has teamed with the British diesel innovator to promote its ground-breaking CXO300 diesel outboard engine.

The USA’s south-eastern seaboard region is a key market for Cox Powertrain and a high proportion of the company’s recreational sales are expected to come from the Florida boating community following a significant growth in the number of twin, triple and quad outboard powered boats sold in the state and a big demand for a viable high-powered diesel outboard.

“We believe the Florida market offers one of the most significant opportunities for Cox Diesel outboards in the Americas, if not globally,” said Ring Power’s President, David Alban. “The State of Florida provides both unique and diverse market segment opportunities for Cox diesel outboards and we are fortunate to have many of the best in class recreational outboard boat builders located here in Florida.

“This is an opportunity for us to represent a brand- new engine product which currently has no equal in the market place. As a customer service organization, it provides Ring Power the opportunity to access a new customer base that we currently do not serve. This also aligns well with our core business of providing best in class products with unequalled product support.”

Visitors to the show are being encouraged to visit Cox Powertrain’s booth to sign up to the company’s US demo program, which will take place in a number of key states, commencing this spring. For those not visiting the show, online demo registration is now open at https://www.coxmarine.com/en/demo/
