Monaco Yacht Show, 25th – 28th September 2019, Stand QA7

Monaco, 25 September 2019 - Cox Powertrain is carrying out the first ever superyacht customer demonstrations of its highly anticipated 300hp diesel outboard at Monaco Yacht Show. The demonstrations will take place on a twin RIBCO Seafarer 36 installation, every day throughout the show.

There is a high demand from the superyacht industry for a reliable, robust and fast diesel outboard with effortless handling. The convenience of using a single fuel for both mother ship and tender as well as the additional safety benefits that diesel fuel brings is of particular interest to superyacht owners, captains and management companies.

With Cox’s global distributor, dealer and service network finalised, the company is now focusing on delivering a first-class after sales service to its customers.

The CXO300 is based on the proven technology of a 4-stroke, V8 architecture. It offers at least a 25% better range compared to a gasoline outboard and is designed to last up to three times longer. It has a package volume, around half that of a state-of-the-art diesel inboard with comparable fuel efficiency.

It has a 100% higher peak torque at the crankshaft than the leading gasoline 300hp outboards and is 60% higher compared to a leading 350hp. This enables the craft to reach peak torque and top power more quickly.
