British diesel engine innovator Cox Powertrain will release more information about the patented and unique technology that has been used in its new concept diesel outboard, the CXO300 at Seawork International in June, ahead of its 2018 launch.

Visitors will have the opportunity to discuss the interior configuration of the engine and understand more about the technology that makes the CXO300 the world’s highest power density diesel outboard.

The original concept of the CXO300 is based on a supercharged, two-stroke diesel opposed piston architecture with Scotch Yoke crankshaft and a central injector position. It has been designed to operate in the toughest of environments and will offer professional marine users gasoline outboard performance, with diesel economy and reliability. It is specifically targeted at commercial, government and military applications, where performance, durability and fuel efficiency are paramount.

Now in its preproduction gamma phase after an intense development program, the CXO300 is set for a 2018 launch following a series of trials.

With the U.S. and European distributor networks now in place, Cox Powertrain is now focusing on its sales network further afield with distributors in Australia and New Zealand already confirmed. More information about the company’s distributor network will be announced over the coming months.

Cox Powertrain will host its first distributor conference in Washington, North America in June followed by its European distributor conference in July which will take place at Cox Powertrain's headquarters in Shoreham, U.K.
