The CXO300 diesel outboard is now installed and running on the first boat located in North America.

Shoreham, UK – The introduction of diesel outboards to the US market has been eagerly anticipated for some time now, so it’s particularly rewarding to report that the Cox Powertrain CXO300 diesel outboard is now installed and running on the first boat located in North America. After receiving its first order of production engines, Ring Power has now successfully installed twin CXO300 production engines on an IntrepidNomad 345 boat.

North America is predicted to be Cox Powertrain’s largest and most lucrative market, due to US consumer demand for newer, technologically advanced, higher horsepower engines. Cox has developed an excellent US-based sales and customer support team to work in collaboration with the network of local dealers and provide the highest standard of support for its customers.

“The Production CXO300 engines are everything we expected and more. We are extremely excited to have the Ring Power Cox Marine Intrepid demo boat outfitted with the new engines”, said Royal Hendrix, Sales and Marketing Specialist for Ring Power. “We cannot believe how refined they are. The production engines are smoother, quieter, faster and more responsive than the predecessor. Along with the performance enhancements, the new styling of the cowlings look great. The production engines meet all our expectations and we continue to be amazed after every trip on the water. “

Also commenting on the new installation, Rick Chapman, Ring Power’s Business Manager said: “The Cox Powertrain CXO300 is a truly amazing machine inside and out. Seeing is believing with these engines and it does not take long to become a believer. The CXO300 is a true head turner when we are out on the water.”

Ring Power have plans to host a state-wide demonstration roadshow of the CXO300 later this year, details of which will be announced in due course.

Around $30k for a 300? Guys at Boatmasters told me a Mercury 400 is $36k. Good luck finding diesel fuel on the water. It was once explained to me that outboard motors are basically racing engines that are balanced and blueprinted, hence the high price.

I had one quoted and they’re actually closer to $65k...way too much $$. Give me 2 new Mercury 300’s.

Might be something there for a commercial user that run’s 1000 hours/year but this isn’t for the regular boater. Also wouldn’t want to be one of the first customers to see if these things really LAST. They’ve been promising the product for several years, only time will tell if they’re reliable.
