With successful commercial demonstrations of the CXO300 having taken place over recent months, Cox Powertrain will be hosting its first demonstrations for the superyacht sector at the Monaco Yacht Show next week. The demonstrations will take place on a twin RIBCO Seafarer 36 installation everyday throughout the show.
Superyacht owners, captains and crew are encouraged to test the CXO300 and visit Cox’s stand in the Tenders and Toys Zone to find out how the 300hp diesel outboard engine can benefit their operations. Of particular interest will be the convenience of using a single fuel for both mothership and tender, plus the additional safety benefits that diesel brings.
As the first heavy-duty non-gasoline outboard, the CXO300 also offers reduced maintenance and haul-out costs. The CXO300 also provides at least a 25 per cent better range compared to a gasoline outboard and 100 per cent higher peak torque at the crankshaft than the leading gasoline 300hp outboards, which enables craft to move more weight more efficiently and reach peak torque and top power more quickly.
Cox Powertrain has also just revealed that the diesel outboard will be complemented by the creation of a robust, contemporary-styled carbon fibre cowling. Created by high-precision specialist CPC Group, the durable, lightweight protective housing is available in black or white. The casing has been designed to be as strong and light as possible while concentrating on the design aesthetics with features including angular lines, stylish vents and accents of colour.
Carbon fibre is renowned for delivering impressive stiffness, strength, chemical and heat resistance, and is ideal for use in the harsh marine environment. For Cox’s engineering team, carbon fibre was the natural choice to protect the advanced technology of the first 300hp diesel outboard and the mechanical machining specialists at CPC the ideal team to create the cutting-edge cowling.
The new style will also be available to view at the Monaco Yacht Show at Cox Powertrain's demonstration berth QA30 and stand QA7.
