Seawork innovation award handed to Cox Powertrain

by | Jun 12, 2019

Cox Powertrain, the British company that’s behind the world’s first 300hp diesel outboard, has picked up an award at the annual Seawork International Innovation Awards.

The company won the Marine Power and Propulsion category for its innovative, game-changing engine, the CXO300.

The awards celebrate the outstanding individuals and innovations that make up the marine sector. Every product that was nominated had been launched or completed within the last 12 months, and demonstrated new approaches, as opposed to merely enhancing existing products.

Cox Powertrain’s pioneering CXO300 engine was chosen for its fascinating design as well as the ‘from-scratch’ approach.

Not only have we worked hard to create an innovative product, we have also redefined standards in service, and we are extremely proud to be recognised for this. 

– Faye Dooley, Marketing Communications Manager at Cox Powertrain

The judges recognised the way in which Cox’s designers opted to pursue innovation in every aspect, as opposed to deciding to modify pre-existing components.

Faye Dooley, Marketing Communications Manager at Cox Powertrain, said: “We are very proud to be handed this award. Not only have we worked hard to create an innovative product, we have also redefined standards in service, and we are extremely proud to be recognised for this.”

The CXO300 concept is based on the proven technology of a 4-stroke, V8 architecture. However, when compared to a gasoline outboard, it offers at least a 25% better range, and is designed to last up to three times longer as previously mentioned.

The CXO300 also has a package volume that is around 50% that of a state-of-the-art diesel inboard with comparable fuel efficiency. Furthermore, it also has a 100% higher peak torque at the crankshaft than the leading gasoline 300hp outboards and is 60% higher compared to a leading 350hp.
