Incorporating Clean Shipping International

Cox Powertrain, the British innovator behind the world’s first 300hp diesel outboard has won the ADI (Industrial Design Association) award for its CXO300 engine.

The Industrial Design Award is promoted by the Italian Nautical Industry Association (UCINA) and the Italian Design Association (ADI).

The award is a great accomplishment for Cox Powertrain which will be launching the CXO300 in November at this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The characteristics taken into consideration by jury panel for the award are the design, the quality of the material used, and the innovation. The CXO300 engine was considered by the jury as the only engine deserving of the award chiefly because of its innovative design and sustainable technology.

“We are really proud of this award,” Corrado Gaia, Head of Cartello, Cox Powertrain’s Italian and Monaco distributor, commented. “The award is proof that we work alongside highly innovative companies and deliver superior quality products to the Italian and European market.”

The final concept of 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 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. The engine will be sold by more than 40 global distributors and 400 dealers covering 60 countries worldwide.
