Our Story

Cox Powertrain was founded in 2007 by Formula 1 motor racing designer David Cox to turn his concept of the Opposed Piston engine into reality

Based on the south coast of England, our pioneering engineers are among the finest in the country. All share a burning desire to deliver innovation with the potential to transform the marine market just as the first outboard engines did over a century ago.

As a privately owned British company, our shareholder base consists mainly of HNWIs.
