Lancing, UK – 16 May 2018 – British diesel outboard innovator, Cox Powertrain, today announces Fenwick as their French distributor for its game-changing 300hp diesel outboard engine.

Visitors to Navexpo’s third floating trade show in Port of Lorient, France will be able to see a prototype of the highly anticipated CXO300 at Fenwick stand A04 from 15-17 May. The Fenwick team will be on-hand to talk about the industry changing engine, which will be launched later in 2018.

Fenwick is the latest distributor to join an exclusive global alliance of Cox distributors that have been chosen for their reputable standing in maritime engine solutions for both professional and recreational users.

Deputy General Manager for Fenwick, Jean-Baptiste Vène said, “Fenwick, a family-owned company since 1862, is proud to become the exclusive distributor of Cox diesel outboard engines in France. Throughout our extensive presence of more than seventy years in the French market, Fenwick is a long-lasting partner of various well-known marine engine brands. As the market evolves and new trends emerge, we strongly believe that Cox will bring innovative solutions to the market, allowing our French customers to enjoy new ways to navigate.“

Commenting about the impact the CXO300 will have on the French market Vène said, “ We think diesel outboards have been long required by the market and especially by the superyacht tender builders or more generally professional users such as fishermen or transport companies. Demanding customers expect high quality products and high level of service and it is exactly what Fenwick, as a partner of Cox, intends to provide to the French market. Relying on our deep knowledge of the market, we are confident that the introduction of Cox diesel outboards will be a great success.“

The CXO300 is the world’s highest power density diesel outboard. Currently undergoing trials with the US Coast Guard and US Navy, the final concept CXO300 is based on a 4-stroke, V8 architecture. It has been developed for commercial and government applications, where performance, durability and fuel efficiency are paramount. A viable high-powered diesel outboard engine such as the CXO300 will be of specific interest to Navies, Coast Guards and other governmental organisations around the world for use on their fast response vessels.
