Cox Powertrain in the UK has chosen Diesel Power AB to serve as Swedish distributor for its high-powered, low-weight diesel outboard engines, the first of which, the CXO300, will be launched later this year.

As a well-established distributor for some of the world’s leading marine engine brands, Diesel Power has a longstanding track record of introducing new marine engines to the Swedish market, backed by a high level of service and support. The company is based in Kungsbacka, just south of Gothenburg.

“For many years, we have observed how the marine market has shifted from the use of inboard to outboard,” says Diesel Power CEO Peter Nauwerck. “However, for some applications the traditional gasoline engines have not been an option and customers, particularly professional users such as the navy, sea rescue and Swedish customs are now eagerly awaiting the arrival of a high-powered diesel outboard.

“We know that other companies are developing diesel outboard engines, but we will be the first company in Sweden to launch one that has been built specifically for professional marine use, from the ground up,” he adds. “The Swedish market is ready for this.”

Diesel Power is currently showing a full-size model of the CXO300 at the Stockholm International Boat Show (Allt för sjön), which runs until Sunday 11 March.
