Images of the CXO300’s final styling have now been released ahead of its imminent production launch this year. The engine itself has been in development for over a decade and now features a casing which has been designed to be as strong and light as possible while also looking dynamic with angular lines, vents and accents of colour.

Carbonfibre is renowned for delivering stiffness, strength, chemical and heat resistance, making it popular with the military and motorsports industry, and ideal for use in the harsh marine environment.

Global sales director Joel Reid commented: “While exceptional performance, fuel efficiency and cost of ownership savings are undoubtedly the headline features of the CXO300, we felt it was important its cowling should not only be as rugged, durable and lightweight as possible but should also look great. Current trends are seeing more creative styling for high-end outboards like the CXO300 and many customers want engines that look as good as their boat. That’s why, in addition to our standard black and white options, custom colours and stylish decals will be available in the future.”
