Shoreham, UK – 18 January 2023 – Adding to its array of environmental credentials, leading diesel outboard manufacturer Cox Marine® will be showcasing its HVO (hydrogenated vegetable oil) fuel ‘drop-in replacement’ for conventional diesel, at Europe’s leading recreational boat show.

Furthering Cox Marine’s pursuit of sustainability, members of its European Regional Team, led by Sales Director Harry Heasman, will be on hand throughout the show to explain how its CXO300, a 4.4 litre V8 diesel outboard, can automatically reset and calibrate itself for optimised HVO fuel operation, offering vessel owners and operator, an environmentally appealing reduction of up to 90% lower CO2 emissions, when compared with equivalent gasoline outboards.

Cox Marine’s official support of HVO fuels in its product not only offers environmentally conscious boat owners the flexibility to enjoy their vessels, in the knowledge they are contributing to protecting marine ecosystems, but that they can make the switch to HVO fuel quickly and easily, as owners aren’t required to flush either tank or lines require prior to switching between propellants.

“Approving HVO fuels for use in the CXO300 and for our customer’s, is the next logical step, aligning with our core principle – to reduce our impact on the environment, through the innovation and application of technology. Attending Boot provides Cox with a fantastic opportunity to engage with prospective leisure and recreational customers, and allows us to champion HVO as today’s readily available environmental solution, while we simultaneously explore tomorrow’s alternatives.” Harry Heasman, Regional Director for EMEA.

As a paraffinic bio-based liquid fuel, HVO originates from many kinds of vegetable oils, such as rapeseed, sunflower, soybean, and palm oil, as well as animal fats. It has a higher flash point than traditional diesel, as well as a lower environmental footprint.

With a strong pedigree in satisfying some of the world’s most stringent emissions standards, Cox’s CXO300 diesel outboard, already offers up to 35% less CO2 emissions compared to equivalent gasoline outboards. The clean burning nature of the engine has enabled the CXO300 to successfully achieve EPA Tier 3, RCD II, IMO II.

More recently, the twin installation of Cox Marine’s 4.4. litre 300hp outboard, has become recognised as the most powerful outboard configuration solution for boat operators located on the picturesque Lake Constance, thanks to the engine’s compliance with the rigorous BSO-II Bodensee emissions standard certification.

Cox Marine will be located in Hall 10, Stand C60, where members of its team and distributors will be on hand to answer questions about their product offering and future approach to reducing marine emissions.
