Cox Powertrain has announced that public demonstrations of the CXO300 are being held at this year’s Miami Boat Show, supported by their distributor Diesel Outboard Solutions. Demonstrations are being hosted over the 5-day show on a re-powered 23′ Regulator single installation, on berth 161F.
“We are excited to showcase our demo boat at the Miami Boat show this week.” said Chuck Gould, President of Sales for Diesel Outboard Solutions. “Customers have been truly amazed to see and hear the power and performance of the demo engine and are blown away when they realize that the production engines will be even better.”
The demos of Cox’s diesel outboard at the Progressive Miami International Boat Show coincides with news from the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) reporting a 13-year rise in outboard sales due to US consumer demand for newer, technologically advanced, higher horsepower engine. To support this rise in outboard sales, Cox has worked tirelessly to build a strong aftersales support network, with Ring Power supporting Florida, one of Cox’s biggest markets. Cox recently hired a US-based sales and customer support team to work in collaboration with the network of local dealers in December, to strengthen the American team and provide the highest standard of support for its customers.
Cox Powertrain’s North American Account Manager, Bruce Woodfin spoke about the support at the show: “Cox Powertrain’s state of the art assembly line is geared up and ready to go into production, which will commence upon approval of the remaining regulatory certifications. We’re eager to answer questions and update customers with the exciting plans that we have in store for 2020 and beyond. The demonstrations during the show will expose the true performance and efficiency of the CXO300.”
There have been major investments to the state-of-the-art production line for the CXO300 which guarantee flawless quality of each engine. Camera systems will verify the continuity and exact size of each bead of sealant laid down by the bespoke plotter to ensure the perfect seal as well as WIFI enabled DC tooling that will communicate directly with the MES system to record all assembly torque data; an automated ‘Spin rig’ to test every gearbox and a comprehensive end of line ‘Hot test’ facility to ensure each powerhead achieves the high standards that customers expect.
