As the marine industry waits for Cox diesel outboards to be made available for testing, Sweden-based OXE has been powering boats for commercial with its own diesel outboards for the last two years.

The inline 4-cylinder powerhead displaces 2 liters and has an intercooled turbocharger. It’s available in 125-, 150, 175- and 200-hp ratings; shaft lengths of 25 and 30 inches; and gear ratios of 1.73-to-1 and 2.17-to-1.

The highest-rated OXE outboard is a 200-hp model that makes 306 foot pounds of peak torque.

The engine weighs 772 pounds and has a closed-cooling circuit to prevent corrosion. Alternator output is 130 amps. Steering is electronic power assist, and shifting in and out of gear is through a CANbus electro-hydraulic system and hydraulic clutch.

Instead of shafts that run from the powerhead to the lower unit, OXE motors use a primary drive belt that lets the user switch the orientation of the belt to change between the two available gear ratios. A second belt transfers power to the prop shaft.

The engines meet EPA, EU and CARB emissions requirements, and are certified by IMO Tier II, EPA Tier III and RCD.

Laborde Products sells and services OXE outboards in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas, as well as the Mexican states of Campeche, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, Quintana Roo, Tamaulipas, Veracruz and Yucatan.

Laborde displayed OXE outboards at the Miami International Boat Show.
