Cox Marine will return to exhibit at the 62nd Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show as production ramps up at its UK production facility following a busy year that has seen the company benefit from further investment and successfully manage supply chain issues. This has placed the business in an even stronger position to fulfill the ever-increasing demand from customers and the wider marine industry who are increasingly switching from gas to higher-performing diesel outboards.

2021 has been another pivotal year for the leading British specialist of high-powered diesel engines for marine applications. Following a further injection of investment in February, the company has been able to forge ahead with its production ramp-up, which will see 100 engines per week coming off the company's Shoreham assembly line. In response to the well-documented supply chain issues that have been felt across the globe, the company swiftly implemented an in-house Power Trim and Tilt Line (PTT Line) to prevent any delays in the production and shipment of its revolutionary CXO300 diesel outboards.

"The message from Cox at this year's Fort Lauderdale show is very clear. Our engines are available, and we are fulfilling delivery on a global basis," says Hugh Hudleston, Cox's Head of Global Sales. "This year we have proved once again that we are strongly placed to overcome the industry-wide challenges that have been at the forefront of businesses throughout the world and continue to deliver on our goal of bringing the world's highest-performing, diesel outboard to market."

"The feedback about the engine's performance has been overwhelmingly positive with most comments focussing on how quiet the engines are, how smooth they operate through the water, and how fast and responsive they are. The overall performance of the engine has exceeded way beyond expectations."

Cox Marine's North America team will be on hand on booth #1211 at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show to answer visitors' questions and talk about forthcoming development plans.
