OXE Diesel

The OXE Diesel Outboard has been designed for commercial customers, including:

  • Workboat operators
  • Fishing
  • Aquaculture
  • Oil and gas
  • Search and rescue
  • Coastguard


Enhanced Performance

The common rail turbo charged diesel engine provides high efficiency and torque. This results in powerful thrust and acceleration, with the capacity to carry heavy loads. The engine runs on a large variety of fuels: EN 590, ASTM D 975 No. 1 and No. 2, and JIS KK 2204. The Quick Shift Capability protects the engine from damage caused by evasive manoeuvres and allows for superior acceleration.

Fuel Economy

The OXE Diesel consumes up to 39% less fuel than a comparable modern 150hp 2-stroke outboard. The engine housing is optimized for low drag.  This reduces the fuel consumption further. Reduced fuel consumption means longer intervals between refueling.

NATO ”single-fuel” directive

The OXE Diesel fulfils the NATO ”single-fuel” directive making it an ideal solution for naval and military applications.  It is a direct replacement for traditional outboards in the 150 to 400 HP range.

Lower Life Cycle Costs

The OXE Diesel is designed to keep life cycle costs to a minimum.  The combined benefits of the modern diesel engine with the efficient transmission provide longer service intervals.  This in turn means lower maintenance costs and longer operation times.
