Sun Power Diesel, based in Dania Beach, Florida, is now a U.S. distributor of the CXO300 diesel outboard engine — a high-power, low-weight, single-fuel engine developed by British diesel engine innovator Cox Powertrain.
“About once every 10 years, a truly game-changing product is introduced into the marine propulsion marketplace,” Sun Power Diesel CEO Jay Davis said in a company statement. “New boats today are, for the majority, either powered by gas outboards or diesel inboards, many with pod drives. Cox’s 300hp diesel outboard offers truly the best of both worlds. You have the durability, safety and fuel efficiency of today’s common rail marine diesel engine combined with the practicality, space savings and ease of maintenance of an outboard motor.”
Dean Gualillo, who has joined Sun Power Diesel as business development and sales manager heading the Cox engine program, has a 35-year background in the marine propulsion business, with expertise in the marine engine and running gear segments of the industry, according to the company. Gualillo will be primarily responsible for all OEM and dealer network development in Florida.
