A Trio of 300-hp OXE diesel outboards is driving one red snapper fisherman’s profitability. It’s June on the coast of Louisiana, the temperature never drops below 80 and rises fast with the sun, but it’s not too bad in the shade of the shelter roof on James Bruce’s 41-foot aluminum hull, grouper, and snapper boat. “The roof is blue for a reason,” Bruce says, pointing up. “So, when the heat reflects off this white deck, it doesn’t reflect back down on you.”
The vessel is powered by two OXE 223kW diesel outboard engines, though the design may also be configured to accommodate electric outboards to allow hybrid operations. Chartwell Marine said that the hybrid outboard configuration allows the operator to select the most effective and efficient propulsion system depending on the vessel’s operational load case and task. This results in a reduction in fuel burn, allowing CO2 emissions to remain within a standard operational profile. When compared to existing 12-metre catamarans fitted with diesel inboard engines and waterjet propulsion, the vessel fuel burn can be reduced by as much as 38 per cent.
Caudwell Marine has announced that their new diesel 300hp outboard will be delivered in early 2024. The Caudwell Marine team is confident that its first outboard product will exceed the demanding expectations of the market, which has been waiting for a reliable and durable diesel outboard solution for many years. The outboard features a marine proven, 300 hp, V6 turbo charged high performance diesel engine. Caudwell Marine is keen to stress that launch to market will only come once the final round of validation and durability testing is complete.
