Southampton Port’s New Patrol RIB sports Cox CXO300 Drives

Designed to be both fast and agile, the patrol craft Swift has already entered service in Southampton, one of the UK’s busiest ports. Built by Berthon, Cox’s UK distributor based in Lymington, the 7.8m Commercial Grade RIB will be used by the ABP Southampton team to enforce harbor by-laws and to carry out other harbour duties by its safety security patrols. The CXO300 diesel outboard enables the RIB to achieve speeds of nearly 40 knots, while the boat gives them much improved fast response and shallow water capability.

On the road again — Part 4

Last month, three members of Diversified Communications’ inner sanctum visited New Orleans from our headquarters in Portland, Maine. (DC owns WorkBoat and the International WorkBoat Show.) These three are among the best and brightest in our Commercial Marine division — Bob Callahan, group vice president; Lauren St. Clair, group marketing director; and Doug Stewart, art director. We’ve logged some miles together in the past and had some good times doing it. This time, they were here for the Offshore Marine Service Association’s annual spring golf tournament, but came a day early to visit Shamrock Marine LLC, a launch service that operates out of Baton Rouge, La.

“It’s totally different from my previous experiences. The thrust and torque, and the amounts of fuel I save because of its low fuel consumption are some of the benefits I’ve already noticed. The driving experience is incredible, which is hard to believe because the OXE Diesel is a little heavier. But it’s compensated by the power of it. Another benefit is that I can gather heat from the engine to heat my cabin, which is very nice.”
