OXE Marine makes waves

Diesel outboards have long gotten a bad rap of being smelly and smoky, but a new generation of diesel technology is aiming to leave that in the sooty past. As yacht owners and the military move to a single-source fuel concept, diesel outboards are having a moment. Today’s diesel outboards have higher horsepower, better range, and are lighter than models offered less than a decade ago. Gasoline four-stroke outboards still rule, but diesel outboard manufacturers hope to grab a slice of the valuable recreational market.

Sharrow Marine – Showdown in Paradise by BoatTEST.com

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."
