OXE Diesel



OXE is the world’s first high performance diesel outboard setting new standards for durability, fuel-efficiency and low emissions for an outboard engine.

Cimco Marine, the Swedish manufacturer behind the outboard engine, started this project with the mission to design the first generation of high performance diesel outboards.

The name OXE is the Swedish name for an OX. A name that reflects the fundamental concepts from which this marine product has been developed – reliability, strength, and endurance – all significant attributes of an OX.

The OXE diesel is designed to withstand the punishing conditions experienced in marine environments. Stress tests on hulls from the Swedish coast guard have shown that engines in their high speed boats are regularly exposed to forces of up to 7g. In order to endure these kinds of forces, the products must be robust and have strength – just like an OX.

The concept eliminates bevel gears and transfer shafts by utilizing innovative belt technology which allows for high torque transfer. The slim submerged modules provide less drag, reduces fuel consumption and increase speed.

The OXE Diesel outboard complies with the NATO ”single-fuel” directive, that NATO forces must fulfil by 2015. The diesel engine is therefore, an ideal solution for naval, military, rescue and commercial applications where safety, durability, performance and ease of service is important.
