Laborde Products, Southeast US distributor for OXE Diesel outboards, proudly announces the release of the OXE Diesel 300 HP outboard engine to be in production in May of 2020 and is accepting pre-orders immediately. After rigorous prototype testing the OXE300 is designed to meet requests of consumers that demand high speed and high torque typically only met by inboard marine engines. The unit utilizes a 3.0-liter BMW bi-turbo block and a specifically designed gearbox developed to withstand over 500ft/lbs of torque at 1750 RPM’s. Torque in this range greatly surpasses the torque performance of a typical gas outboard with the same horsepower rating. Originally intended for use in Governmental/military, Transportation and Search and Rescue operations, the engine meets NATO’s single-fuel directive providing less fuel volatility and asserting better range through 40% better fuel efficiency. Additionally, a horizontally positioned power plant makes engine service less tedious. The yacht tender segment of the market has also expressed interest due to the convenience of not having to carry two fuels onboard. OXE is the only diesel outboard manufacturer that offers engines in the 125, 150, 175, 200 and 300 horsepower range to round out their product offering. 

Laborde Products provides innovative and disruptive engine solutions for approximately one-third of the United States, as well as the U.S. Gulf Coast for the Marine and Industrial markets. The engine distributor specializes in custom packaged diesel-powered equipment, generators, pumps, service, and support to meet the needs of those markets.
