World´s leading outboard diesel engines


for demanding enviroments


The core team behind the OXE diesel has been working closely together within Cimco Marine AB since 2012, combining experiences from naval high speed operators and instructors through naval technicians, automotive engineering, supercar development and high volume production. 

The vision has always been clear for all team members:
Create a reliable, enduring, efficient product that runs on diesel, built specifically for commercial users and their demands in mind.
The result is a commercial product in an outboard package, the OXE Diesel. Its designed from the ground up by our team at Cimco Marine AB for the commercial user.

  • Next generation prototypes of OXE Diesel 300
  • Cimco Marine AB (publ.) are developing the new generation Diesel powered outboard, with six cylinders, twin turbo, 3-liter, diesel engine from BMW as a basis. Internally the project is known as the BISON project. The next generation prototypes are currently being built and are scheduled to hit the water in early July. Start of production is scheduled for spring 2020.
  • Nine OXE Diesel 150 to Flugga Boats in Shetland
  • Cimco Marine AB´s (publ.) appointed distributor of OXE Diesel in the UK and Ireland, Proteum, was contracted to sell nine (9) OXE Diesel 150 to Flugga Boats in Shetland at the first day of the commercial marine exhibition Seawork in Southampton.

The OXE Diesel is the only outboard engine built particularly with commercial users in mind. It is designed for those who use their boat every day no matter the conditions, and have to rely on the units for many hours every year. The innovation fills a new segment in the marine industry and cannot be compared to anything on the market today. Efficiency, Endurance, Power and Control.

At the heart of the Oxe diesel outboard is a marinized 4-cylinder GM turbodiesel automotive powerplant. As with any marine diesel engine, it provides the advantage of a safe, inexpensive fuel source, with the added advantage of allowing single-fuel requirements for companies running a diesel-powered fleet. High torque provides performance that’s equivalent to a slightly higher-horsepower gas-powered outboard.

Because the engine is fresh-water cooled with a built-in heat exchanger, the Oxe outboard allows easy addition of a bus heater connection at the bypass circuit. And because the transmission is an electro-hydraulic multi-plate clutch design, it not only provides smooth shifting and crash-stop protection, but also provides a built-in low speed trolling mode that eliminates the need for (and costs associated with) a separate trolling motor.
