The attention shortly went viral after the YouTube, rib, and yacht tender restoration aficionado, Alfred Montaner, took a demo ride with the Laborde Products crew.
Boarding a BRIG 730 with drone and camera in hand, Montaner documented the quiet yet powerful ride of Cimco Marines diesel outboard, OXE Kreta. Montaner captured many highlights on the advantages and features OXE Kreta has to offer; including its crash stop capabilities and low fuel burn.
Cruising over thirty knots, the OXE Kreta was burning about eight gallons (30 liter) per hour! Since Montaner's YouTube publication was uploaded roughly one week ago, the video has received over 223,000 views.
The OXE Diesel Kreta has been specially design with superyacht tenders in mind. The diesel fuel is less hazardous than petrol and the increased torque contributes to increased flexibility for tenders.
