The world’s toughest inflatable boat challenge, the Six Gun Grill Trans Agulhas, is back this December for its 34th annual event offering fast paced, action packed water sport. This year Southern Power and OXE Diesel is proud to join in on the action as the proud sponsors of the event’s official support vessel.

Offering unprecedented efficiency, reliability and range, the 7.8m Ballistic Rib will be powered by the 300HP OXE Diesel outboard, providing the required endurance, power and control needed by the OXE Diesel safety crew to assist the 30 plus teams who will be going head to head on this gruelling 4 day race.



Southern Power and OXE Diesel is proud to be part of such a world-class sporting event that showcases the best of the best from the inflatable boating community,” says Southern Power CEO, Jacques Brummer. “It is also a  wonderful opportunity for Southern Power to give back into the marine community and at the same time compile some wonderful test data from the OXE engines while on this epic adventure and educate the market on the benefits of a commercial diesel outboard.”

The event will kick-off on 28 December in Plettenberg Bay and will, the delight of thousands of spectators, visit beaches along the coast between Natures Valley and Gordons Bay where the race will finish.
