Lehr 9.9

LEHR Inc has introduced the next generation in green innovation with the new 9.9 HP propane outboard boat engines.   LEHR has been garnering significant attention with its compelling eco-friendly engines, and was recently awarded Sail Magazine’s Pittman Innovation Award  for 2013, POPULAR MECHANICS Breakthrough Award for 2012 and named a TECH AWARDS LAUREATE by the Tech Museum.  LEHR was selected among hundreds of nominations worldwide and was recognized for its innovation to benefit humanity and spark global change.
The LEHR 2.5 and 5.0 HP propane boat engines were the world’s first OEM products and due to popular demand, Lehr has now introduced the new 9.9 HP propane boat engine.  Once LEHR’s CEO, Captain Bernardo Herzer, saw the positive impact his first propane-powered products had on the environment, he was inspired to continue to use his technology to create products with both high power and cleaner emissions.  On a recent trip to Catalina, Bernardo witnessed an overturned boat, causing gallons of gasoline to enter the water but with LEHR’s environmentally friendly technology gasoline spills will no longer be an issue.
The benefits of propane over gasoline include 50% lower fuel cost, no gasoline polluting the water, no ethanol or fuel-related issues, zero evaporative emissions, no priming, no carburetor gum-up, and no winterizing.  “Gasoline is dangerous to use, difficult to store and the carbon monoxide fumes it produces can have a devastating effect on the well being of the ship’s crew,” says Herzer.

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists.

This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
