1989 - Marine Achievement
The Lynch Motor broke the World Waterspeed Record with an Electric Hydroplane driven by the Countess of Arran.
The Lynch Motor was (and still is) light, powerful and efficient. With power efficiencies of 90% the Lynch Motor was able to repeatedly win power endurance records for electric powered cars and bikes until eventually the event coordinators banned us from their events.
The Record Breaking Electric Hydroplane

Entering the marine world, Lynch Motors fitted four tiny electric motors to an electric hydroplane which was driven by Fiona, the Countess of Arran and together they set a new world electric boat record of 51mph.
