Mercury Racing released a new Bravo I LT propeller.

The company said the Bravo I LT is designed for higher-horsepower, single-engine outboard-powered bay boats and multispecies hulls under heavy loads.

Mercury said boat manufacturers have responded to angler requests for larger and more stable hulls by increasing hull depth and width.

The changes have resulted in consoles moving forward, changing the center of gravity and weight distribution. The mounting of trolling motor batteries at the front of the boat affects planing performance and bow lift.

Mercury said the handmade stainless-steel Bravo I LT props are designed to improve planing and trim response throughout the engine operating rpm range. The result is an increase in top-end speed of 1 to 1.5 mph, the company said.

Fifteen pitch offerings, ranging from 20 to 27.5 inches, are available in one-half inch increments for 2-stroke and 4-stroke outboards.

The company said the Bravo I LT features the Mercury patented Performance Vent System. PVS enables operators to dial in their propeller for peak planing performance. The PVS system works in concert with the LT’s blades.
