Chief Executive Officer of Cyclone Power Technologies
Harry Schoell, Chairman and CTO, is a life long entrepreneur and technology visionary. Harry is a native Floridian, born in Miami, and a third generation inventor and engineer. Harry has worked for years to realize his dream to create an environmentally-friendly engine, and has two patents issued and 11 patents pending on the Schoell Cycle Heat Regenerative External Combustion Engine, now called the Cyclone Engine, as well as many other patents pending on the engine’s components in the U.S. and internationally. Harry is well versed in all facets of manufacturing procedure, including, appropriate foundry protocol, castings, machining, production design & manufacturing, and plastic and fiberglass laminates. In the 1960’s, he participated in thermal dynamic testing on Rankine Cycle Engines which ultimately led to the creation of the Cyclone Engine. Harry also has extensive experience in designing, inventing and building unique boat hull designs and patented marine propulsion systems, through Schoell Marine, a company he founded in 1966 and still operates today, which provides design innovation to the marine and other industries. Since founding Schoell Marine more than 40 years ago, Harry successfully built that company and its reputation based on his original ideas, highly trained engineers, skilled drafts people, and prototype and production specialists. Schoell Marine covers all facets of contemporary boat design and manufacturing. His inventiveness has resulted in over 40 specialized patents and patent applications, and Harry is known throughout the marine industry for his genius and is highly sought after for his knowledge and expertise. He is always thinking ahead and “outside the box”. Harry also patented a Jet Drive System and a trimmable surface drive, as well as a “Ground Effect Craft” that would gently glide above the water using surface effect as the medium. Harry also holds patents on a lightweight yet powerful, compact internal engine that he designed and built in 1990. Harry has won the Engineer of the Year Award and Designer of the Year Award from Vapor Trails Magazine. He has also been presented with four different Innovation of the Year Awards from the NMMA (National Marine Manufacturers Association): one for a multi-hull boat design, one for a surface drive propulsion system, one for marine engine conversion, and a final one for a stepped hull design. All designs were patented in recent years. Harry belongs to SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers), the ASME (American Society of Marine Engineers), and The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers.
