The golden age of motorboating got underway post-WWII and makers were developing affordable motors for a new class of hobbyists eager to take to the water.
The Inspiration behind our '1950s 5.5HP Vintage Outboard Motor' Art Print
As a kid growing up at a cottage in Muskoka, I learned to fish and found my youthful independence ripping around the lake in an old fishing boat powered by a little but mighty 5.5HP motor just like this. My Dad bought it in the late 50s and every year we'd pull the old girl out of the boathouse, tinker and tune a bit, away she'd go for another year. That motor lasted for at least 40 years.
This print is one in a series of stand-alone outboard motor prints from the 1940s through the 1970s. If you prefer our entire collection of motors on one print, you can order that too. Any would make a great addition to your cottage, home decor or the ultimate man cave décor.
