Herter's was a US-based mail-order catalog house that sold outdoor equipment to American sportsmen. In the 1950s, they decided to jump into the fast-growing fiberglass boat market with their own design. Fiberglass offered boat designers of the era the ability to sculpt like their automotive counterparts and sculpt they did. Boats like the Herter's Flying Fish, with its large sweeping tail fins, made quite a statement on the water.
The inspiration behind our '1957 Herter's Flying Fish Speedboat' Art Print
As a kid growing up on the Kawartha and Muskoka lakes systems, I was an avid boat watcher. I loved touring local marinas, poking around the back corners of lots looking for old beauties. I came across some pretty cool boats back then, but my research leading up to the creation of this print revealed a few models I'd never been fortunate enough to find, like this 1957 Herter's Flying Fish Speedboat.
I love the craftsmanship and style of these old boats. This print is one in a series of vintage boats in my cottage collection featuring some very distinctive models from the 1920s through to the 1960s. Any of these prints will make a great addition to your cottage, home decor or the ultimate man cave décor.
