Assorted Vintage Outboard Motors (Version 2)$45.00
The first outboard motors, developed as early as 1870, were electrically driven. By the early 1900s, the first internal combustion-powered model was patented, and by 1915, thousands of motors were propelling small boats across the water. The golden age of motor-boating got underway post-WWII and really took off during the 1950s through the 1970s when it became more accessible to the masses.
The Inspiration behind our 'Assorted Vintage Outboard Motors-Version 2' Art Print
As a kid growing up on the Kawartha and Muskoka lakes systems, I loved boat watching and touring marinas. I got pretty good a picking out motor brands from a distance, but my research leading up to the creation of this print revealed a few models I'd never come across.
My particular interests lie with models from the 1940s to the 1970s. This print is the second of two in my collection that feature a mix of funky, bizarre and elegant designs from that era. Each motor featured can be ordered as a stand-alone print. But if you prefer the entire collection, this is the print for you. It makes a great addition to any cottage, home decor or the ultimate man cave décor.
