Evinrude 5 1/2hp 1959 Golden Jubilee edition

1959 Evinrude 5 1/2hp special Golden Anniversary Edition in superb original condition.

Produced to celebrate Evinrude's 50th anniversary, this twin cylinder outboard is a classic, period engine. It has been on display in our showroom for many years and is thought to have only had one owner prior to that. It is in remarkable condition and even has the original external fuel tank with it. It is in remarkable condition and perfect for a collection. The engine has not been run for some years, but with a little effort, should be able to be used, perhaps on a matching classic period boat.


Circa 1927 Elto 4hp Light Twin in good condition and complete with original steering rope for the engine's inbuilt rudder, plus a second Elto from the same period that can either be used for spares or could be restored with a lot of work! The former has been on display for many years in our showroom.

1916 Evinrude 1 1/2hp with external ignition box. It has been shown at various events and kept in our showroom the rest of the time. It has been owned by us for about 60 years!

Other period engines include a Britannia from the 1950's, a 1930's Clarke Troller, plus more Johnson and Evinrude outboards dating back to the 1920's.
