1960s Wooden Outboard for Sale

Posted on March 29, 2016

The Georgian Bay Land Trust is selling a boat and motor that were bequeathed to us along with the Thomson Reserve property in Nares Inlet. Please see below for details about the boat and how to make an offer.

Thomson Boat

This is the boat that accompanied the final bequest of the cottage islands from Robert Thomson’s estate to the Georgian Bay Land Trust. It came documented as “a 1971 Voyager boat and 1964 Johnson 50 hp motor” but it is likely that if those years apply, they have been reversed. The motor is clearly not from 1964, but the hull could be.

Boat is being sold in as-is condition and is in storage at Springhaven Lodge in Nares Inlet. It was launched and used last summer by the Thomson cottage tenants; it was watertight and ran fine.

Minimum offer $2000.00

Please send your offers in confidence by April 30, 2016 to info@gblt.org. The successful buyer should be prepared to pick the boat up from Springhaven this Spring.

Thanks very much!
