Definitely not your kid's toy steam boat. . .
If you're looking for an "exclusive" steam pop-pop boat, this is it! As best we can tell, it is the only working outboard pop-pop motor made and it comes attached to a sleek, custom-designed speedboat.

Individually crafted, this custom outboard is one of a very limited production run - only 30 were made! It is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity from the designer and builder. If you thought you already had everything, guess again - here is your chance to own Outboard #12.
The interior of the outboard motor is shown in the bottom photograph on the left. This motor, labeled #4, is the one that goes with boat #12.
This type of boat is known as a pop-pop or putt-putt boat. It is named for the popping or putting sound of its small steam engine. For information on how the steam engine (flash boiler) works click here.
An html version of our
steam engine cycle tutorial is found here.
The boat uses standard pop-pop boat sized candles. If you want some candles for this boat, just ask by putting a note in the comments area as you check out. (There is no charge.)
Made in the U.S.A.
Dimensions: the boat without the motor attached measures about 10" x 4" x 1.2" (25.4 cm x 10.2 cm x 3.2 cm).
Not a young child's toy! Some edges may be sharp and, of course, an open flame is required to run the steam engine. This boat is intended for adults. It is not suitable for those 12 or under.
