We Are The Antique Outboard Motor Club

Collecting antique outbards since 1965

In 1866, the first outboard device was patented. Since that time, over 160 manufacturers have entered the industry – few remain. Names like Caille, Waterman, Walnut, Lockwood, Motorgo, Columbian, Gray and Ferro are all forgotten except at AOMCI.

Your membership in AOMCI will provide you with a rich mixture of personal associations and accomplishments. You’ll meet interesting new people while following leads provided by the Club to add motors to your collection; make new friends by joining a chapter of the Club in your area or by corresponding with other members and realize a great deal of satisfaction and pride from participating in displays, shows and Club Meets.
