This page is for those who want the instruction to fold a traditional origami motorboat.


This traditional origami motorboat is similar to the traditional origami sampan boat. Two model share the same folding technique of opening a pocket. However, there is a difference. This origami motorboat has two nice decks.


Before working on this model, you need to know what valley-fold and mountain-fold are. If you know these two folding techniques, then you will have no problem in making origami motorboat.


If you are ready, then let's get started.

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami motorboat. It is a little easier if the front and the back side of the paper are slightly different whether it be in texture or color.

Make sure the paper that you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles equal 90 degrees). The paper I am using here is a typical 15cm x 15cm origami paper. It you are novice in origami, it would be better if you try this model with a larger size paper.
