Dear Owens Yacht Marque Club:

I am looking for anyone who has knowledge of a 1947 42' Owens Flaghsip that was named "Victory" at least through 1959 when she was sold from Baudium Yacht Harbor, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin (I believe she was sent to the West Coast? Oregon, I think.

Can anyone help me? The Victory was my grandfather's boat and I spent many summers on her.

Thank you,

1957 Owens 21' Express Cruiser for Sale

owens boat  

To all parties interested:

I have been the proud owner of a 1957 21' Owens express cruiser for the last 20 years. I have spent many days cruising the waters of Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands here in the Pacific Northwest. Sadly she suffered a cracked engine block 10 years ago and has been stored inside my garage, waiting for restoration, ever since.

She is in sound condition but needs new power and someTLC. I am not going to be able to devote the time this project will take and so I have to let her go to someone who can. She comes with a tandem trailer that also needs some work. I am willing to let her go at a very reasonable price. She has most all her original fittings, etc.

Anyone interested can contact me for more details at

1969 Owens Empress Sedan in danger!

An email from an Owens Yacht Fan --


I am in charge of disposing of a 1969 Owens empress sedan. Also known as a flagship I think. It is a 30-foot boat, has twin general motors V8s, 350 or 327, not sure. The boat has been out of the water for over four years due to the owner's health. It could be fixed up and made nice
again, or someone could surely use the parts out of it.

He has asked me to tear it apart, sell what I can and burn the hull. It would be a crying shame to do that to this boat.

There are pictures of the boat at:

If there is anyone who would be interested in this boat, please make me an offer. I really really don't want to burn it.

I can be contacted

There are other Owens boats for sale on the BOAT/US web, see this page and then search under "Owens."
