1962 Owens Flagship cabin cruiser, 27 feet, Double plank mahogany Cabin/Fly bridge Yacht with Chevy 327 engine. Great classic wood boat with lots of charm, perfect for cruising the lakes.

Features include:

Amazing lines, gorgeous wood finish, and plenty of comfort.

Teak swim platform with ladder.

4 person dining table

Sleeps 4 people (two in v-berth, two on converted table)

Ice box fridge

2 burner alcohol stove top and sink, stowage compartments, fresh water.

Enclosed head compartment with manual toilet.

I fell in love this Owens the minute I saw the Craigslist ad.... I didn't have her surveyed, I didn't look her over... I just bought her and brought her home.

I've been working on her for two years now and hope to get her in the water this year or next.
