Dynamically Different : The Owens Yacht Company

Founded in 1925 by Charles Councilman Owens, the Owens Yacht Company (originally the Owens Boat Company) is remembered for their sleek and award-winning designs, as well as their innovation and entrepreneurship that contributed to advances in maritime technologies. The Owens Yacht Company grew and flourished through the efforts and cooperation of the children of Charles Owens; including Molly, Charles Junior (also known as "Chuck"), Norman, Jack, and Billy Owens. The company was eventually sold to the Brunswick Corporation in 1965, where the Owens name would disappear. This exhibit will highlight the distinguished history of the company, the boats that were created, and a few of the notable employees that contributed to the success of the Owens Yacht Company. The creation of this exhibit would not have been possible without the diligent oral histories collected by Mike Miron, an enthusiast of Annapolis history and the Owens' family.
