Description

The Hinckley Owens 40 Cutter is one of the most beautiful and best performing sailing yachts that Hinckley built during the 50's.

Behold, the restoration of "Desperado" is as complete and beautiful as one could ask for!

This boat has huge "Wow Factor"

Designed by Norman G. Owens of Owens Boatworks in Baltimore, Maryland and first produced in 1946. Owens Boatworks produced 41 of these cutter designs as sleek, powerful, fast , Chesapeake Bay racers. The 3 Owens brothers decided to discontinue production in 1949 and concentrate on power boat construction. The plans were offered to the Henry R. Hinckley Co. and the Hinckley Company built 12 of the wooden cutters in the 50's before shifting to the new fiberglass construction. Only 4 cutters were built with the mahogany hard dodgers--they were referred to as "Doghouses"

There have been 7 previous owners prior to the current owners.

The current owners purchased the boat in 2002 and spent almost 2 years doing a total restoration of "Desperado". The restoration was done by a professional shipwright that lived with the project until she was completed in 2004. An outline of the restoration is as follows:

  • Restoration of "Desperado" began May 25, 2002
  • Demo work included removal of all hardware, plumbing, wiring, wheel pedestal, and spars.
  • Removed teak decking and re-planed for reuse.
  • Replaced damaged deck frames.

  • Removed fuel and water tanks for inspection and cleaning.
  • Removed Westerbeke diesel for a complete rebuild.
  • Removed all varnish from cabin truck and doghouse and refinished with varnish.
  • Epoxy and faired carvel coachroof
  • Installed new port glass and bronze port rings.
  • Sanded hull to bare wood and applied 2 layers of 1/4" marine plywood over existing mahogany hull. The overlay was epoxy saturated, glued and SS stapled to the hull to form a "cold mold" overlay. When cured, the hull was sanded, faired, re-sanded, and fiberglassed from toe rail to keel with 6 oz. cloth and epoxy resin. Hull was sanded, faired, primed and painted with Interlux "Toplac"--Flag Blue.
  • Installed a new mahogany rub rail with bronze guard, new mahogany cap rail and added 1/4" mahogany veneer to the toe rail face.
  • Dry-fit, epoxy and screwed the planed 5/8" teak deck onto to the new deck.
  • Caulked decks
