BORSAW 40 “Aries”

A brief history: In January 1946, the sailing yachtsmen of the world were amazed to learn that the Owens Yacht Company, a builder of cruising and fishing powerboats and a supplier to the Navy of thousands of landing craft and rescue boats was offering a racing, cruising sailboat to the world, a 40’ cutter of their design. They claimed that she was sea-kindly, fast, and comfortable.  Most boats of this type were designed by a handful of men located in NY or Boston, and from contract to launching took about two years. Owens were built in Baltimore, Md. One of the most famous Owens cutters was Ash Brown’s Carousel in San Diego. Some of the boats sailed in various races including the 1946-47 St. Pete to Havana race, Annapolis-Oxford, Polar Island, Chicago-Mackinac Island, Grosse Pointe regatta, Put in Bay (1st & 2nd), Swiftsure Lightship 1947, and the Chesapeake Fall series 1947. The design built in wood was a huge success. One of the wooden boats was used for a mold and built in Buffalo.  A Norwegian craftsman was brought in to do the interior work on 6 of these boats called a Borsaw 40. The letters coming from the last names of the original 6 buyers. They were built in fiberglass and       afterward the mold was sold to the Allied boat company who modified the transom, rudder and developed the renowned Allied 39. Of course, Hinckley’s famous version was the Hinckley 41, Finn Mac Camhaill, and won many races with a shorter keel, spade rudder and called it a Hinckley Competition 41.

Locally, the Borsaw 40 has won numerous races, regattas and turns heads in every port. While an older boat that will require cosmetic maintenance, the bones are as solid as the day it was laid up!  If you’re an aficionado of the classic lines of sharp bows and long overhanging sterns and a powerful rig which performs in light and heavy airs, you will love this boat! Aries has won silver locally for years and is well known in the WNY area. Present owner will do an orientation to any buyer of the ship and her systems.

Complete with binder of all equipment and manuals from the building of the boat to today, complete with all correspondence. Set of slides of the building of the boat.

Presently located in the water at the 2nd oldest Yacht Club in the US, Buffalo Yacht Club
