This remarkable vessel has enjoyed only three owners since being commissioned in 1947. She has always been professionally maintained with a crew of one or two. Her most recent refit in 2000, at Derecktor’s Shipyard in Mamaroneck, NY, was approximately $1.3m. She has had a new bottom, rewired, replumbed, new engines, generators, pumps, compressors, etc. All electronics and aids to navigation have been replaced or updated. Brightwork recently stripped - the yacht is hauled and painted every year. The detail incorporated into this yacht is exquisite. She is a classic which has defied time and has many years left with the proper care. EMPRESS is being offered at a fraction of her replacement cost, and is available for immediate use, in turn key condition, fully equipped, with linens, cutlery, glassware, and all essentials for the individual who can appreciate a classic of a by-gone era. $450,000.
