This remarkable vessel has enjoyed only 3 owners since being commissioned in 1947.  She has always been professionally maintained with a crew of 1 or 2.  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
