Bill Upfold has refined his Mid-Pilothouse Elite design over many years and it has gained a strong following with a large number of these vessels gracing the coastline. Empress is no exception to the rule, although a late 90s vessel you can see the styling flow throughout the vessel.
This comfortable coastal cruiser is powered with twin shaft drive Yanmar diesel engines giving a 18-20 knot cruise and it offers four cabins (nine berths) which is rare in a 14metre vessel. The master cabin is aft with three cabins forward, the large saloon amidships then leads up to the Upfold signature internal access to the pilot house. With a number of recent mechanical and electronic upgrades, this vessel is offered to the market at a realistic price and won’t last long.
