Broker's Comments

One of only three Empress 32's that were built for HM Customs and Excise, this is a substantial boat that has been very well thought out. Internal space is amazing whilst the side doors make deck access a breeze. She is equally at home on a river, an estuary or as a sea going cruiser. If you are looking for a serious cruiser that can be used as a live-aboard but is substantially under 50K then you must come and see this one.
