The Emperor Class

Our Modern Apartment Range

From £95,500 ex VAT

The Emperor Class has been one of our ranges of builds for several years now & has been consistently popular since her introduction.


She not only boasts the popular reverse layout but manages to incorporate a large dining area without comprimising the saloon & living space. A large range of optional extras are available to personalise the boat into making her your dream home.

When designing The Contessa Class we focused on several key elements to set her apart from anything else on the market. Firstly the most important part to any build is the layout, please see below a description of the layout. Secondly, the lining throughout is an Egyptian Cotton T& G Ceiling, Egyptian Cotton cabin sides and the unique T&G Toy Solider Grey lining below the gunwales. We think that the dark solid oak flooring compliments the lining perfectly giving her a rustic finish.

She consists of a high specification more than suitable to living aboard. She also benefits from a reverse layout with a twist, an essentail part of any home.

Their is a large Cruiser stern with Taff rails which can be upgraded to a Euro Cruiser or Luxury Euro for an additional cost (call up for more information on our extras list). An offset entrance leading into a large saloon with a featured bulkhead with widescreen TV, storage and 2.5 Sterling Pro Combi S Inverter. The saloon also has a Morso Squirrel Stove and 2 side hatches, all included in the standard build.

The large walkthrough galley with a raised breakfast bar makes for a distinct contempory atmosphere whilst still feeling familiar and homelike, unlike the clincical feeling one may get from many modern boats on todays the market.

A large belfast sink, chunky oak worktops as well as modern splashback tiles are included in the standard specfication price. An eye level microwave, oven/grill and large 4 ring burner are alsl included in the price.

An offset corridor which gains an extra 2′ width compared to many boats is a clever use of space that can be used for either a small desk/study area or additional storage. The shower room consits of a P Shape Bath with overhead shower, Vetus Maecerator WC and modern wash basin.

The bedroom benefits from a large fixed double, underbed storage and full side wardrobe on the bedroom/shower room bulkhead. A full size dresser solid oak flooring.
