Krogen 50′ Open: Progress Report #10

The wait is nearly over.  As of this writing, the first Krogen 50′ Open had been moved outside for testing!  Enjoy this final series of construction photos.

The Salon, Galley and Pilothouse

Standing at the salon door looking forward.

 

Looking into the galley.

 

The “dead” corner next tot he stove raises up…

and reveal a hidden, two tiered, storage compartment.

 

Storage in the forward part of the galley with the auxiliary counter above which is deep enough to set plates or tray on.

 

Looking at the 30″ Wolf range and main galley counter.

 

The Subzero refrigerator and freezer as well as wine cooler.

 

The pilothouse settee (without cushions at this point).  Note the floor covering to protect the sole during construction.

 

The pilothouse helm.  The displays are 22″ Garmin multi-function units.

 

      

Looking aft from the pilothouse with the wall raised for privacy and/or night running, and…

Accommodations

Master berth with padded headboard and large portholes.  There are a total of six large drawers under the bed.  Four are at the foot of the bed and are visible and there is one on each side of the bed.

 

Looking forward from the foot of the master berth there is a small closet outboard and the double doors conceal the separate washer and dryer.

 

The main closet which is floor to ceiling as well as a view into the head.

 

Yes, his and hers sinks in the master head!

 

Janet and I opted for a dedicated office space which is located between the master and guest cabins.

 

The guest cabin is forward.

 

The guest head.

 

Engine Room

Looking aft while standing in front of the main engine.  The door in the back of the photo leads to the lazarette. For perspective as to the amount of headroom, the hot water heater in the back, right of the photo is a 30 gallon tank!

 

Looking forward standing at the workbench.

 

And the ultimate perspective.  Two grown men standing at the front of the engine!

 

Some Details

Everything is neatly lableled.

 

The yellow tape is part of their testing procedure.  As each circuit is tested, the status is marked on the tape

 

Exterior

The settee on the fordeck flanked by doors on each side from the Portuguese Bridge.

 

High bulwarks on the foredeck for safety.  Dirty water from the anchor and chain will run through the drain at the bottom of the photo.

 

The flybridge helm.  The red hose is used to fill and bleed the hydraulic steering system.

 

Looking across the flybridge to the large, L-shape settee.

 

The summer kitchen, complete with refrigerator, grill and sink, is just behind the settee.

 

That does it for update #10.  I’ll post again upon her arrival.
