Dear Krogen Enthusiast,

Earlier this week, I was out on the sea trial and survey of a Krogen 39′. It was sunny and 85 degrees with a gentle breeze and low humidity. The surveyor asked me to put the boat through her paces. Idle, cruise, and wide open throttle. Then, he had me circle hard to starboard and circle hard to port. I made the perfect figure-eight! Noticing I had a huge smile on my face, a customer on board said, “you really love your job!” I responded, “Yes I do, but you know the old saying, a bad day on the water beats a good day in the office, anytime.” She smiled that same agreeing smile, that I bet you have on your face as you read this now!

We have 22 vessels listed for sale, and a size and price for every budget. C’mon and join the fun. Get out of the office.

Fair winds, 

Larry Polster
Vice President

Shop Talk

In the July/August 2016 issue of PassageMaker magazine, don’t miss the one-on-one “Shop Talk” interview with our very own Larry Polster and the magazine’s editor. He shares the definition of a bluewater boat, what brings boaters–not just sailors–to the trawler market, new model news, and more. 

Read the full interview.

Krogen 50′ Open Update

A Kadey-Krogen yacht is built from three main molds, first being the hull, second being the single mold for the cockpit, salon, pilothouse, Portuguese bridge and foredeck, and lastly the boatdeck and flybridge. Since the last issue of NAVAID, the tooling for the second mold has progressed such that, now the Portuguese bridge, pilothouse and cockpit are looking like a boat! Once the plug is smooth and fair, lamination of the mold will happen.

Head over to our Facebook page for more pictures of this phase, and keep reading NAVAID for more production updates throughout the summer.

Blue Water Profile

Long before the word “trawler” came in vogue, Kadey-Krogens were cruising the world. And for more than two decades, PassageMaker magazine has honored the spirit of adventure in everyone. To introduce their Bluewater issue, the magazine writes, “Nothing defines adventure more than bluewater cruising: Expanding horizons, tackling the great expanses of seas across the globe. Exploring new cultures, wildlife, and cuisines along the way.”

Sheworthy

Meet Fred and Rose Shaheen! They are the delightful owners of the first Krogen 58′ EB (Extended Bridge), that made her successful in-water debut at the Yachts Miami Beach show in February. As they juggle careers and cruising (for now), Rose found a few minutes to reflect on her first few months with their beloved BULLDOG.

I am relatively new to boating, and our 58EB “Bulldog” is our third boat in as many years. Fred and I work full-time so the plan was to find the right off-shore capable boat to use in our eventual retirement and spend the last few years in the workforce sailing her on the weekends and vacations. In this way, once our cruising life begins we will feel very comfortable with her.

My main concerns in choosing a boat were safety, reliability, and liveability, in that order. We took a lot of boats for a test drive, starting with the Krogen, which became the benchmark for all three. None of the others (Nordhavn, Outer Reef, Selene, Michelson, Bering, Hatteras, and Fleming) were able to match the 58EB, particularly on the third feature: liveability. When I’m aboard Bulldog, I feel as though I am truly at home. The workmanship is second to none, especially the joinery.

Fred (pictured here with our daughter) had lots of seagoing experience as a Naval officer in a previous life which has made the learning experience much easier for me. Even so, after my first full day on Bulldog, I was able to manage all of the switchology for all the housekeeping functions. Unlike other boats we have had, on Bulldog, all of the breakers are clearly labeled so coming on board and making everything run is a breeze. Fred and I have always shared the philosophy that we both need to know how to drive the vessel and the learning curve for me on running things at the helm has been very manageable.

As to that livability factor, I love to cook and the galley is a dream with more than adequate storage, a full-size fridge, four-burner gas range, multi-function microwave, and convection oven. The finishes in the galley are first-rate: beautiful countertops and backsplash, high-end double sink and faucet.

The fine workmanship, of course, extends to the remainder of the living space. The cabins are a wonder – abundant storage, the same fine finishes, and a well-considered layout.

The 58EB is wonderful in every way inside, but my favorite place to run the boat, to entertain, read a book or just take a nap has to be the enormous fly bridge. We have already entertained a dozen people in this space and could have fit a few more.

Whether out on the water or in port, the Krogen 58EB has every feature we could want and some that I didn’t even consider. I unhesitatingly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an easy-to-handle boat that feels like a home away from home.                  

Respecfully Submitted,
Rose

Owner Insights


Aboard Krogen 48′ AE NEXT DANCE, Mark and Pauline Masuhr are adventuring everywhere.  

We have slowly cruised up the east coast, now over 1,250+ miles since leaving Marathon on May 23. We have taken our time and stopped to see sights and wait for bad weather to pass us by. Now we’ve arrived in the Chesapeake Bay, where we have decided to spend our summer cruising and exploring.
