The first Krogen 44' AE, the latest model in our Advanced Ergonomics (AE) series, is nearly complete. Building on and inspired by the success of the Krogen 48' AE which was introduced last year, the Krogen 44' AE has more than 50 ergonomic and technical changes highlighted by a new galley layout and a new flybridge redesigned with both entertaining and piloting in mind. Check out the following construction photos of the new 44' AE taken just a few weeks prior to completion.
New galley: This new and larger galley features a Viking range, 18 cubic foot household refrigerator, convection microwave as well as tremendous counter space and storage.
New engine room access: The stairs easily lift with the aid of dual gas struts to reveal walk-in access to the engine room.
New guest stateroom: Owners choose from several spacious guest stateroom layouts: a den/office arrangement (shown), a dedicated queen berth suite, or "Jack and Jill" berths for the grandkids.
New flybridge layout: The new flybridge features an L-shaped settee and room for dual helm chairs making this a great space for piloting and/or entertaining.
New steps to flybridge: Molded steps, not a ladder, make access to the boat deck and redesigned flybridge a snap.
New boarding doors: The new walk-through boarding doors make access to and from the large cockpit as simple as taking a step.
New pilothouse helm: The redesigned wrap-around helm in the pilothouse provides ample space for today's larger monitors and integrated navigation suites.
