In an effort to provide greater convenience and closer proximity to air transportation via BWI for owners and customers along the north and mid-Atlantic Coast and Chesapeake Bay, Kadey-Krogen Yachts will move its Maryland sales facility to Port Annapolis Marina effective Monday, March 12, 2007. Kadey-Krogen will occupy interim office space at Port Annapolis until the company's new building is completed there in the fall of 2007.
'Our Krogen owners and customers are family to us, and we feel the facilities help us enhance our core values of capability, liveability, family and value. Amenities at the new marina include a pool, cafe, lounge with high speed internet, picnic shelters and handsome well-kept grounds. Downtown Annapolis sites and shopping are only a bicycle ride away,' says Larry Polster, Kadey-Krogen's vice president. 'Plus, Port Annapolis Marina offers on-site hauling to 55 tons, supporting our goal to provide service excellence for both new yacht sales and brokerage offerings.'
The Annapolis crew will market the company's current production of 39', 44', 48' and 58' trawler yachts featuring Krogen Pure Full Displacemento hulls and tri-level interior arrangements. Brokerage offerings will also be available. Kadey-Krogen personnel working in the Annapolis sales office with Polster include captains Greg Sapp and Kathleen Norfolk, and marketing assistant Casey Graves.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of trawler yacht builder Kadey-Krogen Yachts, with 550 vessels launched since 1977. Coincidentally, 2007 marks the 30th anniversary of the Port Annapolis Marina as well. Kadey-Krogen anniversary celebrations will take place throughout the year at Trawler Fests and boat shows, with a grand bash at the owner group Krogen Cruisers Rendezvous October 4-7, 2007, in Solomons, MD. More details will be available at http://www.kadeykrogen.com.
'Everyone should live their dream,' says Polster. 'Life is too short not to. Our trawler yachts enable their owners to fulfill their dreams. And our new location will enable us to better assist our owners.'
Port Annapolis Marina is located on Back Creek at 7074 Bembe Beach Road, Annapolis, MD. 21403.
