First Report from Seattle by Dennis Lawrence

Seattle, home to Microsoft, Boeing Aircraft, Starbucks Coffee, Google, just to name a few. Seattle is also home to some of the most spectacular cruising grounds in the entire world! Here in the Pacific Northwest, with British Columbia and the Inside Passage, one could spend many years voyaging and never go to the same anchorage or place twice! The "gateway" to Alaska!

Seattle is also now my home as I open the doors of Kadey-Krogen Yachts new West Coast office. Now, East meets West in a cohesive Kadey-Krogen Yachts corporate umbrella of coverage with three offices to serve current and future owners n Stuart, Annapolis, and now Seattle.

The location will be very familiar to West Coast Kadey-Krogen fans as we have moved into the space formerly occupied by Passage Maker Yachts at the Ocean Alexander Marine Center on the north side of Lake Union. Passage Maker Yachts was our dealer for many years and earned a high level of respect from the community. Serendipitously their office space became available when Passage Maker decided to move to another location.

Proof positive that we're doing the right thing for both owners and those interested in a Kadey-Krogen came to me via an email the night before my departure to head to Seattle to officially open the office. It was from a Krogen 48' North Sea owner asking for assistance with a small problem. By having a direct corporate contact on the west coast, a true conduit to the inner workings of the company and not just a dealer as is so often the case in boating, it simplified the situation so as to facilitate a quick resolution.

What can you expect to see at our Seattle Office this summer? New Kadey-Krogens of course! The owners of the most recent Krogen 58' to be launched have been gracious enough to allow us to show their Krogen 58' as an example of what we can do for you. We have also commissioned a Krogen 44' to show at the new office. This new Krogen 44' is the wide-body saloon model and is the first Krogen 44' to boast granite counter tops! While we have had a price increase on the Krogen 44', this vessel will be available at the earlier pricing. Take advantage of this built in value and have a spectacular summer, voyaging the Puget Sound aboard your brand new Krogen 44'. You could then spend your time at the Trawler Fest shopping for electronics and that perfect tender. We've done the rest for you because this Krogen 44' has everything else that you would need n bow thruster, stabilizers, inverter, generator, and fuel polishing, just to name a few!

Not interested in a new Kadey-Krogen? We are also a full service yacht brokerage house as well! Whether you're shopping for that perfect trawler or giving thought to listing your present yacht for sale, please consider this. We have Kadey-Krogen Yachts offices in three of the most sought after yachting destinations in the world and are poised to offer you unsurpassed service in finding you a pre-owned yacht or listing yours for sale.

What can we do that an ordinary yacht broker cannot match? Instantaneous national hands-on exposure and Kadey-Krogen corporate attention. Simply put, there are no borders with a purchase from Kadey-Krogen Yachts! New or used we are ready to assist and look forward to welcoming you to the family.

Special Note: We will be at the Anacortes Trawler Fest May 22-25 and by all accounts this is shaping up to be a terrific event. Please make plans to come visit and get acquainted or reacquainted with us. As I have said since coming on board to all who will listen, 'If you haven't seen a Krogen lately, you haven't seen a Krogen!' Come see for yourself why a Kadey Krogen is "At Home on Any Sea", and why that is much more than a simple slogan.

My commitment to maintaining the renowned customer care that Kadey-Krogen Yachts is famous for is an absolute. I look forward to developing a long term relationship with our ever growing family of happy and enthusiastic owners!
