Description


Combining the proven Kadey-Krogen transoceanic full-displacement hull form along with an incredible one-level living interior, the Krogen 55' Expedition is literally a small Ship that delivers capability and comfort like no other vessel in her size range. 

CHOISI was built for an experienced yachting family, specifically for extended ocean voyaging with the family. She has 3-Cabins, plus the Pilothouse can be converted into a 4th cabin as needed. The 55' offers a Huge full-beam Saloon, Dining and Galley area that is perfect for large gatherings, while her many other spaces are available if you are looking for a little quiet time. Loads of outside deck space facilitates all kinds of activities and water toys.

CHOISI's extensive equipment list includes all the right stuff for serious offshore cruising: Hydraulic Thruster, Windlass & Stabilization; Dual Radars & GPS; Satellite Communication; Water Maker; Storm Shutters; Water-Tight Bulkheads; etc.  She is a proven voyager, with cruises from Alaska through the Panama Canal to the Caribbean and up the east coast to Canada and the Great Lakes in her Log. She has been expertly cared for and is as close to a new vessel as you will find this side of her $2.9M replacement cost!
