Welcome to NEXT DANCE, a turn-key and beautiful 2016 Krogen - 48AE Widebody, privately owned and proudly offered by Kadey-Krogen Yachts. She is one of those inviting Krogens that when you step aboard you exhale - and know you are home. Fun times are ahead. If you are preparing to do the Great Loop, Bahamas, Caribbean - or even considering a full-time liveaboard, then this opportunity is yours.
Her owners invite you to discover why you will not find a better value – and why NEXT DANCE is a perfect example of newly built yacht, with every option carefully thought out, tested and proven. NEXT DANCE is ready for you now to start your cruising adventure with peace of mind on a like-new boat.
Here are a few examples of the thoughtful approach featured aboard NEXT DANCE:
Her second owners achieved their short-term "bucket list" goal of yacht ownership including living aboard and cruising offshore. They have taken careful measures to maintain NEXT DANCE in the highest standard, while adding a few new upgrades.
Do not make any cruising decision without first seeing NEXT DANCE in person. You will not be disappointed.
NEXT DANCE is a 48AE widebody two stateroom, two full head model - plus an additional convertible berth option in the pilothouse for occasional guests.
Boarding any Kadey-Krogen AE is made easy by the ergonomic step-through boarding doors located both port and starboard in the cockpit. So docking to either port or starboard side has little bearing on egress. There is an additional boarding gate in the transom leading to the swim platform, as well as two boarding gates just aft of the foredeck.
The cockpit of the Krogen 48AE is enormous. Our signature fully-covered cockpit, which many owners refer to this area as their "Back Porch", greatly extends the living from cockpit to saloon by opening the Diamond Seaglaze welded aluminum, storm proof double doors. The expanse of living is truly unmatched by any of our competing builders – and where you spend much quality time.
Entering the saloon, you will be welcomed by a warm social space designed for entertainment and living. Sharing time with each other, friends, enjoying an epicurean's delight at the table, or maybe even catching a game together on the pop-up TV.
To do so, you need the warmth of American Cherry woods, Ekornes leather recliners, a custom table that converts from a coffee table to dinner table comfortably seating six and of course a large screen hi-def TV on a lift system. Custom window treatments round out the visual appetite. Storage is a must and particular attention was given to both bulk drop-down storage, as well as easy access drawers and cabinets. Bonus? Some drawers were built for custom wine bottle storage.
The galley - what's not to love? All galley equipment of premium brand, including a Bluestar commercial range. You find the space both functional, with custom-sized drawers made to accommodate a multitude of kitchen ware, but also beautiful with custom tile and countertops. Across from the galley is a china cabinet and buffet area alongside a built-in wine refrigerator and four extra deep drawers for galley storage. Bonus? All of the drawers throughout NEXT DANCE are on strong, stainless-steel glider slides. No rust, no warping.
Numerous quality-of-life features were added when Krogen introduced the AE model. Worth noting are the interior steps, featuring natural 8" risers – just like home. But before we proceed below to the living quarters, you'll enjoy accessing the engine room with the newly designed and enlarged engine room entrance. And the engine room is ultra-bright with the new LED engine room overhead lighting units. We continue to work on equipment placement and NEXT DANCE represents the efficiency of that technology.
Proceeding down to the living quarters, the guest stateroom of NEXT DANCE was built upon the most popular choices. The desk was slightly enlarged to accommodate file sized locking drawers for keeping your important records neatly organized and private.
Across from the guest stateroom is the guest head, the stall shower has a glass door and inboard of that is a full-sized separate washer and dryer. Custom back splashes add a touch of class and the heads are top-of-the-line quiet flushing type.
Forward to the master suite, is a full queen-sized berth with orthopedic mattress, dual seating, dual hanging lockers, en-suite head and separate shower and large chest of drawers. The berth is on gas struts and easily lifts to reveal a commodious locker. Ventilation is superb, provided so by two Lewmar Ocean Series deck hatches, fitted with Oceanair duo-screens and four opening portlights. Of note, all interior doors are O-ring gasketed to greatly reduce noise transfer. The hull is cored from above the waterline to reduce noise and greatly aid insulation.
Below decks there are two large machinery spaces and yet another great place for bulk storage!
Up to the pilothouse. The owners of NEXT DANCE opted to keep the area more open by installing a single LeBroc high-backed helm chair, but the space can easily accommodate a second helm chair if desired. The pilothouse settee pulls out to make into a double berth, should the need arise. A large hi-low settee table is perfect for working, or enjoying a light meal. Much thought was given to the navigational electronics and controls layouts – see the detailed list under electronics.
Stepping through the Diamond Seaglaze stormproof dutch doors leads out to the foredeck area. At the front of the pilothouse is a bench seat - an ideal place to enjoy a well-deserved glass of wine after setting the anchor and soaking in your new surroundings. There's storage beneath that seating area - and take note of the separate anchor locker up forward, sealed off with that aluminum commercial powder-coated deck hatch leading to a collision bulkhead.
Moving aft on the port side are molded fiberglass stairs leading up to the boatdeck/flybridge areas. With the signature feature of the extended deck, this allows us to place the tender athwart ships leaving a wonderfully useful deck area just aft of the flybridge deck. On NEXT DANCE, you've got a summer kitchen equipped with a BBQ - add table and chairs for alfresco dining OR turn into the ultimate dance floor - dancing under the stars.
Take a single step up, brings you to the flybridge deck. And another AE Life-Quality enhancing feature, the new flybridge is wider and has a dinette and room for two helm chairs. NEXT DANCE.
You can have it all with NEXT DANCE.
