From a heritage of hardworking shrimp boats, the Krogen 42 is every bit as seaworthy but with all the comforts of an offshore pleasure craft. Designer Jim Krogen has merged tried and true construction with fresh, innovative features. The rounded transom of her full-keeled displacement full rises out of the water for minimum drag and maximum fuel efficiency. At eight knots the 42 has a range close to 2,200 nautical miles. The hull and cabin are constructed of fiberglass sandwich with closed-cell PVC foam core, making the Krogen 42 shock-, sound- and temperature-insulated. The 42ís salon is bright and airy with sliding picture windows, warm and congenial with teak-capped overhead


beams and parquet floor. Double doors open to the salon deck and port steps to the pilothouse trimmed in teak with sliding watch berth that sleeps two. The roomy master stateroom features a wide double berth, built-in mirrored vanity, double closet and four bronze portholes. The guest stateroom doubles as a den with L-shaped seating, drawers and storage under, drop-down upper berth and desk. Master and guest heads are sizeable and teak trimmed with ample locker space and molded shower stalls. The open galley is filled with every modern convenience. Power is a single Perkins 135 hp engine.
