Dear Krogen Enthusiast,

In college in the early 1980’s, I watched Late Night with David Letterman almost every night. It was the perfect way to unwind from a busy day of “hitting the books”. By the mid-80’s, Dave evolved and with that came his famous “Top Ten List”. Kadey-Krogen Yachts has also evolved and we’ve come up with a list of our own. Though not funny like Dave’s, our Top Ten Reasons to List with Kadey-Krogen Yachts is a good read.  

If selling your current vessel is an impediment to buying a Kadey-Krogen, then this list was written for you. Check it out in our Topside News. 

Fair winds, 

Larry Polster
Vice President

Inside Look at the Krogen 68′ Expedition 
From the keel up, the Krogen 68’ Expedition was designed by Kadey-Krogen Yachts to be handled comfortably by two people, yet also have a dedicated crew space. She is available in two, three or four cabin versions with two or three heads. With phenomenal sea keeping ability, this good-looking boat defines quality and excellence in her class.

We have gorgeous, brand new interior renderings to walk you through. Designs by A La Mer, Inc., a premier interior yacht designer.

The Principal and the Crossing Guard
A former educator and meteorologist, Richard Bost used careful planning to find a helm setup within his budget for a transatlantic cruise to the Baltics and beyond. Flip to page 24 of this month’s Power & Motoryacht magazine, or online here, to read how this former dreamer prepared his Krogen 42′ with the proper electronics to become the doer he always wanted to be.

Letterman had his. We have our own Top Ten List. 
Let us count down the reasons why listing your quality boat with Kadey-Krogen Yachts is the best decision. Click here for a Top Ten List crafted by your Krogen crew.



Boaters since the late 1960’s, Mike (the sailor) and Betsey (the skiier) met though an orgainzed sailing and snow skiing club and later married. While they thoroughly enjoyed decades of racing, both slopes and sail, today the Gallis enjoy life at a less aggressive speed. A lover of adventure and staying active, Betsey offers her cruising perspective as valuable crew.

In the 80’s and early 90’s we raced and sailed several one design sailboat classes, so I know a thing or two about being crew! Our last race boat was a 19-foot Celebrity class dinghy, with a cold molded mahogany hull. At that time, we also cruised the Chesapeake Bay on friends’ power boats and chartered sailboats, and absolutely fell in love with cruising on the Bay.

After a 10-year hiatus from boating, we reaquainted with the Chesapeake Bay in 2003 with the purchase of a power boat. We traded-up to our first trawler in 2010, which was a 1988 Albin 36′ that we named “Decompression Time”. After two years, we realized we wanted something newer, where the only mistakes we needed to fix were our own! In March of 2013, we ordered “Katey T”, our Kadey-Krogen 44′ AE that we LOVE!

We’re still exploring the Chesapeake. Our favorite cruise so far has been to St. Michaels–an easy, four-hour journey from our homeport of Rock Hall, Maryland. St. Michaels is an interesting town with many fantastic shops and restaurants, and the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. One can spend endless hours exploring this wonderful museum! Whether we travel to St. Michaels or take a weekday trip on the Corsica River, our Kadey-Krogen is so seaworthy and comfortable that the experiences are always enjoyable. Believe it or not, even boat maintenance is entertaining!

I’ve always been crew, but that’s just as important as being the captain. As crew, you have to learn all about your boat and navigating, which makes each and every trip go smoother. The ability to help quickly in the event of an emergency or problem is one of the most important assets of any crew. Don’t be afraid to be the best crew to your captain, and enjoy every minute you get to spend on your Kadey-Krogen (whether new or used, you’ll be glad you did)!

Respectfully submitted,
Betsey Galli
