Dear Krogen Enthusiast,

This past weekend I had the opportunity to get out on the water. As I headed north from Annapolis underneath the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, I looked up to a sea of cars at a standstill. Hundreds, if not thousands, of people were stuck in traffic headed to or from their beach properties. There is another way to have waterfront property; it’s a Kadey-Krogen–and a traffic jam is four dolphins playing in your bow wave!

Fair winds, 

Larry Polster
Vice President

Dinghy Concert in Antigua! 

On April 20th, in Falmouth Harbour, Antigua, more than 20 dinghies rafted together behind M/V Partners, Richard & Lavinia Maggs’ Krogen 42′, for a front row show.  

“We were pleased and proud to host the dinghy concert from our ‘back porch’ for White Chocolate, a fabulous band of talented cruiser musicians. Performing that night were David Ball and Trudie Cardone (guitar and voice), Gavin Morgan (smooth sax) and Randy Robinson (voice). Thanks to everyone who came to make it a fun and successful evening! Memories we will never forget– thanks to having this beautiful and sea-worthy Krogen!”

Navigating an Active Retirement

Valuable perspective from investment powerhouse, American Funds: “Retirement shouldn’t be a test of endurance, but rather an opportunity to use the luxury of time to follow your passions.”  

When the company learned of their clients Doug and Jan Martin, who followed their financial advisor’s advice and are now navigating retirement on “Day Dreams”, their Krogen 39′, they took the opportunity to interview and include the couple in their Spring/Summer 2015 issue of Investment Magazine.

Read how the Martins tested their retirement lifestyle, and learn the tips they took, here.  

Kadey-Krogen Yachts Plants Roots in Portsmouth

Scroll down. See those smiles? Pam and John Loving are loving the cruising life! This month we’ve invited the Navy wife of 26 years to tell you why her Kadey-Krogen is Sheworthy. Thanks, Pam!

When we started this journey 12 years ago, we had no idea what we were doing! My husband, John, and I knew we wanted to experience the cruising lifestyle to its fullest, but that didn’t make the decision to purchase Compass Rose, our Krogen 42′, easy. In fact, it was pretty scary as two very inexperienced boaters. Ultimately, we figured we had more money than time, and it was time to take the plunge. We got the hang of it and today, we’ve been full-time “live-aboards” since 2004.

One thing I remember realizing very early on was that I wanted to be an equal partner in this new adventure. I had a lot to learn. And that I did, with the help of a great network of people—Kadey-Krogen Yachts being one of many information sources. I would encourage more women to become fully engaged; it’s your boat, too. If you’re just going along for the ride, you are severely limiting your enjoyment of this fabulous lifestyle.

After spending 26 years as a Navy wife, I value time together; always being there for each other is important. We have certainly become closer as a result of cruising. I’d have to say the most rewarding thing about this lifestyle, is not the memorable sunrises and sunsets, beautiful anchorages, or the interesting friends you meet, it’s the subtleties of life onboard that all add up to the whole.

One of my biggest fears is waking up tomorrow and finding that it is all over!

“The galley on the 55′ is a chef’s dream. From the four-burner cooktop to the plethora of meal prep space and over-sized fridge, four course meals are no problem.”

-Daniel Harding, Senior Managing Editor, Power & Motoryacht magazine
