After many years working in the marine industry, Sarah Angell Jones chose to transition her primary focus from sailing yachts to power cruising. As a lifelong boater, she found Kadey-Krogen Yachts to be the obvious choice to continue her career in sales. Sarah is passionate about the water whether it be sailing or under power, and she was drawn to the seaworthiness and the “at home” feeling aboard Kadey-Krogen Yachts.
As an avid sailor and racer, Sarah grew up summer sailing in Rhode Island and spent 4 years racing at Hobart & William Smith Colleges competing with the sailing team.
Her collegiate experience led her to work in the marine industry after college, and spurred her to continue her racing career.
Equally passionate about travel as she is boating, Sarah loves that regattas and her work experience has encouraged her to travel far and wide.
She developed her sales background by working with renowned sailboat and powerboat manufacturers.
She looks forward to integrating with the Kadey-Krogen community, and especially watching the product line of Summit Motoryachts grow.
Having lived on the West Coast and in the mid-Atlantic, Sarah has spent most of her adult life on the shores of Narragansett Bay in Newport, Rhode Island. She enjoys cruising the Elizabeth Islands with her husband and son on their 31-foot sailboat.
Committed to customers who purchase a new yacht or brokerage boat from Kadey-Krogen or Summit MotorYachts.

Katie Dixon Astras holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in textile design from the University of Georgia and an interior design degree from Indian River State University.
She began her career in the late 1990’s as a designer with Palmer Johnson Yachts at their facility in Savannah, Georgia. During her time at Palmer Johnson, she gained extensive knowledge in every aspect of marine interiors. They specialized in Megayacht refits, but also had a small yacht division where Katie worked with builders & owner-operators to commission or refit their vessels. This was when Katie first met the Kadey Krogen team. Katie managed Palmer Johnson’s in-house upholstery workroom and worked with various subcontractors to bring the boatowner’s vision to life.
After her time at Palmer Johnson, Katie moved to Florida with Hinkley Yachts and worked for them until starting her family. Once her kids reached school age, Katie joined the Patty Downing Interiors team a decade ago. She continued to focus on yacht interiors, subcontracting her services to many yacht builders and boatyards in the area including the Kadey-Krogen Group. She has helped many KKY Group new build and brokerage clients over the years. Katie has developed strong relationships with local vendors and craftspeople (carpet installers, window treatment fabricators and canvas shops) allowing her to provide the most current materials and get jobs completed in the tight time frames required in the marine environment.
Katie’s extensive background in interior specifications, applications, and construction practices alongside her ‘team player’ attitude make her a collaborative addition to any project. She believes beautiful interior spaces are created through open dialog and a personalized approach to defining a client’s taste and lifestyle needs.
