The Krogen 44 AE Epitomizes Best in Class Trawler Yacht

  • 3,000 mile-range @ 7 knots
  • Proven John Deere power
  • Queen berth in master
  • Den converts to guest stateroom
  • Pilothouse ready for long passages
  • Fully equipped galley

Whether you are an inland or coastal cruiser, or have a dream to see the world, the Krogen 44 AE is an ideal platform for the journey. While many builders are abandoning yachts under 50 feet, Kadey-Krogen strongly believes that focusing on the owner-operator niche will yield the ultimate passagemaker. In fact, with the introduction of the Krogen 42 in 1977, Kadey-Krogen Yachts pioneered the full displacement trawler yacht. Today, the Krogen 44 AE has perfected this concept. She is a great sea boat and a proven transoceanic voyager. Just as important, thanks to her layout and advanced ergonomics, she offers live-aboard ease and comfort that is simply unparalleled.


Being easier to handle and maintain are qualities that every ocean trawler yacht should offer, but few actually deliver these attributes along with the comfort of home. The Krogen 44 AE offers superior fuel efficiency, stalwart construction techniques and advanced ergonomics that our customers have come to expect from Kadey-Krogen Yachts.

Krogen 44 Design & Engineering

When a company focuses on one thing for nearly 50 years, and focuses on doing that extremely well, chances are it gets really good at it. That’s the case with Kadey-Krogen. Since day one, we set out to create the best trawler in the world. In order to achieve these lofty expectations, we adhere to rigid design and engineering specifications, and ensure we constantly perfect and evolve these standards.

Every Kadey-Krogen yacht starts with the exclusive Pure Full Displacement™ hull form—a masterpiece design originally created by James S. Krogen. This form has ideal displacement-to-length ratios, a fine entry, and characteristic end-to-end symmetry—and never compromises strength. Additional attributes include:

  • Only three molds used to create stronger structure
  • Deep forefoot and high-aspect keel
  • Kevlar reinforced collision bulkhead
  • Large 3+ inch rubrail
  • Corecell, closed cell PVC sandwich core used in topsides maximizes strength while reducing weight
  • Well protected propeller behind keel and protective shoe

Krogen Details
Highly polished welds

Kadey-Krogen’s fully integrated manufacturing process ensures the builder has complete quality control for every Krogen 44. These highly-polished welds on the stainless steel are just one example of our attention to detail.


The Krogen 44’s voluminous, displacement hull design allows for a tremendous amount of stowage for the cruiser, thoughtfully equipped. Note the double gas-assist struts on the lazarette hatch in the cockpit.
