Our team is passionate about finding you the yacht of your dreams. We look forward to hearing from you.
The proven Krogen 48 AE stands out as an unrivaled liveaboard yacht while retaining superior running characteristics, reliability, and exceptional seaworthiness and safety. We challenge you to find another bluewater-capable yacht under 50 feet that is as spacious, comfortable, and built to exacting standards as the Krogen 48 AE. Like each Kadey-Krogen built yacht, the 48 AE blends timeless and traditional design with the most recent technological advances and innovation. In the end, each 48 AE is representative of the owners’ taste and preference, complemented by our nearly five decades of boatbuilding experience. Where will your Krogen 48 take you?
Stop by any boat show or walk along a dock on a busy afternoon and inevitably the conversation turns to what defines a true bluewater cruiser versus a comfortable coastal cruiser. Just as there are a lot of boats out there, there are also a lot of opinions. Yet at Kadey-Krogen, we have long believed that a bluewater-worthy boat and a capable coastal cruiser do not have to be automonous endeavors. Like all Kadey-Krogen models, the Krogen 48 is designed and built to be both an all-oceans capable passagemaker with a range of more than 4,700 miles, as well one of the most comfortable trawler yachts in its class. With a Krogen, there is simply no reason to compromise.
The Krogen 48 represents nearly 50 years of evolutionary thinking and focus on building the best trawler yachts available. Thanks to nearly 75 deliveries to date, we have perfected each new 48 to ensure it benefits from our experienced owners, the latest technology and innovation, and our pledge to always strive for excellence.
Seasoned passagemakers appreciate the 48’s seakindly ride and the fine entry that slices through waves versus plowing through them, which consumes more energy. Plus the V-shaped after sections slice following seas rather than creating a surfing motion. This also translates to comfort and safety on board allowing you to arrive in port well-rested. And with less resistance and drag overall, Kadey-Krogen engineering results in better fuel economy. It’s that simple.

Kadey-Krogen’s emphasis on safety and redundancy is shown here with the emergency valve on the engine intake that allows the system to pump from the bilge if required.
We still believe in taking the time and making the effort that hand craftsmanship requires. Every stitch, stroke of a varnish brush, and chisel is at the hand of experienced craftsmen.
