The Krogen 50 Open perfectly represents our company philosophy and dedicated focus. First it meets the first objective of delivering a comfortable and efficient long-range cruising yacht on our proven Pure Full Displacement hull form. Then it wipes the slate clean with a refreshing interior layout and use of space. The Open series draws inspiration from open-plan architecture. The pilothouse, galley, and saloon form one seamless space on the main deck, with a layout that invites entertainment and casual living on board. The main-deck interior is what sets the 50’ Open apart: The galley is located between the light-filled saloon and the pilothouse. Fit for a gourmet chef, the space is complete with a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, Viking range, abundant storage, and 16 linear feet of counter space.


The Krogen 50 Open is available with either an amidships master or an optional master-forward design. The amidships master arrangement has a retreat-like master stateroom that features an island queen berth, and an ensuite head with his-and-hers sinks, and a large walk-in shower. A spacious VIP cabin is situated forward and includes a deluxe queen berth and private head. A full-size washer and dryer and linen closet are conveniently located between the staterooms.

Krogen 50 Open Design & Engineering

A walk-in, stand-up engine room with an incredible six and a half feet of headroom houses either single or twin John Deer diesels and the industry’s finest systems and equipment. When experienced cruisers explore a Kadey-Krogen engine room, it’s often what they don’t see that makes as significant of an impression as what they do see. For one, we do not overload our designs with untried and unreliable equipment. To us, reliability and safety far outweigh experimenting with some new unproven piece of technology. Then everything is laid out for accessibility and ease of maintenance. If you’re able to machinery, chances are it will be better maintained.

The Krogen 50 Open benefits from the same attention to weight distribution and utilization on reducing weight while maximizing strength. Hull construction includes use of American-made, Cook gelcoat. Hand-laid Knytex fiberglass construction with Corecell closed-cell PVC sandwich core is utilized in the topsides. Below the waterline you’ll find solid fiberglass with blister-resistant vinylester resin utilized on the first two laminates, with aramid fiber/FRP reinforcements.

Fuel Polishing System

Not too many people would argue with the premise that clean, uncontaminated, water-free fuel is the key ingredient to a long-distance cruiser like the Krogen 50 Open. If not, all those contaminates can ultimately make their way into the secondary and primary fuel filters and starve the engine. This is why Kadey-Krogen employs fuel-polishing systems to clean the fuel before it hits the engines. Whether you are bunkering in Puerto Monte, Chile, or Newport, Rhode Island, this solution is a key component to any bluewater cruiser. 

Platform for Adventure

Don’t under estimate the value of a large tender for your cruising adventures. Whether it’s being used to load on provisions, or taking the family on an underwater excursion, you’ll appreciate as large of a tender as possible. Kadey Krogen recognizes this simple truth and ensures the 50 Open is equipped with the proper davit and space for the optimal tender solution.
