Go the Distance with the Krogen 52

  • Single or twin engines
  • 2 or 3 stateroom layout options
  • Passage-focused pilothouse with settee/watch berth
  • Ocean-crossing capable
  • High bulwarks on side deck and cockpit
  • Side door in galley allows for superior ventilation and ease of provisioning

The Krogen 52 epitomizes the true essence of every Krogen built since 1977: an all-oceans-capable trawler yacht with incredible liveaboard accommodations for a couple or family. This is combined with a level of craftsmanship and attention to detail that only a handful of boatbuilders achieve. The machinery and components we employ on the 52, and indeed every Krogen model, reflect our deep understanding that the open ocean is no place for inferior products. Highlights include John Deere engines, Northern Lights generators, ABT TRAC thrusters and stabilizers, ESI fuel-polishing systems and U.S. manufactured Cook gelcoat. All of these elements will ensure your Krogen 52 will take you the distance.


Kadey-Krogen Yachts offers well-thought-out accommodations plans to tailor fit your cruising ambitions and family lifestyle. The flow from the covered aft deck, into the saloon and galley area creates an incredible amount of usable space. One mandatory element on any liveaboard passagemaker is the creation of distinct social and lounging areas to allow the crew to spread out and be apart while on passage. While the aft deck provides a perfect area to dive into the stack of books that has grown, the pilothouse settee and table could be mistaken for another main saloon area. Then a few decks down you’ll find the open office area, a trademark design feature going back to the original Krogen 42. On the 52, this area can also be converted into a third stateroom. The flybridge provides an additional social and relaxation area to spread out while headed over the horizon.

Krogen 52 Design & Engineering

A sound bluewater cruiser such as the Krogen 52 is often a sum of its parts. It’s not just one aspect or detail that makes a boat a truly successful all-ocean passagemaker, but every single element from mechanical system layout, hull design, use of interior space, and construction. Kadey-Krogen Yachts is specifically organized to ensure each and every model incorporates our decades of experience. Our project managers and in-house design and engineering staff will work with each customer to ensure their Krogen suits their specific needs, yet all of the foundational elements are already in place.

For example, the entire Krogen 52 is built from only three molded pieces for maximized structural integrity. There are no additional secondary bonds or caulk joints that can inevitably cause issues. All deck and superstructures are cored and vacuum-bagged to maximize strength while minimizing weight.

Engine Room Layout

The Krogen 52’s engine room is set between forward and aft watertight doors. All systems are easy to service in a clutter-free, well-lit environment. These are key elements to keep a long-distance passagemaker in tip-top shape.

On Deck Systems

No matter if you’re searching for a secluded anchorage off the Inside Passage, seeking shelter from a Caribbean storm, or just extending your time on the hook—well-designed, tough ground tackle is mandatory on any bluewater trawler.
