Our team is passionate about finding you the yacht of your dreams. We look forward to hearing from you.
The Krogen 58 EB is the embodiment of beauty and function. Comfortable, capable, safe and sure, her Pure Full Displacement hullform and superior-quality materials and systems result in an unrivaled passagemaker in this size range. While many builders today focus on building much larger yachts in the 70-foot-plus market, Kadey-Krogen Yachts has made the deliberate business decision to concentrate its decades of experience on significant passagemakers like the 58. As a result, our customers will find a bluewater cruiser easily piloted and handled by two people without the need for additional crew. Yet the yacht is set up to accommodate a large family ready to go off the beaten path. Are you ready to start your journey?
Designing a yacht intended to explore the world’s oceans is no easy feat. Every seasoned yachtsman will eventually be told that “all boats are a compromise.” At Kadey-Krogen, we view that opinion as simply giving up and not trying hard enough. For more than 45 years we have proven that it is possible to have an efficient hull design, extreme comfort while under passage and in port, all with a design that is pleasing to the eye. Coupling all of these elements together is certainly not easy, especially when you choose to build each and every 58 without compromise.
Like all Kadey-Krogen models, the 58 seamlessly blends design, systems, and comforts. And we don’t see these as autonomous endeavors. For example, on a passagemaker it is preferred that the living quarters that will see significant use while on passage are concentrated in the most comfortable portion of the boat should heavy weather be encountered. Note the location of the 58’s pilothouse and galley area. This also benefits the design and weight distribution allowing an easy motion into a head sea. The deep forefoot and rounded entry of the 58 ensure there is no pounding at all. It’s a soft, easy entry into even large seas.
Furthermore, the weight distribution complemented by the underbody shape eliminates any tendency for the Krogen 58 to produce any type of pitching motion. A better and easier motion through the seas not only means a less tired crew, but it also results in a more efficient passage.

Even for the highly experienced cruiser, docking after a long passage in an unfamiliar area and, with the challenges of elements such as wind and current, can be a little stressful. Kadey-Krogen understands this and provides two wing stations on the Portuguese bridge, giving the helmsman optimal lines of sight while putting him in the ideal spot to assist with lines.
How a passagemaker is bunkered is often an afterthought for many builders. Some simply settle for placing a fill fitting on deck with a few screws and that’s it. However, Kadey-Krogen considers how we can make the process easier for the owner operator, while ensuring any harm to the marine environment is eliminated and the yacht’s system integrity is not compromised.
