Don't let your dreams go unfufilled for another minute.  Find out firsthand why the Whaleback is such a popular Krogen model.

Full Specifications

Master Stateroom

The master stateroom is forward and features a centerline queen berth  flanked by two seats. With the master forward, the result is a huge cabin without the noise of hull slap since Krogens do not have lifting chines on their hulls to catch waves.  This makes for restful nights on the hook. There are large drawers at the foot of the berth and full storage beneath. Storage is completed with two large hanging lockers and two dressers with drawers.  Four opening ports and two over head hatches provide light and ventilation.

Ensuite Head

The ensuite head features a separate shower stall with teak grate and a Jabsco head. There is also a linen closet and medicine cabinet. The floor is tiled and there is an opening port that allows for natural light and ventialtion.

Guest Staterooms

There are guest staterooms port and starboard. The port side stateroom has a double bed, brass reading lights and large storage drawers underneath.  There is a hanging locker and large desk with book shelves above.  A very large opening window and port allow for natural light and plenty of ventilation.

The starboard stateroom features a setee with storage drawers underneath that converts to a bed.  Above it is a Pullman berth.  There is also a hanging locker, desk, bookshelves and an opening port.

Guest Head

The guest head is to starboard and has a Raritan electric head (new 2016), separate stall shower w/ teak grate, a medicine cabinet as well as a seperate large locker.  There is one opening port for light and ventilation and the floor is tiled.  Just outside the head and just off the passageway is a GE spacemaker over/under washer dryer.


The large ship sized pilothouse is surrounded by windows that provide a 360 degree view for captain, crew and guests. A large L-shaped settee with high/low table easily converts to a double berth. The pilothouse is complete with a wet bar with generous storage below. The pilothouse is the perfect place to gather while underway or at anchor.
