Welcome aboard Krogen 42 KALLISTA.

The Krogen 42 is the original raised pilot house trawler design that started the legacy of Kadey-Krogen Yachts.   And while the 42 has become a timeless design in the history of trawlers, you may also have heard that no 42 is like the other.  Kallista is no exception.  In fact, she is one of nice 42s that come on the market where the owner has invested time, engineering and money over the course of ownership, and in preparation for sale, to make her a structurally strong and mechanically upgraded for her vintage.  She is for those buyers getting ready cruise, not refit.   

If you are looking for a trawler with good "bones", one that safe and comfortable, one that you can have confidence in to support your cruising goals, then take a look at Kallista.   

Note: Engine room preview video included. 

Serious inquires only.  Showings are done with advance notice and by appointment only. 

Full Specifications

Construction & Decks

Hull is fiberglass sandwich construction using closed-cell PVC foam core. Closed-cell PVC foam does not deteriorate or absorb water. Fiberglass schedule uses heavy hand lay-up mat and roving. The composite structure serves both as a buoyancy material and shock, sound and temperature insulator. It rides quiet, increases impact strength and eliminates condensation build-up inside the hull.  Decks and superstructure are fiberglass sandwich construction. 


When purchased in 2007 the bottom was reconditioned with three layers of new fiberglass with West System epoxy.  All below the water line through-hull / sea cocks were replaced at that time with solid fiberglass coring.  A vinyl-ester barrier was added to prevent blisters.  Additionally, Kallista has been hauled each winter ensuring a dry hull.


Main decks are fiberglass with the exception of the lazarette area where the teak was reconditioned by Phipps Boat Works in 2009.  The decks were re-painted at that time with Aulgrip to match the colors of more modern Krogens.  All scuppers were rebuilt using solid fiberglass inserts manufactured by Osprey Marine Composites.   


The upper boat deck was completely refurbished in 2010 by Osprey Marine.  This included re-coring about 2/3 of the boat deck with closed-cell PVC foam core.  Three of the four fashion plates have been rebuilt, reglassed and painted with Aulgrip


More recent (2018) cosmetic work included significant Aulgrip painting of the main deck inboard strakes, boat deck access combing, and areas on the boat deck. The lifeline stanchions were rebedded on solid fiberglass blocks for additional strength.


The saloon is entered through double doors from the covered aft deck. There is a standalone sofa on the portside and two chairs.  To port there is a Flexsteel Magic Sofa that makes into a double sleeper for guests.  Forward to port across from the galley is a bookcase.  A Sony Flat Screen TV is mounted on a swivel base in the aft port corner of the saloon.


The galley has been updated since original build.  A nice amount of storage in cabinets, drawers and overhead cabinets. There is a Force 10 propane 3 burner range (new in 2015) with oven and broiler, double stainless steel sink and updated laminate counter tops (2015.) Custom-made tile from Portugal lines the backsplash.  The galley includes a microwave oven.  The galley highlight is the brand-new Sea-Frost refrigeration and freezer units with separate electronic controllers (new in 2019.)

Master Stateroom

Four steps down and forward is the master stateroom. There is a double berth on the starboard side, a large double hanging locker and dresser on the portside and drawer storage under the berth.  A steel small arms locker / safe box is located in the hanging locker.  A flat screen TV is on the forward wall.

Guest Stateroom

The guest stateroom is arranged as an office with a deck and a settee which can be used as a single berth. There is an additional Pullman style single berth on the forward bulkhead. A bookcase, hanging locker and drawers complete the storage space.

Heads (2)

The port side has a Raritan Atlantis Freedom (2013) electric freshwater head and a separate shower stall. Owners stateroom has shower and raw water head.  The septic system was completely rebuilt at the same time with new hoses, holding tank level indicator in master stateroom, Sweet Tank aerator, and tank cleanout port and Whale overboard macerator pump.  An over-sized vent line hose was also added. 


Four steps up from the saloon/galley is the raised pilothouse providing a completely separate helm station from the rest of the boat. Aft of the helmsman is a settee/pilot berth which converts to a double berth. There are port and starboard Dutch doors to the walkaround deck and foredeck.
