Full Specifications

Hull construction includes use of USA-made Cook® gel coat.  Hand-laid Kyntex® fiberglass construction with closed-cell PVC sandwich core used in topsides.  Solid fiberglass below waterline with blister-resistant vinyl ester resin utilized on first two laminates below waterline.  Impact resistant aramid/FRP reinforced stem and stern bottom areas.  This is the same type of material that is known as Kevlar under a different brand.  The massive stringer system utilized by Krogen provides high strength but at a lower weight.

Superstructure includes Coracell closed cell foam core and Kyntex® surface mats for print-through reduction.

Teak aft and side decks.  Boat and fore decks have GripTex® non-skid finish.  Bulwark has molded plank lines with gel coat finish.

Marine-grade fiberglass covered plywood bulkheads with molded fiberglass hat section stringers.


The bright and airy saloon is entered through two weather tight welded aluminum doors with windows from the fully covered aft deck.  To starboard is a large L-shaped settee with custom Ultraleather fabric and a custom Release Marine cherry fold out dining/coffee table with a beautiful inlaid top and hi-low base. To port are two comfortable Ekornes leather recliners with matching foot stools and a high/low side table.  There are large opening windows to port and starboard and an opening window in the aft bulkhead all with screens, teak valances and curtains.  The saloon has stereo speakers installed in the overhead.  The cherry and spruce flooring adds a modern yet nautical touch.  For entertainment there is a 48" Samsung TV on a retractable Aritex electric lift so TV is hidden when down.  It is on the starboard side so perfect viewing from the comfortable Ekorness chairs.  There is also a Samsung Blue Ray/DVD player.

For access to the engine room there are multiple hatches in the saloon floor.  Day to day access for the engine room though is through the lift up stairs to the stateroom companionway.  This AE upgrade was a welcome improvement to provide more comfortable and convenient access to the engine room.  


The open faced U-shaped galley is forward of the saloon on the starboard side.  It's ergonomic arrangement makes it a pleasure to use and is fit for a professional chef. There is ample storage in multiple cabinets and drawers.   There is a screened opening port above the stove providing extra light and excellent ventilation while cooking.  The AE model upgrades have enlarged the space to provide for the professional Bluestar stove as well as the huge 19 cu ft refrigerator.

Guest Stateroom/Office

To starboard is the guest stateroom/office.  The layout is a custom layout providing two twin berths.  The Ultraleather settee becomes one and above and at a 90 degree angle is the other top bunk.  The top bunk is accessed by cherry steps up.  There is drawer storage under the one bunk and a locker under the top bunk.  Two screened opening ports provide natural light and ventilation for a very bright, open and airy feeling. 


The pilothouse is a short walk up from the saloon on a full-size staircase complete with banister.  There are built -in storage compartments in the steps as well as a book shelf over the steps.  Welded aluminum Dutch doors to port and starboard can be dogged-down in inclimate weather to create a watertight seal.  The Ultraleather watch berth converts to a double bed for extra guests.  A custom Release Marine cherry high-low table provides the perfect work space for a lap top and who wouldn't want an office with a view?   A beautiful custom Release Marine helm chair and foot rest affords the captain comfort under way.  There are multiple cabinets and compartments providing storage as well as storage in the steps up to the watch berth. Two overhead opening hatches provide great ventilation while underway or on the hook.
