Kadey-Krogen Yachts Splashes Twentieth Krogen 58′

Embarks on enhanced offering of semi-custom designs

For those of you whose nautical directions lean towards cruising here, there, and well, wherever, Kadey-Krogen, 36 years and 600+ builds later, is providing you with the ability to set off on yet another quest.

All customers have individual needs, and in keeping with the goal of continuing to be one of the most customer-responsive companies in yacht building, Kadey-Krogen Yachts announces the splash of a very singular Krogen 58′. The new trawler yacht, Destiny, is complete with a wish list of custom and semi-custom features to accommodate her owners who have extensive sailing, fishing and diving experience and who plan to cruise the Mediterranean this summer.

Destiny, Hull #20 is offloaded and delivered to her proud new owners.

Thanks to the prototypical livability of the interior and the superior capability and efficiency of the exclusive Pure Full Displacement (PFDTM) hull design, the handsome raised pilothouse design of the Krogen 58′ has become a real favorite especially among experienced yachtsmen. From the beginning, the Krogen 58′ has been available with many choices in special features–single or twin engines, and multiple stateroom and office arrangements–but the twentieth Krogen 58′, Destiny, brings a new level of one-to-one collaboration with customers to bring a dreamboat to fruition.

guest quarters to starboard, and a den/office/cabin arrangement to port. Among the special features aboard Destiny are a custom swim/fishing platform, livewell and extra freezers to accommodate the owners’ fishing interests, underwater lights adding ambiance for al fresco dining on the back porch, as well as plenty of extra fuel storage for the tender for more exploration off the beaten path. The vessel’s professional quality galley also has a customer-specific appointment. Up top, the radar arch is integrated with the hardtop that supports a mast containing dual radars and FLIR, adding to her all-weather capability. Universal power converters and a gangway complete the “go anywhere” features.

As will Destiny, Hull #2 is underway for ports on and off the beaten path.

Kadey-Krogen Introduces First Consumer iPad Application in the Cruising Powerboat/Trawler Market: A Travelogue Panorama and Information Source For the Trawler Lifestyle’s Best 

What’s the next best thing to making passage aboard a Kadey-Krogen trawler yacht? Now you can get a visual taste of the Kadey-Krogen lifestyle by scrolling through the travelogues, scenic photographs and glimpses of the adventures of Krogen owners to be found in the new, free iPad application available through the company’s website or via the Apple Store. Here’s a fun-to-use (and useful) lifestyle app that is “At Home on Any Sea.”

“There’s just something about swiping through pages in a dream ‘book’ like this iPad experience that sends the cruising spirit soaring, and is perfect for learning about and exploring living the Kadey-Krogen dream,” says Larry Polster, vice president of Kadey-Krogen Yachts. “We’ve captured many of the best stories by Krogen owners, their exotic destinations and chronicles in boating magazines, and put these together with the story of our history and how we build our trawlers. The app is created to tell these stories onshore, offshore or at 35,000 feet, with or without Internet connectivity. You can sit quietly wherever you are and absorb a lot of feeling, flavor and facts about Kadey-Krogens. This should really whet your cruising appetite!”

The new Krogen 52′ won the prestigious PassageMaker Magazine People’s Choice Award, 2012 Trawler Fest, Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The app is viewed through a combination of topical sections found along the bottom of the tablet page and vertical “chapters” seen along the side. Tapping a chapter photo and then swiping pages in each chapter reveals a new vista, captures a moment, or explains a precept of design and engineering. Included also is the storybook tale of the company’s founding and photographs of many world-class, breakthrough yacht designs Kadey-Krogen has created in its 35-year history. There are excerpts from the company’s magazine, Waypoints, and chapters detailing engineering philosophy that have captions in windows that expand and close at the tap of a finger. There are also technical explanations about the building process, specifications for and photographs of the current boat models, and links to more data at the company website.

The iPad app can be downloaded directly to your iPad either from, or at the Apple Store searching Kadey-Krogen Yachts. It can also be downloaded to any computer with iTunes installed that you will later use to synch your iTunes downloads to your iPad for actual use. Depending on your local bandwidth, the application takes from two to five minutes to download.
