|THE KROGEN 44.
With the introduction of the Krogen 42' in 1977, Kadey-Krogen Yachts pioneered the full displacement trawler yacht. The Krogen 44' perfected the concept. She's a great sea boat, a proven transoceanic voyager and, just as important, a comfortable liveaboard.
A look around her proves the point. The pilothouse is not only the command center, it is a focal point for conversation and site seeing for the whole crew and a living space doubling as a watch berth. The saloon is large enough for full-size chairs to really relax in and there is cushy L-shaped settee seating to starboard, not to mention that the room opens up to the "back porch" through a large weathertight door. Dining for as many as eight, and the galley is adjacent where two can work comfortably for meal preparation.
Whether you are a solo voyager or a couple with a dream to see the world, the Krogen 44' is an ideal platform for the journey.
If you follow Kadey-Krogen's news updates, you may recognize LE REVE. She crossed the Atlantic on her own bottom a few years ago and has been cruising Europe ever since. Adventures over, she is now being shipped back to Annapolis to be sold. LE REVE is extremely well equipped and has many custom features that make her a superb long range cruiser. Don't miss this opportunity to own a well set-up, proven ocean voyager!

Hull, deck and superstructure are all made from single piece female molds. Hull construction includes use of USA-made Cook gel-coat, Hand-laid Knytex fiberglass with close-cell PVC sandwich core used in topsides. The cored topsides and superstructure lower the center of gravity, provide increased rigidity and thermal insulation. Solid fiberglass below the waterline with blister resistant vinylester resin and Kevlar reinforcements for impact resistance. All cored areas are vacuum-bagged for a strong, light weight void-free laminate.

From the large fully-covered "Back Porch" Cockpit (where you will spend the bulk of your time), you enter through double aluminum water-tight doors with a built-in retractable screen. The Widebody Saloon features an "L" shaped Settee to starboard with comfortable reclining chair to port. Large opening and screened windows provide great sightlines and ventilation when seated in the Saloon. Just forward is the Galley with all the features needed to truly live-aboard.
A few steps down are the Guest Cabin to starboard with a convertible Settee, Desk and fold down Double Berth. The full head & shower are to port, then the washer & dryer and the Master Cabin forward with a true queen-sized centerline bed. All the Cabins have s/s opening ports and, in addition, the Master has an overhead hatch for excellent ventilation. The Krogen full-displacement hull form has no need for hard chines, this eliminates the annoying "wave slap" found in most power vessels.
A few steps up leads to a fantastic Pilothouse with an elevated, convertible Settee, comfortable helm chair with great visibility and aluminum water-tight Dutch doors on both sides.
With 16'4" of beam, the KKY 44' has a huge volume that is immediately felt as wide-open spaciousness throughout the entire vessel. Great sightlines from all seating positions and large opening windows complete the open feeling. Total living comfort is assured with 3-zone reverse-cycle Air Conditioning/Heat. However in addition, LE REVE has hot water radiant heat available throughout the vessel powered by the engine, generator, shore power or diesel furnace. Great for cruising northern latitudes or those cool evenings at anchor!
The Saloon is bright and airy virtue of large opening side windows and the optional opening aft bulkhead window. Being a Widebody model, the Saloon offers additional space to port for comfortable reading chairs. To starboard is an L-shaped settee with a high-low teak dining table. There are teak valances and draperies at each window, a Turkish rug and Ultra-leather upholstery.

As Kadey Krogen's representative to the Australian and New Zealand markets, I am able to offer much assistance with regard to organising pre-purchase survey inspections of the vessel, and can also assist in arranging insurance and shipping to Australia, should this be required. Please note that Kadey Krogens are more than capable of crossing the Pacific or Atlantic Oceans, having done so before.
Delivery will take place in the US, and prospective buyers should be aware that the cruising grounds in the US and Caribbean are amongst some of the finest in the World.
Kadey Krogen has four offices in the US and a very strong following amongst cruising owners, offering new owners advice and assistance.
