Kadey Krogen 48 North Sea Widebody
Start Auto SlideShow Full Screen PopUp
TRANQUILITY BASE is a beautiful 2006 model Krogen 48' North Sea Widebody that is in excellent condition and expertly equipped and maintained, reflecting the proud heritage of the trawler-inspired Kadey-Krogen fleet. TRANQUILITY BASE is hull number 33 of the 49 Krogen 48 North Sea boats built.

She is turn-key in every respect having just returned from a long term, long range East Coast Australia cruise.

Her tasteful decor and exceptional accomodations make her a perfect candidate to long range cruising and/or living aboard.

The current owner has replaced all incandescant light bulbs with LED bulbs, except for the engine room lights and spreader lights on the mast. The navigation computer has been replaced with a new laptop and new MaxSea software. A new Raymarine C125GPS chartplotter has been fitted on the flybridge. A new Force 10 gas stove and oven was fitted upon her arrival in Australia, to comply with Australian gas certification regulations with regard to flame-outs. The owner has also fitted a new 316 stainless steel trim to the flybridge windscreen, as well as a 240v/120v transformer for shore power use in Australia. New Sureflo deckwash pump recently fitted. A new 270 amp alternator has been fitted to the engine.

There is not enough room to list the vast quantity of spares that are included in the purchase price of TRANQUILITY BASE, but to list a few:
Reconditioned Balmar 270 Amp Alternator.
Brand new fresh water pump.
Brand New Raw water pump for main Engine.
Spare Fortress Anchor.

Safe to say, she is fully equipped and ready to depart to any destination of your choosing at a moment's notice.

TRANQUILITY BASE has all the components and systems you would expect on a proper passage maker, and all the necessities for luxurious and comfortable living.


The Krogen 48' North Sea was and is a masterpiece that so furthered the legacy of the groundbreaking Krogen 42' that she very often is the choice of retiring professional mariners, naval architects, experienced transoceanic voyagers and circumnavigators, and even those new to the cruising lifestyle. These owners know that the Krogen 48' North Sea is a ruggedly capable yet comfortably liveable trawler yacht that has logged countless voyages both to far-flung ports and those close to home.

If you encounter the Krogen 48' North Sea near your docks, strike up a conversation with the owner or crew. Chances are you'll find an interesting person with seagoing knowledge and experience, and great confidence and pride in this vessel. 49 examples of the Krogen 48' North Sea were built between 1995 - 2010. Her USCG documentation number is 1180294 with her original hailing port being Minneapolis, Minnesota. TRANQUILITY BASE was fully imported into Australia in 2014.

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 slipping and survey inspections of the vessel, and can also assist in arranging insurance. Please note that Kadey Krogens are more than capable of crossing the Pacific or Atlantic Oceans, having done so before.
