|The Krogen 55' Expedition, sets a new standard for long-range full displacement trawler yachts offering rugged globetrotting capability and technologically advanced construction features, plus new exterior styling with a handsome sheer and a graceful raked bow. Innovative interpretations of Kadey-Krogen's home-like comfort and highly sociable interior spaces highlight this all-new design; the living area is nearly 25 percent larger than that of other comparably sized vessels.
The Krogen 55' is an expedition-style globetrotter with a range of well over 3000 miles at 8 knots, or the equivalent of nonstop from Annapolis to Antigua at 9 knots. She has an ample fuel capacity of 1800 gallons. Sure and steady twin John Deere 6068TFM75 Tier II M1 rated engines power her, each achieving 158HP. To support this propulsion, the underbody features twin counter-faired skegs--a Kadey-Krogen innovation for maximum efficiency.
The balance of form and function in the Krogen 55' Expedition is evident as soon as you board. Characteristic of all Kadey-Krogen yachts, a roomy, comfortable and highly functional pilothouse serves as navigation area and living space. There is the fully covered aft deck or "back porch" from which to enjoy your surroundings whether you're entertaining guests, reading a book, or enjoying a snooze. Forward from the aft deck through welded aluminum weather-tight doors is the saloon or, more aptly, "the living room" as this space is a quarter larger than that of other comparably sized vessels. The portside galley remains amidships, directly adjacent to the saloon, so those who are prepping and cooking are still a part of the conversation. This galley is particularly well appointed with top-of-the-line appliances including a Viking 4 burner propane stove and oven, Jennair refrigerator/ freezer, GE dishwasher and more.
Moving below and forward, the interior space of the 55' Expedition allows both two-cabin and three-cabin arrangement options. Each features the master stateroom forward to take advantage of natural light and fresh breezes. The master has a full head en suite that includes a spacious shower stall. A second head is opposite the starboard stateroom(s). Those familiar with Kadey-Krogen will recognize the natural flow and comfortable look and feel of the living quarters, as the 55' Expedition reflects the experience that only can be gained in 30 years of building liveaboard passagemaking trawler yachts.

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.
