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.

Aquila is a highly sought after wide body version of the Kadey-Krogen 48'. Her two cabin layout makes her great for having guests but she is easily handled by just a couple. She has been impeccably maintained and upgraded by her current owner. She has cruised the East Coast extensively and is ready for her next adventure, wherever that may be.

Additional Information
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.
