KROGEN 50 OPEN
Kadey-Krogen Yachts has been building trawlers that can cross oceans for more than 40 years, but the new Kadey Krogen 50 Open (LOA: 52′ 9″; Beam: 17′ 5″) is a Krogen you haven’t seen before. Not a modification of the longstanding 48s or popular 52, the 50′ Open expands the company’s offerings to those who desire a continuous layout from the salon to pilothouse. Forward of the salon and galley, the pilothouse is elevated by a single step and can be part of the social space or closed o with a partition during night time passages.
Below-decks is a two- or three-stateroom layout with the master either amidships or forward. Aft is a walk-in engine room with generous six-and-a-half feet of headroom. Power from either a single 231-hp or twin 125-hp John Deere engines push the full displacement hull to a top speed of 9.4 knots. At its cruising speed of 8 knots, the 50′ Open will go 2,100 nautical miles. Other highlights include port and starboard wing stations, a Portuguese bridge and a flybridge modeled after the new Krogen 58′ EB (extended bridge).
The first hull will be delivered this fall to Kadey-Krogen’s vice president, Larry Polster, and make her boat show debut in Miami in February 2018.
