REVIEW: Boats.com 2004

Kadey Krogen Yachts was founded in 1977 by naval architect Jim Krogen and yacht broker Art Kadey. The trawlers are full displacement boats, economical, capable to cross oceans. The boats are built in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Boats are built to order from Krogen 39 to Krogen 58.

Thoughts:
I think this is it “the one,”  the realistic one. It fits into a 14m berth at a marina. But really how many 14m berths are there? They jump from 12m to 15m berths. The Kadey Krogen 44AE fits into the next size up of 15m berth.
There is one less stateroom than the Kadey Krogen 44AE
2019:
One stateroom with ensuite bathroom, access to engine room
Engine room, standing room
Bowthruster
Optional: NIAD stabliser or Wismar stabliser
Comfortable for a couple.
Writing area in pilot house or at dining table in Saloon
Great elevated visibility from pilothouse
GOOD GALLEY LAYOUT
DISPLACEMENT HULL
SMALL SINGLE ENGINE
ECONOMICAL
SLOW MOVING TRAWLER
Kadey Krogen trawlers hold their value

CONS:
Doesn’t fit into a 12m berth
Kadey Krogen trawlers hold their value
closed-cell PVC sandwich core above the waterline
One engine
