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 4045AFM85 M1 rated engines power her, each achieving 160HP. 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 range, Jennair refrigerator, Miele 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.
