ANKERS AWAY is perfect example of a Kadey Krogen Classic Walkaround. She is the most popular 2-cabin / 2-head layout with proven livability.  After 12 years of living aboard and cruising most of the year, her owners are eager to retire to life ashore and cruise local waters on a smaller vessel.  ANKERS AWAY has had the best of care with constant maintenance, frequent upgrades and regular use. She is very well equipped with Stabilizers, Hydraulic Bow Thruster, Water Maker, Dinghy Davit, Enclosure and much more. If you are searching for an excellent value in a super comfortable, ocean capable, long range cruiser, ANKERS AWAY is a must see! Annual maintenance haul out with fresh bottom paint & wax just completed this April. Owners will deliver to East Coast location.

This is absolutely the best value available in a KKY 48'!  Join the KKY family - arrange a showing today!
