Kadey-Krogen yesterday released more details of its newest trawler, the Krogen 52′, which we first reported on here. It’s decidedly a classic Krogen trawler, with its raised pilothouse and 3,000 nm range at about 7 knots. It shares many of the features of its bigger sister, the Krogen 58′.
The main-deck galley is “Iron Chef”-equipped (my term) with a full-size Jennair fridge and a Viking range. It also has a weather-tight Dutch door with direct access to the starboard walkway. The stairs up to the pilothouse are on the portside and feature household-standard size risers and treads. The pilothouse on the 52′ accommodates dual helm chairs.
The yacht offers either a two- or three-cabin arrangement, with the master stateroom forward or amidships. Kadey-Krogen says those opting for a two-cabin arrangement will enjoy the utility of a large, dedicated office space. Both configurations include two heads with enclosed stall shower.
The company says the boat is being offered in both single- and twin-engine configurations. The hull design will feature Kadey-Krogen’s counter-faired keel, pioneered on the Krogen 58′, which imparts a counter-rotation to water flowing into the propeller, canceling some of the propeller-induced water rotation and resulting in straighter water outflow and improved forward thrust, which implies better fuel economy than that of conventional keel designs, according to Kadey-Krogen.
In the specs table below you can see that the engine options are from John Deere, with the single 6068AFM75 offering a continuous duty (M1) rating of 231 hp. The company said tooling will be complete by late fall this year and first delivery is planned for summer 2011. The companysays it took a “more grassroots approach and contacted current owners to see if they were interested in the project,” says Larry Polster, vice president of Kadey-Krogen Yachts. “We also took a set of plans to Trawler Fest in Fort Lauderdale and within ten days of initial exposure, the first five hulls were reserved.”
