Construction and Design

Solid hand laid PPG combo mat fiberglass below the waterline with closed cell P.V.C. sandwich core used above the waterline, in the topsides. End grained balsa-cored superstructure, pilothouse and boat deck. Core mat is also used to reduce print-through. Vinylester resin used in first two laminates below the waterline. Marine plywood bulkheads. Mahogany stringers and frames.

Design features that give a Krogen outstanding sea handling, efficiency and economy include:

  • True full-displacement hull form for sea kindliness and comfort
  • Soft chines reduce snap-roll and eliminate wave-slap at rest. Hydraulic stabilization provides a smooth comfortable ride.
  • End-to-end symmetry contributes to the Krogen's extremely efficient hull form. Very little power is needed to push the vessel through the water and they have excellent directional stability in following seas.
  • Full keel with attached rudder protecting the running gear.
  • Dependable naturally aspirated Cat 3208 for long range and long life
  • A proper pilothouse with 360º visibility

The main saloon is huge, open and airy. Port, starboard and aft opening windows have teak valances and new Hunter Douglas custom window treatments. The double teak doors have have a Clear View retractable screen system. To starboard, there is an L-shaped settee with storage beneath & behind and a hi-lo folding leaf dining table.  The settee & table also converts to a very comfortable double berth. To port there is an L-shaped settee with storage beneath and two built-in side tables. There is a large flat screen Smart TV mounted on the forward bulkhead, and mounted lamps port and starboard.
