With the introduction of the Krogen 42' almost 40 years ago, Kadey-Krogen Yachts pioneered the full displacement trawler yacht.

Today, the Krogen 44' has perfected the concept. This is a great sea boat, a proven transoceanic voyager and, just as important, thanks to her layout and advanced ergonomics she offers live-aboard ease and comfort that is simply unparalleled.

Wander Bear is an extremely well-kept example of the popular Krogen 44. Two attentive owners have made sure that she has all that she needs to look great and operate as expected, so she will be At Home on Any Sea.

Equipped with Active Fin Stabilizers, Hydronic heat, an excellent Navigational Electronics suite, Satellite TV and Bose Sound System, Steelhead Davit, full-size Asko Washer / Dryer, and a Real Queen bed, so you will be At Home on Any Sea!


Seller reports that Wander Bear has received, "a complete bottom sand and re-coat, the main drive prop and thruster wheels were stripped and coated with “speed prop”, and all zincs replaced. The house bank was updated with 4 new Lifeline AGM 255 AH batteries. The hull and top sides were restored removing all oxidation, then buffed and waxed with 3M Marine Carbona Wax. The stabilizers underwent a complete factory authorized service with shaft seal replacement, and stabilizer electronic system re-calibration. These were the intended updates. 

Unexpected wear was detected on the stern thruster bearings and the entire unit was sent back for a factory authorized rebuild replacing all internal parts with new factory warranty."

     - a Spare-No-Expense seller to be sure.


Krogens are renown for their highest-quality materials and build process.  Wander Bear's JUST REPAINTED hull and superstructure molds are high-grade female tooling.  Hull construction includes use of USA-made, Cook® gel coat.  Hand-laid Knytex® fiberglass construction with closed-cell PVC sandwich core used in topsides. Solid fiberglass below waterline with blister-resistant vinylester resin utilized on the first two laminates below the waterline.  Impact resistance is achieved with Aramid/FRP reinforced stem and stern bottom areas, the same material that is known as Kevlar.  A massive stringer system provides high strength and lower weight. Superstructure includes Knytex® surface mats for print-through reduction.  Marine-grade plywood bulkheads with molded fiberglass hat section stringers.

The well-kept teak deck rails have winter storage covers for maximum protection.  Boat and fore decks have a GripTex® non-skid finish.  Bulwark has molded plank lines with gel coat finish. Polyurethane formulate marine sealants are used at hull-to-deck and boat deck joints and exterior fittings. 


Enter the bright and cheery saloon from what is known by Krogenites as their "back porch", through a large aluminum welded door. To starboard is a dinette with a hi-low movable table, to port is an open concept with twin Ekornes chairs (the best!). Equipped with the optional back window, all windows open with protective screens. Opening the back door on to the totally protected cockpit makes for a far more comfortable living room experience when compared to similar sized yachts.  Even the lighting has been upgraded to LED!


The galley is forward of the saloon, and boasts the finest quality and convenience features.  There is abundant storage throughout, no need to scrimp on the food supply here! The counter space is comparable to much larger yachts.  Across from the galley is the library/bar area that offers even more space for storage!  There are large portlights in the galley and at the library/bar area.  Wander Bear's galley includes:

  • Dometic Tundra refrig/freezer
  • Force 10 propane stove/oven
  • Microwave/Convection oven
  • Ice Maker
  • Single deep stainless sink
  • Propane sniffer
  • Corian counter surfaces
  • Overhead lockers
Master Stateroom

The master stateroom is forward, providing superior light, headroom and ventilation provided by one Lewmar Ocean Series deck hatch, four opening portlights and two fixed portlights.  The master berth includes a comfortable truly queen-sized mattress, that lifts using gas struts to reveal a cavernous storage compartment, and has four large drawers at the foot. There are two huge hanging lockers and numerous storage compartments too.

Guest Stateroom

The guest stateroom is located on the starboard side, amidships and has the feel of a den rather than a guest quarters. There is large desk with a settee that when pulled out, makes into a very nice double berth. Additionally, a pullman berth on the forward bulkhead can be stowed when not in use. This stateroom comfortably sleeps three. There is a large hanging locker, and ventilation is provided by two opening portlights. 

To aft, there is an insulated & dogged engine room door, that provides easy access to the starboard side of the engine room.  There is also engine room access through the saloon sole.


The head has plenty of storage provided in the large medicine cabinet and lockers. A generous molded stall shower with a bi-fold glass door. The toilet is a fresh-water-flush, SeaLand VacuFlush unit. A Tankwatch II holding tank gauge is included. 


The raised pilothouse provides great sight lines and is only a few short steps up from the saloon on normal riser stairs, complete with banister.  There are built -in storage compartments in the steps as well as a book shelf over the steps.  Welded aluminum Dutch doors to port and starboard can be dogged-down  to create a watertight seal. The settee/ watch berth converts to a double bed for extra guests.  A teak high-low table provides the perfect work space for a laptop and who wouldn't want an office with a view?  The teak-armed Pompanette Helmsman chair affords the captain total comfort under way.  There are multiple cabinets, drawers and compartments providing plenty of storage.

This is a true working pilothouse!
