- IN THE TIDES OF TIME the venerable trawler
was the hallmark of strength, stamina and master
craftsmanship. She could look a storm square in the
eye. And not blink. She would spend months at sea
working tirelessly sunup to first moon without
faltering. She'd obligingly respond to her skipper,
safeguard her crew and with prow held high at voyage
end, cruise proudly into port.
- TRADITION MEETS TOMORROW With salty
intuition and boundless imagination naval architect,
James S. Krogen designs the legendary trawler into the
21st Century. In the Krogen 42', Krogen again proves
his mastery of merging tried and true seaworthiness
with sophisticated liveaboard ease. Disciplined to the
stringent demands of commercial design, Krogen adheres
to the same tough criteria for his pleasure craft.
There is no waste. No superficiality. Simply a yacht
without peer in character, in value, indefinitely.
- THE KROGEN 42' is a dauntless trawler yacht
with an insatiable wanderlust and incomparable
comfort. You can cruise to the Caribbean, head North
to Anchorage, ship off to the South China Sea or
venture across the Atlantic. With a cruising range
over 3,000 nautical miles plus prodigious stowage
space, all ports are possible in a Krogen 42'.
- LOGICALLY INNOVATIVE Experienced yachtsmen
will readily recognize the thoughtful design nuances
and distinct singularity that separates Krogen 42'
from the typical trawler yacht. With her ballasted,
full-keeled displacement hull, The 42' assures an
excellent range of stability. She's self-righting at
over 85ø and tracking is dead-on, even in
following seas. The 42' is "form stabilized" to
effectively resist roll. And the fine entry of the
hull eliminates pounding to give a softer, and far
less tiring voyage.
- The rounded transom rises out of the water for
minimum drag, maximum efficiency and impressive fuel
economy. With outstanding ease of steering and
maneuverability, the Krogen 42' let's you cruise where
you choose confidentially and serenely in non-stop
- MIGHT DONE RIGHT THE Krogen 42' disguises
her all-weather muscle with enduring style and a
generous spirit. There's a wealth of accessible great
outdoors to stroll or privatize. The teak aft deck
offers coffee al fresco or a picnic for two. On to the
foredeck. Stretch out for some suntime or grab hold to
the heavy duty hand rail to greet the sea head on.
Step up in the world to the expansive non-skid boat
deck off the flying bridge. Space is plentiful for a
dinghy, cross-country bikes and deck chairs. Or drop
anchor, beam in some music, and dance under the stars.
The full parameter is secured with strong, stainless
steel railing. Topping off the boat deck is a Krogen
trawler constant: an effficient mast and loading boom.
- 40,000 LBS OF VALUE The 42' enhances the
Kadey-Krogen tradition of quality with meticulous
craftsmanship and state-of-the-art materials. The full
displacement hull is solid hand-laid fiberglass below
the water line with sandwich construction topsides,
superstructure and deck. The proficient core
effectively insulates against sound, adverse
temperature and condensation. All exterior fittings
are quality stainless and teak is kept to a judicious
minimum for laudably low maintenance.
