Project: Kadey-Krogen 44 AE

Kadey-Krogen Yachts proudly announces a new model in the company's Advanced Ergonomics series, the Krogen 44 AE.  Building on and inspired by the success of the Krogen 48 AE which was introduced last year, the 44 AE is highlighted by a new galley layout and an even more generously sized flybridge.  The new Krogen 44 AE replaces the 44, which had 26 hulls launched.  The new 44 AE is a result of a collaborative effort between owners, prospective owners and the Kadey-Krogen in-house design team lead by naval architect Dave Glasco. There are more than fifty ergonomic and technical changes that differentiate the 44 AE from her predecessor. New, advanced ergonomic highlights include a full walk-thru cockpit boarding doors, walk-in engine room access, a companion seat next to the helm chair on the flybridge plus corner bench seating with a table perfect for entertaining, and the galley's repositioned starboard-side four-burner Viking range and an eighteen cubic foot refrigerator that opens to port for the chef's convenience. LED lighting and a new engine room ventilation system utilizing intake and exhaust axial fans headline a substantial list of technical upgrades.  Owners choose from several spacious guest stateroom layouts: a den/office arrangement, a dedicated queen berth suite, or "Jack and Jill" berths for the grand kids. Kadey-Krogen provides flexible options for the guest stateroom so owners may configure the space to best fit their lifestyle and cruising plans.
