The Kadey-Krogen 48 AE (the AE stands for Advanced Ergonomics) debuted in Ft. Lauderdale last fall, and took home
the “People’s Choice” award from Trawler
Fest visitors. Unlike some of the smaller boats
in this roundup, the Kadey-Krogen is a true
full-displacement boat, capable of maintaining
nine knots, pushed by her 201-hp John Deere
diesel, for nearly 1,400 nautical miles. Slow
down to seven knots, and that range doubles
to more than 3,000 nautical miles.
Taking ideas from owners of the existing
48-foot model, the North Sea, Kadey-Krogen
added features to enhance the liveaboard
experience in the AE, including expanding the
galley, deeper and wider steps to the pilothouse, and molded stairs to the flybridge. The
galley also features full-sized appliances, and
a floor-to-ceiling pantry, while the pilothouse
now features side-by-side helm chairs.
Kadey-Krogen is bringing similar thinking to
the new 44-foot AE, just announced. It should
debut in 2013. www.KadeyKrogen.com
