In 1993 Kadey-Krogen Yachts introduced the revolutionary Whaleback 48' featuring a full-beam saloon and, topside, a large central pilothouse. The Whaleback enjoyed a cult-like following particularly among long-distance voyagers, her interior accommodations being much more spacious than those of comparably-sized models and thus providing enhanced "liveability." In 2007 we launched the Krogen 55' Expedition project, combining the interior roominess and 360-degree pilothouse of the Whaleback with the greater length and pleasing lines of the Krogen 58'. Now we are pleased to introduce to you the 55' Expedition's big sister, the Krogen 64' Expedition.
From the keel up, the 64' Expedition is designed to be handled comfortably by two people, yet guests and/or crew can be accommodated with privacy for all as the 64' is available in two, three, or four-cabin versions with three or four heads.
The saloon of the 64' Expedition is located where every Kadey-Krogen saloon can be found: forward through the welded aluminum weather-tight doors off the fully covered aft deck. The portside galley remains amidships, directly adjacent to the saloon, so those who are prepping and cooking are still a part of the conversation. The galley is particularly well appointed with top-line stainless appliances including a four-burner Viking range, full-size JennAir refrigerator, a super-quiet Miele dishwasher, a microwave/convection oven, and trash compactor. As a first for Kadey-Krogen, there is a separate dining room starboard, opposite the galley.
Out of doors you will find a large walkway along the starboard side providing exterior access from the aft deck to the massive foredeck that is capable of handling a 17-foot tender. Note the 17' Boston Whaler on the foredeck in the rendering.
Like her little sister, the Krogen 55' Expedition, the 64' Expedition incorporates three keels. Each of the skegs to port and starboard is counter-faired, with the trailing end specially shaped to rotate the water flowing into the propeller in the opposite direction. This Krogen invention results in greater fuel efficiency than that found with other keel forms.
Only the finest materials have been specified for construction and outfitting. John Deere continuous duty rated engines are standard in an engine room that boasts more than six feet of headroom. Fuel polishing, oil exchange and fire suppression are standard. Other major systems such as stabilizers, hydraulic bow thruster and chilled-water air conditioning, are, yes, standard. Like all Kadey-Krogens, the hull is built using vinylester and isophthalic resins, knytex mats and US-made Cook® UV-protected gel coat to protect your investment.
Critical areas of the hull will be reinforced with a special impact-resistant fiberglass mat containing Twaron, the same fiber used to give body armor its "bullet-proof" capability. For those unfamiliar with Twaron, it is an aramid fiber (Kelvar is another aramid) that is five times stronger than steel and up to 60% lighter than ballistic steel. This strong yet light fiber helps maintain a moderate displacement-to-length ratio that is a signature of Kadey-Krogen engineering and again results in better fuel economy.
