Kadey-Krogen 58

 
 

     The Krogen 58' is a passagemaker aimed at boaters who truly enjoy the voyage as much as the destination.
     Powered with twin 154-hp John Deere 6068TFM diesel inboards, she claims a range of nearly 3,300 NM at 7 knots with her 1,760-gallon fuel capacity. At 10 knots, the 58 is said to make 1,280 NM. These numbers also take into consideration a 100-gallon reserve and one-gallon-per-hour usage for the standard 20-kW Northern Lights genset.
     The 58's hull is solid fiberglass below the waterline and is reinforced with Kevlar on the bottom of the stern. To enhance stability, Kadey-Krogen added 7,000 pounds of encapsulated lead ballast, but her superstructure is lightweight with Knytex and end-grain balsa and Divinycell cores.
     The same detail that went into her hull construction is apparent in the 58's cherry cabinetry and walls. Cherry is also used in a parquet pattern for the sole.
     Long-range cruisers can voyage in comfort, as the 58' offers a three-stateroom, two-head arrangement, with the forward master featuring a queen-size berth.
