With new projects on the drawing board and the sales ticker counting higher, 2014 was bound to be a milestone year. Earlier this month, we were happy to announce to the press our 600th new boat sale, a Krogen 44’ AE, to two first-time Kadey-Krogen buyers. We also thank and congratulate Greg Kaufman, Kadey-Krogen Yachts sales executive, who produced this record sale.
“Who would have thought that when the late naval architect and designer James S. Krogen doodled the first version of a Krogen 42’ on a napkin for Art Kadey, it would result in Kadey-Krogen Yachts that would sell 600 yachts? While 600 is just a number, this achievement is perhaps a timely reminder for us during this holiday season to be thankful for the founding partnership and Jim’s timeless design,” said Larry Polster, partner, Kadey-Krogen Yachts. “Jim was a master of merging the tried and true with fresh, innovative concepts, creature comforts and convenience, and we continue to maintain his values.”
Production is underway at Asia Harbor Yacht Builders in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, and delivery is slated for fall 2015. Stay tuned for more production updates.
