June 12-14, 2009, the Annapolis office of Kadey-Krogen Yachts held its annual Open House and, for the first time ever, the full fleet of Krogens lined the Port Annapolis docks. The event kicked off Friday morning with a media breakfast, a new element to the Open House, in which local media met for coffee, bagels, and an introduction to the Kadey-Krogen line as well as the turnkey Marine Maintenance System (MMS) by SeaKits that is standard on all new boats.
A steady stream of visitors boarded each of the boats all weekend including the Krogen 39i, Krogen 44', Krogen 48 North Sea, Krogen 55' Expedition and the Krogen 58i. Many folks lingered on the new 55i Expedition comparing her lines and interior design elements with those of her sisterships. Also on board the 55i was Barry Kallander, founder of SeaKits offering demonstrations of the MMS to anyone interested in seeing how Kadey-Krogens are equipped for easy maintenance and spare parts planning with the comprehensive system.
The Annapolis Kadey-Krogen team took turns taking guests out for sea trials on the 44i demonstrating the boatis comfortable ride, easy handling characteristics, and impressive turning radius. Fortunately, the weather held for the twice daily rides, but the calm seas of Chesapeake Bay didnit allow those on board to experience the boatis true seakeeping abilities.
From quality one-on-one time with prospective buyers to daily catered lunches with tasty brownies to getting caught up with owners who stopped by to say hello, the summer Open House in Annapolis was a celebration of the capability, liveability, value, and community that Kadey-Krogen yachts have to offer.
