The event is for people who are starting to search for a cruising powerboat, as well as cruisers who are interested in becoming more familiar with Kadey-Krogen’s range of trawler yachts.

“The open house follows the first boat shows of 2012 and is an ideal opportunity for interested customers to spend more time on board without the crowds of a boat show,” the company said in a statement.

Kadey-Krogen expects to feature a range of its models, including its newest, the Krogen 52-footer, at the open house. Kadey-Krogen builds trawler yachts from 39 to 58 feet and operates a full-service brokerage.
