Changing places

David Glasco joined Kadey-Krogen Yachts as a naval architect. Glasco comes to Kadey-Krogen by way of Valiant Yachts and most recently from Tom Fexas Yacht Design, where he was project manager for the new Krogen 55-foot Expedition trawler yacht. He joins staff naval architect Jimmy Krogen at the company's headquarters in Stuart, Fla.


A Kansas native, Glasco is a 1995 graduate of the naval architecture and marine engineering program at the University of Michigan. In addition to his design credentials, he brings hands-on construction experience gained during an internship with Westport Shipyard in Washington. 

“Dave augments Jimmy Krogen's design skills with his own years of custom design and build experience,” said Tom Button, a partner with the yacht firm, in a statement. “He brings a fresh perspective that will help us develop new models as well as integrate developing methods into the current product line to carry on our commitment to quality, technology and engineering.”

Kadey-Krogen Yachts builds five models of Pure Full Displacement trawler yachts: the Krogen 39, Krogen 44, Krogen 48, the latest model Krogen 55 Expedition, and the Krogen 58.
