Kadey-Krogen wins PassageMaker Magazine award


Kadey-Krogen Yachts received PassageMaker Magazine's People's Choice Award for its Krogen 55 Expedition at the recent Trawler Fest in Baltimore. This is the second time the Krogen 55 Expedition has received the award.


The People's Choice Award was presented on the docks at the Inner Harbor Marina on the final day of the event after more than 2,100 attendees had a chance to tour the trawlers and cruising powerboats on exhibit and vote for the best in show. With four boats in the show, Kadey-Krogen had the biggest display among the dozens of exhibitor boats at Trawler Fest.

"This was our first year holding Trawler Fest in Baltimore, and it was great to see a new crowd of boating enthusiasts out on the docks and to hear their comments as they stepped aboard the 55 Expedition. It's boats like this that get people thinking about what's possible," said PassageMaker Magazine publisher and general manager Rob Dorfmeyer.

The Krogen 55 Expedition will be on display Oct. 14-17 at the United States Powerboat Show in Annapolis, Md.
