First Kadey-Krogen 58-foot extended-bridge yacht under construction

For the 2016 model year, Kadey-Krogen Yachts is introducing the Krogen 58-foot EB (Extended Bridge) to give customers an open-air experience while underway.

“The Krogen 58 has always been a beautiful home or home away from home for her owners,” company vice president Larry Polster said in a statement.

“Now, building upon her most popular outdoor entertainment spaces with an extended flybridge, with more seating than ever before, plus the possibility of a hardtop over a summer kitchen, including a propane BBQ grill, refrigerator, wet bar and more storage, we are thrilled to make the multi-time TrawlerFest Best in Show winner even more appealing,” he said.

The differences built into the new Krogen 58-foot EB include a large covered aft deck for dining and socializing and increased outdoor space on top. The first 58 EB is under construction.

“Rose and I had been looking for our next ocean-capable vessel for well over a year and looked at many of the best out there. While we always had the Kadey-Krogen 58 on our short list, the Extended Bridge version really made the final decision for us quite easy,” said Fred Shaheen.

“The newly expanded flybridge is on a par with, or better, than any similarly sized yacht, and the pilothouse — our favorite place on our current trawler — was made even more attractive with the inclusion of a day head and captain’s berth. We are elated to be the first owners of the Krogen 58 EB.”
