New Krogen 55' Expedition Trawler yacht

Has anybody seen this vessel, or know anything about it... particularly the asking price?* Was at the Solomon's TF?

Nobody has seen it yet.* It hasn't been built.* Krogen had a talk about it at the Rendezvous in Solomon's Is. in October.* They are presently*tooling the molds.* Don't know about the price.

RE: New Krogen 55' Expedition Trawler yacht

I've had some high level discussions with Krogen on this boat since I opened this thread, and it's just not my cup of tea.* It has* a very shallow draft for a boat it's size, less than 5' of headroom in the engine room and no walkaround decks.

For $1.895M (the same price as the K58), plus extras/options, I'll pass.* I can get into a new, fully equipped N55 for less than $1.7M.

I've got pdfs and tifs of the line drawings, if anybody is interested.* Can't upload these file types here, so PM me a valid email and I'll send.

*I have a Whaleback and from what I have seen this is a updated and stretched WB.* The no walk around design works very well for us and is actually convenient for docking since all lines are handled on one deck.* The improvements are a stretched and sharpened bow which is my biggest objection to my WB.* This finer entry will make the performance into a head sea much better.

I think that just like the 44 Krogen was an update to the 42 this model lets the builder sell a 'new' design and not compete against the used WB on the market.* You can buy a recent WB for 7-800K easy so spending 3 times that for a new boat would be a strectch for me.

But if you want a an 'expedition' vessel rather than a coastal trawler then this looks pretty good to me.
