Quite nice I agree, but the 52 is just so much better.
2015 Kadey-Krogen Yachts - Krogen 52' Power New and Used Boats for

Unfortunately the 52 is a relatively new model and not sure it is possible to find a pre-owned one just yet. I inspected one at time of release when they were priced at $1.2m to get some sales started. With their acceptance in the market, some cost escalation and a profit margin now added in they are well north of that 'promotion' pricing. Could take a while to get to the point where $1m is enough to get into a used one, but they are absolutely incredible.

Jim: She is a beauty! Lena and I hooked up with Tom and Phyllis at the end of March when Cocoon Too was heading north and us south in Vero Beach. Tom also did the final design and installation of our paravanes! They owned a KK42 for years before the moved up to the 48.

Larry: The 48 is my favourite boat. We love our 42, but if money was no object, this would be it. The 52 is just too much boat. We've been on Lynn and Neil Parker's Navigator (Seattle) which is about the same age. Also a lovely boat.

I remember reading about this couple and didn't connect the dots when you mentioned them a while back. If I recall they were from Vancouver Island. Didn't they own Coccoon, a 42 that was destroyed in a fire?

JD....after viewing that boat I asked myself what else I would want. That one doesn't leave much on my list. I dunno....if we had a million to spare....maybe that one would be as close as I could get to the ultimate boat for us, but I think my Admiral would want the office space for her shoe closet.

You're right, they lost Cocoon on the East Coast, in a fire after they had completely personalize her mechanically, electricaly, etc. It took them a while to get the 48. I can attest to bright work on Cocoon Too, it's spectacular.

They have a place in Port Alberni. You should look them up if you get over that way. They're gracious hosts.

That's a great looking boat at what seems to me to be a very reasonable price. I'm struggling not to hop on a plane to go see it. This time next year😉

That's what I was thinking. Do you need another $500000 to operate it?

I assumed it was to maintain the varnish.

Sorry I would have to pass on that boat. Insufficient support for the anchor platform and too much freeboard.

If I had a million dollars... I'd probably gather the components for my engine, call the boat transport company and haul Seaweed down the coast to St. Pete. I've got a friend with resources there... That's what I'd do.

Then, I'd pay to have this blasted job finished (and swear never to replace an engine ever again)

However, as long as money is no object:
Have Seaweed spiffy shiny again (the 30 year old gelcoat could be better)
Add two more 100 watt Renogy solar panels
Buy four Walmart Group 29 marine batteries (one of mine died this month)
Install a plain old steers-a-compass-course autopilot
Fit a modified (1/2 transom height) tuna door
And be-still-my-heart never haul water again (Spectra watermaker with Z-Brane)

That's how I'd spend that much. Seaweed would continue to be my home. She suits me fine.

A KK, though beautiful is a couple's boat.

Otherwise, well, I've got my home, friends and a daughter that is a good child. Plus she made me a grandma.

Greetings,
If I had a million, I'd sell our current vessel and rent/charter for the next 10-15 years worldwide.

Exactly! And some house work. We're a bit boat poor right now.
