Time will tell of course, but I see success. CE A rated SD sixty footers with a pedigree are few. The Fleming 58 is one that comes to mind. Working with PAE on a new build is a pleasant experience as best I know, a rare builder in this regard. Warranty and commissioning are near the best in the industry.

Expanding into other market niches doesn't equal losing your identity. It's about business expansion. If FD nordie sales were tanking, I would agree. This is about growing their business and nothing wrong with that. There may be some NH purists who disagree with the strategy, but they don't own the business.

I wonder if the market had changed so much since Kadey Krogen tried this 15? Years ago.

They probably think they can do it better.

Richard,

Which models represented KK's attempts 15 or so years ago?

The designs were sold off when Kurt Krogen retired. Still an ongoing business with different ownership. Nice boats but different market.

No idea, perhaps KK had one previously that I'm unaware of. At least one member here owns I believe a 54' or 58' version of a Krogen Express in the PNW and seems pretty happy with his choice.

I like the NH 59 CP. Nice looking boat and I hope it will have the same quality as other NHs......

I doubt quality will go down based on hull design.
