WLB-Landing-page-KE52The Krogen Express 52’ is a highly-evolved design featuring the best materials and construction. It embodies a no-compromise approach to the power cruising lifestyle, in a size that can be enjoyed and easily managed by a couple.

Say “Krogen Express” within any gathering of knowledgeable cruisers and the name brings immediate recognition. Elegance and beauty leap to mind. Nods to an impeccable design pedigree. Respect for the capability to handle tough conditions comfortably. Admiration for the efficiency to make long passages economical, and the speed to make long passages short!

Cruising Without Compromise. Designed by acclaimed naval architect James Krogen, the Krogen Express 52’ features a semi-displacement hull that is a marvel of performance and efficiency. When conditions and time allow, throttle back to 8 knots and enjoy fuel consumption of only three gallons per hour. Or when you need to cover long distances, beat a tide change, or escape the weather push her electronic controls forward and run at 16 or more knots. With Krogen Express this speed capability doesn’t compromise comfort. With her plumb stern and fine entry forward she slices through waves that would keep many planing vessels at the docks. And with hard chines aft her rolling motions are limited and controlled.

Krogen designs are known for their livability. The Krogen Express 52’ offers ease of boarding, a spacious covered cockpit, an airy saloon with large windows, a galley-up layout that is very chef-friendly, and a raised pilothouse with elevated watch berth for optimal forward viewing. Accommodations forward include a master stateroom with a full center island queen and exceptional headroom and storage, and a den/stateroom with a nice desk, convertible L-settee, and a pullman berth. Two heads, each with separate shower compartments, a stacked washer/dryer, 360 gallons of fresh water, and wide side decks add to this exceptionally comfortable coastal cruiser.
