A new Krogen 44′ AE will start construction next month, the happy result of Kadey-Krogen Yachts’ 600th yacht sale. The customers of Kadey-Krogen sales executive Greg Kaufman were identified only as “two new members” of the KKY family of owners. The yachts will be built at KKY’s construction partner, Asia Harbor Yacht Builders, in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, with delivery expected in the fall of 2015.
The Krogen 44′ AE is the latest version of the company’s original 42′ design, which was penned by the late Jim Krogen for his business partner Art Kadey. The “AE” designator was applied to Krogen 44′ yachts delivered as of 2011, which incorporated a set of more than 50 ergonomic and technical changes. The newest iteration includes a redesigned galley and expanded flybridge.
