Hull Design
Designed by James Krogen, the Krogen Express 52 combines classic, timeless style with exceptional seakeeping and efficiency. Her plumb stem, raised bow, and broad beam forward allow her to slice through the waves with ease while providing a great deal of living space in her accommodations. Her low profile allows her to get under bridges as low as 16′ and with a draft of just 4′, she’ll take you almost anywhere. Her semi-displacement hull delivers trawler efficiency at displacement speeds with true cruise capabilities in the mid-to-upper teens. And her generous keel provides stability and protection for her twin propellers.

Krogen Livability
Boarding a Krogen Express couldn’t be easier with a large transom door and wide boarding gates on either side of the spacious, covered cockpit. Ample storage for lines, fenders, cleaning supplies, and more is provided by the cavernous lazarette below. Entering the saloon through double, weather tight aluminum doors, her owners are treated to an inviting handcrafted cherry wood interior. Along with her sumptuous joinery, old world craftsmanship is obvious with the quality of her appointments and overall exceptional fit and finish. Legendary Krogen livability is evidenced by the large, sliding side windows and generous headroom along with the integral galley-up design. Comfortable leather Stressless chairs to port and a built-in Ultra Suede L-settee to starboard are perfectly situated for enjoying a Samsung LCD TV and Bose surround sound home theater system. To port is generous additional underdeck storage and two built-in bookcases featuring fiddled shelves and still more locker storage.

Saloon Settee
Located to starboard, the comfortable Ultrasuede L-shaped settee has storage beneath and a built-in end table forward. The custom cherrywood hi-lo table has leaves that fold out for expanded seating capacity and can be moved outside for dining al fresco. The settee, neatly tailored with supportive knee bolsters, is adorned with custom neutral fabric while elegant custom window treatments provide privacy and protection from the sun.

The 52’s gourmet galley is located up where her chef can be part of the action. She’s well equipped for meal preparation with a 3-burner, Force 10 propane range with oven, 14 cu. ft. GE refrigerator and GE microwave oven, and deep Elkay sink with pullout sprayer faucet. The granite countertops will complement any decor, and the raised section is ideal for serving the crew and guests. Classic round portlights provide cross ventilation while abundant storage ensures a good home can be found for provisions sufficient for extended cruising. On the floor is a hatch allowing engine room access, and the galley is equipped with portable fire extinguisher and Safe-T-Alert carbon monoxide detector to ensure a safe place to cook.

Pilothouse Helm
The centerline helm console in the raised pilothouse features electronic Yanmar shifters, two Raymarine gSeries color radar-chartplotters, Raymarine auto pilot Smart Control w/ wireless remote control, Raymarine i70 MFD for depth display, all within easy reach of the fine Buff Ultraleather Stidd helm chair. The custom, handcrafted cherry helm wheel, a true work of marine art, guides her through the water, while the color radar-chartplotters are integrated with the precise auto pilot.  Stern and engine room cameras are also displayed on the chartplotters, and the Raymarine VHF radio ensures clear communication when required.  Dedicated drawers and lighted table facilitate the use of paper charts and cruising guides.  Side-Power bow and stern thrusters provide assistance for precise, close quarters handling.  Controls for the dual trumpet Kahlenberg horns, intermittent Exalto wiper/washer system, Maxwell Liberty windlass, and Lenco trim tabs are all close at hand. Entertainment is provided by an amplified Fusion Stereo system controlling three zones.

Pilothouse Settee
The pilothouse watch berth is elevated for optimal forward visibility, long enough for naps underway, and converts to a 3/4 double berth to accommodate overnight guests. A small table and 110v outlet provide a convenient work surface and wall mounted reading lamps make this an ideal location to retire with a good book. Above the settee, a color matched half hull model showcases her elegant lines and efficient, sea-kindly form. Several small lockers for equipment storage can be found below the settee. High quality, weathertight Dutch doors lead directly to the wide side decks while stairs to port of the settee allow convenient access to the flybridge.

Guest Stateroom
An L-settee that converts to a double berth highlights the flexible nature of the guest stateroom while the Pullman berth provides additional sleeping capacity. Located inboard is a large desk with drawers. A deep hanging locker and huge drawers under the settee provide ample storage. Two port lights and a screened hatch overhead make the GSR light and airy while wall-mounted lamps allow for reading at night. A full Vacuflush head, complete with stand-up, molded fiberglass shower with seat and granite counters is located across the companionway, and also includes three towel racks and storage below the sink.

Master Stateroom
The centerpiece of the master stateroom is a standard queen island berth (no need for custom linens) providing more than 7′ of headroom. With 4 portlights and a large overhead deck hatch, the feel is light and airy – surprisingly generous for a motoryacht this size. Hanging lockers and smaller cubbies to port and starboard, 6 deep drawers under the berth, and a dresser with both drawers and shelved storage ensure her owners have ample room for their belongings. A power lift raises the berth to reveal cavernous storage beneath along with a dedicated battery bank for the windlass and bow thruster. Also equipped with a cable television outlet and CruiseAir zone control, the MSR perfect place to settle down after a day of cruising. The ensuite head features a molded fiberglass shower stall with a seat, Vacuflush head, and an elegant granite countertop.

Flybridge & Boat Deck
Though the pilothouse is fully capable, most Krogen Express owners prefer to run from up top where they can better experience the soothing sounds of sea breezes and ocean wave while enjoying the comfort of the comfortable, raised centerline Stidd helm chair.  Navigation support includes a pair Raymarine 12″ hybrid touch color chartplotters, autopilot control head, color multifunction display for depth, and a Ritchie compass. Controls for the Sidepower bow and stern thrusters, Lenco trim tabs, Maxwell Liberty windlass, and Fusion stereo with Clarion speakers are close at hand. The Raymarine 4′ HD color open array radar is mounted on a sturdy and stylish aluminum spar-style mast that can be lowered when needed. Shaded by a color coordinated Sunbrella bimini top, the L-settee with matching cushions provides ample seating for crew and guests and contains storage beneath for the extensive canvas cover package. Situated aft of the settee, the open boat deck includes a Lifesling 2 Overboard rescue system, a Frigid Rigid Iceland cooler, and two Kayak mounts. This is the ideal place to enjoy that cup of morning coffee or catch a beautiful evening sunset. The 11′ deluxe console tender w/ 25 hp 4-stroke Yamaha outboard has been serviced recently and can be launched with the fully hydraulic, extendable Steelhead crane.

Engine Room & Systems
An exceptional walk-in, walk-around, stand-up engine room houses the brand new 440 hp Yanmar twin diesels which can be easily accessed all around. The engines are fired by dedicated 8D AGM engine start batteries and drive through matched Kanzaki transmissions. Structure-born noise and vibration is well controlled with the standard Aqua Drive systems. The 12 kw Northern Lights genset sits on the centerline and is easily accessible for servicing. A Reverso system is connected to both engines, both transmissions, and the genset to make for easy fluid changes, while a Groco fuel transfer pump makes equalizing the tanks a breeze.  Water and fuel levels can be easily assessed with convenient sight glasses.  An automatic fire suppression system, freshwater spigot, and storage for tools and supplies above the water tanks are additional features welcomed by her owners.  Located beneath the guest cabin sole in a Pump room, away from the heat of the engine room, are the three CruiseAir reverse-cycle A/C systems. In the same compartment is a Torrid 20-gallon stainless steel water heater which includes a heat exchanger from the Yanmars and a Rule bilge pump and float. Beneath the salon, the 4000 watt Mastervolt Combi inverter/charger (200 amps), and 75′ Cablemaster shorepower cord and drum are easily accessed.
