Additional Images
This Pacific Coast couple purchased their Kadey Krogen 58 and promptly put her on the hard until they could spend some time with her this winter. They asked Captain Chris to come aboard and build their cruising confidence.

Starting with a launch and training delivery, Captain Chris worked with the owner and his buddies on the way to her temporary new dock. From systems review to close quarters maneuvering, Captain Chris will coach you all along the way.

After a few days getting comfortable on their own at the dock, the owners invited both Captains Chris and Alyse back to do some docking practice on a cool crisp morning.

This video shows a gorgeous Kadey Krogen 58 as she launches in Stuart Florida. Look carefully and you will also see a Hatteras LRC (Long Range Cruiser) as she heads east on the Okeechobee. After the video scroll a bit further down and check out a few photos of this terrific trawler and her new crew...Happy New Year from sunny Florida!

Wonderfully protected props with a full keel.
This trawler manufacturer provides so much great information for the owner to fully understand the design and layout of their vessel.
Ready to launch...perfect boat dog included!
A good yard knows exactly where to place the straps but it can be nerve racking when it's YOUR boat in the lift well.
Hmm....the batteries needed a bit of a boost before we could get underway. Fortunately the engine room is just that- ROOMY! and easy for maintenance to get done.
All's well that ends well. Kadey Krogen 58 sitting pretty at the dock.
Practice! Practice! Practice! That's the only way we perfect our skills. Confidence building at the helm.
A happy family ready to start cruising aboard their Kadey Krogen 58...At home on any sea!
