Kadey-Krogen 58

Kadey’s Cruising Cred

“This boat was a real milestone for us, being the 20th hull,” says Larry Polster, vice president of Kadey-Krogen Yachts. “She’ll be at the Miami show and sometime in April she will be shipped to the Med, and the owners will cruise her there for a few years. They’re Americans from Florida, they’re avid boaters—former sailors—coming over to the dark side so to speak. This wasn’t a ‘let’s go buy a $2 million boat’ type of thing. These guys are real boaters and they bring a lot of cruising experience to the table. She’ll be well used. She’s also the first 58 with a hardtop, and we’ll be offering that as an option in the future.”

Cruising the Med for a few years sure sounds like a decent way to break into powerboating.
