Experiences From Kadey Krogen 58 owners Sam & Anne Pratt
Here's a note from Kadey Krogen 58 owners, Sam and his wife Anne who take time from their business, Rockland Manufacturing, to cruise around the Chesapeake Bay in the summer months. They can also be found aboard their KK58 on the Treasure Coast of Florida during the winter and early spring. Traveling with the Pratts always includes their "girls" Patsy and Tina. Thanks for the good wishes!

Happy new cruisers.

Compliments from Darling Kadey Krogen 44
Buck and Haldine are the proud new owners of a Kadey Krogen 44. They planned to do the Great Loop in one year...until the cruising bug hit them. We have no doubt that one day the ends of the circle will meet but until then they are enjoying every moment of their journey as they meander about the waterways:

Thanks from Krogen Express Yachts
Betsie & John Tegtmeyer, owners of Krogen Express Yachts asked us to speak at the FIRST Krogen Express rendezvous in Stuart FL.

We are delighted to share informaton about our travels anytime. Here's a note from Betsie:
