An iconic design, the Krogen 42 is a ballasted, full-displacement trawler whose distinctive profile (note the sweeping sheer and prominent bow) and all-weather muscle have long been admired by experienced long range cruisers. With a range of over 2,000 nautical miles and tremendous storage space, many remote destinations are within reach of the Krogen 42. The hull is solid fiberglass below the waterline with sandwich construction topsides. Until hull #65 (1985), they were built with glass-over-plywood decks; thereafter, the deck and superstructure are cored. There are two versions of the Krogen 42, the Standard model with walkaround side decks and Widebody model (introduced in 1989) with a full-width salon. Both versions were available with two lower-level accommodation plans. Double doors open from the aft deck to the teak-paneled salon where an L-shaped sofa and table are to starboard. The U-shaped galley is forward, on the starboard side of the salon. The focal point of the Krogen 42 is the pilothouse with convertible watch berth, two overhead hatches, and port/starboard deck doors. A single 120hp Lehman diesel will cruise at 7–8 knots. A total of 206 were built including five with twin engines.


Classic Krogen trawler with full-displacement hull is widely praised for excellent seakeeping, efficient operation, fine joiner work.


Highlights include very tall freeboard, full prop-protecting keel, roomy cockpit, wide sidedecks, superb pilothouse visibility. Glass-over-plywood decks, superstructure upgraded to fiberglass in 1985 (hull #65); cored hull became solid fiberglass in 1995.


Generator doubles as get-home engine. Range exceeds 2,000 miles.
