Length w/ Pulpit:
Based on the classic Krogen 42 Trawler, the Krogen 44 offers more space than her predecessor (thanks to a slightly wider beam) while incorporating numerous design and engineering refinements. The added length of the 44 can be seen in her slightly larger pilothouse and roomier aft deck. A not-so-obvious upgrade is that the pilothouse, flybridge and boat deck are a single mold instead of fastened together providing a much stronger structure. Below deck, the interior of the Krogen 44 is very similar to her predecessor. An L-shaped settee with teak table is to starboard in the salon, opposite two occasional chairs, and a U-shaped galley is forward, also to starboard. Accessed from companionway steps forward of the salon, an amidships guest stateroom with convertible settee, desk, and book shelves doubles as a den/office. The single head is to port, and the master stateroom with island queen berth is forward. Note the weathertight aluminum doors and sliding aluminum windows. A Widebody version with a single starboard side deck came out in 2006. Built on a full displacement hull, a single 158hp John Deere diesel will cruise at 8 knots with a range of 2,000-plus nautical miles.
