Kadey-Krogen 55 Expedition – LEVITTATE




Kadey-Krogen 55 Expedition– LEVITTATE

When you step aboard this Kadey-Krogen 55 Expedition Yacht, you will easily see how it sets itself apart. She has one of the best engineered full-displacement hull designs available. This little ship features a fine entry, an ideal displacement-to-length ratio, and a “wine glass” stern that outperforms most trawlers in both optimal and adverse sea conditions.

Her layout consists of a full-beam salon (offering 25% more area than others her size), a large well-appointed galley and an unrestricted single-level approach to both staterooms, with easy access to the pilothouse through the curved staircase. Immediately upon stepping aboard this immaculate trawler, you’ll sense the livability of this design when you step through the double salon doors.

Powered by twin John Deere 4045 TFM Tier 3 engines, with a reported range of 4,000+ NM, this engine package delivers the ultimate in reliability and “get home” solutions. This two-owner Krogen 55 offers an unparalleled mix of livability, reliability and superb fit and finish. Levittate is on the market due to an unexpected change in family circumstances.

Entering Levittate through the large, double weather-tight doors in the cockpit, you step into the enormous open concept salon & galley. To starboard is room for two of your favorite household chairs, while to port is a large L-shape settee with expandable table. Just forward on the port side is the large triangular shaped galley with Bluestar range, convection microwave, full size refrigerator, dishwasher, and wine cooler. Storage abounds.

To starboard, opposite the galley, are the steps to the pilothouse. In the pilothouse, you will find a commanding 360 degree view of your surroundings. Windows are 1/2 inch tempered glass and the welded aluminum Dutch doors are weathertight. Behind the helm chair is a large settee and table that converts to a full size-berth. Outside, there are wing stations on both the port and starboard side of the Portuguese Bridge. Aft of the pilothouse is the boat deck with a 2023 Achilles LSI-290 tender, a 1,250lb crane and an entertaining area and summer outdoor galley.

Down below, between the galley and the steps to the pilothouse is the hallway forward to the two staterooms as well as full-size door access to the machinery space (air-conditioned) and engine room. Moving forward and to starboard is the guest cabin / office, with twin berths and a desk. In the hallway cabinet is a Bosch washer and 220VAC vented dryer. Opposite this cabin is the full guest head which also contains a welded aluminum door for access to machinery spaces and engine room. Forward is the owner’s cabin with a walk-around queen berth and full head. Natural light and ventilation abound through two large deck hatches and four opening ports. Sizable port and starboard hanging lockers are complemented by ten drawers.
