Yacht price



Designed by James Krogen, the Krogen Express 52 combines classic, timeless style with exceptional seakeeping and efficiency. Her plumb stem, raised bow, and broad beam forward allow her to slice through the waves with ease while providing a great deal of living space in her accommodations. Her low profile allows her to get under bridges as low as 16' and with a draft of just 4', she'll take you almost anywhere. Her semi-displacement hull delivers trawler efficiency at displacement speeds with true cruise capabilities in the mid-to-upper teens. And her generous keel provides stability and protection for her twin propellers.

BLUE MOON is a beautiful one owner, low hour Krogen Express 52. She has been continuously maintained and upgraded by her owner.  Recent oil samples available. Call for a list of the recent maintenance performed by her owner. She's in cruise away condition!

A Garmin color radar chartplotter is integrated with the Garmin AP21 autopilot. Two dedicated depth displays offer redundancy while a Uniden UM625C VHF radio ensures good communication when required.  Two large chart drawers and a wide, lighted chart table to starboard allow for easy storage and use of paper charts.

While her pilothouse is fully capable, most Krogen Express owners prefer operating their vessels on the flybridge where they can better experience the sights and sounds while underway. Conversations are easy as very little engine noise makes its way to the flyrbidge, leaving only the soothing sounds of sea breezes and ocean waves with which to compete. A frameless venturi windscreen deflects air above the captain sitting in the comfortable, raised centerline Stidd helm chair. A Garmin suite of electronics provides navigational support along with the large Danforth compass.  Controls for the bow and stern thrusters, trim tabs, horn and windlass are close at hand. The 4' HD radar scanner and satellite TV antenna are mounted on an aluminum spar-style mast that can be lowered when necessary.
