With its twin 480 hp Yanmar diesels and plumb bow, the Krogen Express 52 has a 1,680-nautical-mile range at 8 knots. Double the pace, and range is 500 nm. The main-deck galley forward of the salon is well positioned to service the entire yacht. Mezzanine seating for three is abaft the skipper’s seat.
Belowdecks is a forepeak master stateroom. A guest stateroom (or office) is abaft the master to starboard, with a portside head. The 52’s hull is solid fiberglass below the waterline. At press time, there was one Krogen Express 52 available at $2,395,000.

“The 15-foot, 11-inch beam carries far forward, and, combined with the raised bow section, gives the 52 a spacious interior for the cruising couple. The forepeak master has great headroom and stowage. The cherry finish is light and airy, and the boat feels more like a summer cottage. Ports in the forward face of the coachroof are a nice touch, bringing in fresh air and light. The guest stateroom reveals the 52’s couple-cruiser mission.”
