OLYMPIA is hull #5 of this go anywhere, anytime series of personal size Long Range cruising yachts from the venerable builder, Kadey-Krogen. She proved her capabilities “right out of the box” so to speak, on her maiden voyage at the hands of her delivery crew from Stuart, FL, up the East Coast to her new owner. The first week of that trip was quite eventful including pushing through 10 to 12 foot seas throughout the first night, stops in a few harbors and anchorages, some famous and some local knowledge type of places, and sumptuous meals, prepared in the beautifully designed and equipped galley built and equipped to the owner’s specifications. This entire leg of the trip was experienced by an editor from PMY magazine and recounted in a terrific article he wrote and later published in that periodical. (For a copy give us a call)

It’s a wonderful narrative of what he experienced as part of the delivery crew during that week and confirmed that OLYMPIA was exactly the boat that the owner had envisioned when purchasing, customizing, and equipping her new 55 Expedition. As is the case with most yachts purchased in this size, class, and style she was the result of someone’s dreams. And OLYMPIA proved to be a dream come true. From her twin John Deere 168 hp diesels in her spotless, white, walk-in engine room to her luxurious, climate controlled, enclosed flybridge deck and helm she is a cruisers fantasy. Her warm cherry interior was carefully hand crafted with a fit and finish that will make even the most discerning owner proud. Her rugged exterior appearance belies the beauty and comfort her interior offers. After spending a day of cruising at her large comfortable helm, captain and crew can adjourn to the boat deck, aft deck or salon for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres while the “chef” prepares the evening meal in the galley located in the forward port corner of the salon. And when it’s time to turn in, the owner’s and guest staterooms and heads offer deluxe accommodations for a sound night’s sleep.

Whether overnighting underway, at anchor in some quiet remote quay or at a marina, OLYMPIA is the perfect cruising platform. She is offered for sale by her original owner who is retiring from extended cruising. Having spent some 2000 hours aboard, whether for a weekend or two, or months at a time, the decision to change lifestyles has been made and she is looking for a good home for OLYMPIA.

So, if you have dreams of cruising the coasts, rivers, islands, and faraway ports of the world OLYMPIA might just be the right boat for you. After all, she is the stuff of which dreams are made. Give us a call and take the first step in your journey.
