Designed by James & Kurt Krogen, the Krogen Express 53 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. 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.
