Capt Andrea Gaines, CPYB
BLUE MOON can be accessed from the aft deck, with a large transom door and wide boarding gates on both sides of the spacious, covered cockpit. Boarding with luggage or provisions is safe and convenient.
The lazarette below the aft deck provides for ample storage for lines, fenders, cleaning supplies, dive gear and water toys.
Entering the saloon through double, watertight aluminum doors you will find an inviting cherry wood interior. Along with her sumptuous joinery, old world craftsmanship is obvious with the quality of her appointments and overall fit and finish. Legendary Krogen livability is evidenced by the large opening windows and generous headroom. Inviting reclining chairs to port and an L-settee to starboard are situated for comfortably viewing the built-in 26" LCD TV and enjoying the Bose home theater system. To port is generous additional under deck storage and a built-in bookcase featuring fiddled shelves and lockers.
Located to starboard, is a comfortable L-shaped settee with storage beneath and an end table forward. The settee is covered in ultra-suede. The hi-lo table has leaves that fold out for expanded seating capacity and can be moved outside for dining under the stars. Silhouette blinds provide privacy and protection from the sun.
The gourmet galley-up is equipped for meal preparation with a 3-burner, Force 10 propane range, GE refrigerator/freezer, GE microwave, and deep Elkay sink with pullout sprayer faucet. The Corian counter tops are easy to maintain and the raised section is ideal for serving guests. Traditional, stylish round port lights provides ventilation while abundant storage ensures a good home can be found for all provisions. Beneath the starboard side bookcase, the U-line ice maker frees up space in the freezer.
A queen island berth is the centerpiece of the master stateroom. With over 7' of headroom and light provided by four (4) opening portlights and a large screened deck hatch overhead, this master stateroom feels surprisingly generous. Full hanging lockers are found to both port and starboard, six (6) deep drawers under the berth, and a dresser with drawers and shelved storage ensure owners have all the room they need for cruising and living aboard. A look beneath the berth reveals a large storage area and provides access to the dedicated battery bank for the bow thruster and windlass.
Master Head (ensuite)
The ensuite head features a molded fiberglass shower stall with a seat, Vacuflush head, and Corian countertops.
An L-settee that converts to a double berth highlights the flexible nature of the guest stateroom, while the pullman berth provides additional sleeping capacity. Located inboard is a large desk with drawers. A deep hanging locker and deep drawers under the settee provide ample storage. Two port lights and a screened hatch overhead make this space airy and comfortable.
The centerline helm console in the raised wheelhouse is equipped with a full complement of navigational electronics, all within easy reach of the Ultraleather Stidd helm chair. Precise Teleflex Morse controls allow smooth control of the twin 480hp Yanmars while her rudders are guided by a custom, handcrafted cherry helm wheel. Garmin electronics occupy the helm. 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. Sidepower bow and stern thrusters help with close quarters handling. Controls for the dual trumpet Kahlenberg horns, intermittent Exalto wiper/washer system, Maxwell windlass, and Lenco electric trim tabs are all close at hand.
Pilot Berth / Settee
The wheelhouse settee/pilot berth is elevated for optimal forward visibility, long enough for naps underway, and converts to a 3/4 double berth to accommodate overnight guests. A table provides a convenient work surface and the wall mounted lamps to port and starboard make this an ideal location to retire with a good book. Above the settee, a color coordinated half hull model showcases her elegant lines and makes for interesting conversation. Beneath the settee are several small lockers for equipment storage. Weather tight dutch doors lead directly to the wide side decks while stairs to the port side of the settee provide safe access to the flybridge. Textilene screens for all pilothouse windows provide sun protection.
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. Shaded by a Sunbrella? bimini top, the L-settee Sunbrella? cushions provide for comfortable seating for crew and guests and contains storage beneath.
Just aft of the flybridge settee the open boat deck easily accommodates two folding deck chairs and serves as access to the 11' Nautica center console tender. The dinghy, with a raised console and seating for 4, is powered by a 40 hp 4-stroke Yamaha outboard and launched with the Steelhead 1000 lb davit.
The Krogen Express boasts a stand up engine room which houses a pair of 480 hp electronic Yanmar diesel engines that can be easily accessed from every side. The engines are fired by dedicated starting batteries and drive through matched Kanzaki transmissions. Vibration is kept to a minimum with Aqua Drive systems. The 12kw Northern Lights generator is located centerline and has its own starting battery. A Reverso fluid changing system is connected to each engine and transmission, and the generator to improve serviceability. As with the water tanks, diesel fuel levels can be easily assessed with convenient sight tubes. An automatic fire suppression system, freshwater washdown, and storage for tools and supplies above and alongside the water tanks are additional features welcomed by her owners.
Pump Room (Located beneath the guest cabin sole)
Located in a separate spacious bilge area, are three CruiseAir reverse-cycle air conditioners. In the same compartment are the shower sump filters, and a 20 gallon Torrid water heater which is supplemented with heat from the main engines.
Battery Room (located beneath the salon sole)
Below the sole of the salon you will find a MasterVolt 4000w inverter/charger, 1200 Ah house battery bank, and Cablemaster drum storage, all of which are easily accessed.
