I have extensive experience with both long-range & coastal-cruising yachts. As a Kadey-Krogen owner, and now the Production Manager for North Pacific Yachts, I know "both sides" of the trawler yacht world.
Let's talk about what brands could be right for you.
My love for boating started with sailing at summer camp in Northern Minnesota and later as a crew member at the Milwaukee Yacht Club during college years.
Today, my family and I find that cruising the Salish Sea offers an unparalleled connection to the natural world. Owning several boats over the years, my wife Joan and I now live aboard our Kadey-Krogen trawler yacht. Based in the Pacific Northwest, I have a strong background in engineering, project management and sales. And I enjoy sharing my passion for boating.
I have crewed up to Alaska, down the Pacific Coast and up the Atlantic. Joan and I dream of cruising the Sea of Cortez on our Krogen 42. While it may take a few more years to reach that goal, I am excited to share my first-hand knowledge with others and to make sure that you are at home on any sea with the boat that matches your needs best.
Let's talk. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 406-948-2455.
Thanks for making it fun!

We were sure we'd found the right broker. We didn't expect to gain a friend. - Ken & Marcy
We like your approach and knowledge. You feel more like an advisor than a broker – which I appreciate. I am glad we are working with you.
- John & Cheri
Remote buying because there's a pandemic is no one's first choice. Thanks for being thorough & thoughtful.
- John & Andrea
Selling our boat had to happen from afar. We're so glad we could trust you fully. Thanks for making it smooth.

Wow, that was easy!
Tippecanoe is a 1984 Kadey-Krogen 42. We have been living aboard since 2017, and have really enjoyed waterfront living. And being able to wander the great Salish Sea with our home is a magnificent plus! When we started I would say, "I love it, Joan likes it." But more recently, Joan has said, "I more than like it."
Tippecanoe is an odd duck in that she has twin engines. Some of the economy of a single-engine is lost, but be have full redundancy, and we sure look great landing to port or starboard! If you'd like to learn more, check out this article in PassageMaker Magazine.
