1999 Kadey-Krogen Whaleback

Chester, United States


From: The Powerboat Guide A distinctive design with a flush foredeck and Portuguese bridge,the 48 Whaleback is a full-displacement cruising trawler with adeep entry, rounded bilges, and a ballasted, prop-protecting keel.With well over 16 feet of beam and no side decks, the interiordimensions of the Whaleback are downright extravagant for a boatthis size. The floorplan is arranged on a single level from the cockpitto the forward stateroom and includes three staterooms (one ofwhich doubles as a den) and two full heads in addition to an expansivesalon and generous galley. All of the cabinets, trim, and panelingare fashioned of grain-matched teak. The pilothouse, with itsdistinctive reverse-raked windshield, features full 360 degrees ofvisibility in addition to a spacious chart table, an L-shaped settee,port and starboard deck access doors, and a wet bar. There?s roomon the extended upper deck for dinghy storage, and the mast andboom are fully functional. Note the protected walkway surroundingthe pilothouse. At an economical 8-knot cruising speed, a single210hp Cat diesel delivers a cruising range of approximately 2,000miles. About 30 were built until production ended in 2003.
