The Kadey Krogen 48 North Sea design is an ideal long-range trawler for an active cruising couple. Klassy Kady is hull number 25 in the series and a 2004 model year boat with the popular widebody saloon arrangement. She is ocean ready rugged and elegantly sophisticated, a pleasing blend of form and function.
She has been lovingly looked after, regularly upgraded and presents as a much younger looking yacht than her model year designation. The teak wood joinery, carpet over wood soles, Corian counters, Ekornes Stressless recliners, comfortable upholstery and inclusion of large windows create a very spacious, comfortable and homey environment for spending extended time aboard.
The interior accommodations on Klassy Kady are arranged into a three cabin, two head layout. The port guest cabin has two bunk beds for visitors. The starboard guest cabin is larger and has a full-size berth sleeps two. The guest cabins share the independent head and shower in the hallway forward to starboard. The master is forward with an island berth on center. There are bed stands, built in seats, drawers, lockers and incredible ventilation and light via overhead hatches and outboard opening port lights. The head and shower are connected making this a large and private stateroom
There are many impressive features aboard and numerous improvements have characterized her ownership. For example; the navigation and communications helm electronics in the pilothouse and on the flybridge were both modernized in 2018 and warrantied until May 2019
The essentials aboard include a well-appointed galley with propane stove, microwave convection oven, refrigeration and freezer. There are numerous pleasing amenities throughout including upholstery, comfortable wool carpeting and professionally decorated home furnishing décor.
Located in Stuart, Florida, Klassy Kady is positioned to depart over to the Bahamas (where she can practically drive herself from memory) or to head north to the Chesapeake or further up to visit the granite shores Down East. Maybe a short turn south – cruising to the Florida Keys and then hopping over to the Caribbean? With Klassy Kady, it’s your call. This vessel is easy to learn how to run; safe, practical and ultimately capable of helping you explore the coasts and cross the seas from the comfort of a beautiful waterfront home. Please get in touch to schedule a visit to see for yourself and read on to learn more.
Prior to offering her for sale, the current owner has thoughtfully gone through the boat to address normal maintenance issues and to help insure that all systems are current and will be ready for the next care taker. As part of this refreshing, Klassy Kady had the pilothouse dash reworked and new nav/com instruments (see inventory below) were installed.
Powered by a John Deere 6068TFM50 main engine (225 HP), she also boasts a 12kW Northern Lights generator, ABT hydraulic active fin stabilizers, ABT 24V electric Bow thruster and is equipped throughout with many liveaboard comforts including a custom 40 GPH water maker, central vacuum, and a Cruisair four zone reverse cycle air conditioning. She also has 720 watts of Sunpower solar panels to keep the vessel charged up when you travel remotely.
The outside areas include a covered cockpit with a Frigibar Tournament freezer. The cockpit and starboard side decks are teak. The foredeck has built in seating aft with lockers underneath and a Maxwell HWC-2200 12V horizontal windlass with two anchors ready for action. The boat deck features a 12′3” AB RIB inflatable with 40 HP Yamaha four stroke outboard– easily deployed by the Marquipt 1500 crane.
The flybridge has two helm chairs for side by side enjoyment underneath a folding Bimini top. This is a great location for operating underway (navigation equipment and helm new in 2018) and a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the view once you are settled.

COCKPIT AND SWIM PLATFORM
You can board Klassy Kady from the aft cockpit door via the swim platform (great when arriving by dinghy) or from the starboard side deck door. The aft deck cockpit area is covered overhead by the boat deck and can be enclosed with a custom wrap around Textilene cover. Shore power connections and a fresh water tap. There is also a wing door on the starboard side to deflect the breeze when enjoying the cockpit. Cockpit cap rails are varnished teak and the entire lower walking surfaces is decked with teak.
There is a large opening hatch for entering the lazarette. The lazarette houses the steering system and provides plenty of storage. From the cockpit you can head aft to the swim platform for a dinghy adventure, forward to starboard outside up to the pilothouse and foredeck or straight ahead into the saloon.
Two double welded aluminum weathertight doors with windows inset, open up to allow entrance into the saloon. Klassy Kady is the widebody option (no walking side deck to port) so she is much roomier and spacious than a double walk around. The saloon is carpeted wall to wall with Maslan 100% wool. For visibility, light and ventilation, there are large opening windows port and starboard as well as an opening window in the aft bulkhead.
To starboard is an L-shaped settee covered in Sunbrella that faces a teak wood hi-lo table that has the versatility to function as a coffee/cocktail table or can expand to a large dining table that will seat eight for meals. Forward of the settee is an end cabinet and entertainment center that houses an LG 42” flat screen television and Bose sound system. All windows have Hunter Douglas Silhouette shades and Sunbrella curtains.
To port are two new leather Ekornes Stressless recliners and ottomans. Additionally, a beverage cabinet that houses a Raritan ice-maker (new), wine/liquor and bookshelves with newly added custom wooden doors. Immediately forward of this cabinet and directly across from the galley is a GE stacked clothes washer and dryer. The engine room is accessed by a floor hatch forward in the sole.
The open-faced galley is forward of the saloon on the starboard side. It includes abundant food preparation space atop the Corian counters and there are multiple lockers and drawers for provisions, cook ware, utensils, etc. Klassy Kady has an impressive complement of GE appliances: Full-size refrigerator/freezer, Trash compactor and Convection microwave oven (new 2017). There is a Force 10 (3) burner LPG stove with oven, GE water purification system, and a large stainless-steel sink. Preparing meals in the galley is enjoyable and you can converse with the off-watch crew in the salon.
Moving forward from the galley you can go up to the pilothouse or down a short flight of steps to the lower level living quarters comprised of three staterooms and two heads.
PORT GUEST STATEROOM
On the lower level, the guest stateroom is positioned to port. It has twin bunk beds, a desk with four drawers, two additional large drawers under the beds, and a hanging locker. There are two opening portlights outboard. This room gives you flexibility when having more overnight guests and is also a fantastic long-range commissary for cruising as each bunk can serve as a huge storage shelf.
STARBOARD GUEST STATEROOM
Across the hall and forward on the starboard side is the spacious and comfortable guest stateroom. It has a custom mattress (full size) with overhead bookshelves on one side. There is an oversize drawer along with storage under the bed. There is a teak bookshelf, a makeup/vanity desk, a hanging locker and a cabinet with six drawers with a mirror. Outboard is two stainless steel opening portlights.
The guest head is forward of the starboard guest stateroom with independent door access, so it is available for all passengers aboard. The single basin sink is below the mirrored vanity. The toilet is a fresh water Vacuflush. The standup shower has a bi-fold door and a built-in.
The master stateroom is all the way forward and features a queen-size island berth. This room provides full beam accommodations and is set up for comfort and convenience. Storage throughout is impressive! There are three hanging lockers, (12) large drawers and the bed lifts up to provide access to a large compartment under the berth. There are four stainless steel opening ports and two overhead hatches giving plenty of light and ventilation.
On the port side there is also an en-suite head with sink counter, mirrored medicine cabinet above, Vacuflush fresh water toilet, stand up stall shower with bi-fold door and molded seat.
Forward and up from the saloon/galley area is the raised pilothouse, the operations center of Klassy Kady. She is outfitted for long distance travel offshore and is equipped with the necessities for safe and efficient piloting. The instruments are positioned within easy reach of the helm. The captain will enjoy the Ultra-Leather Stidd helm seat (with built-in Grid controls for the chart plotters on the starboard arm).
Guests can enjoy the view facing forward on the large and comfortable L-shaped settee (covered with Sunbrella). The settee also converts to a double berth when needed.
There are welded aluminum Dutch weathertight doors port and starboard providing easy access to the side decks and boat deck. Large opening windows port and starboard and two stainless steel opening ports in the aft bulkhead. The large reverse raked windows allow an incredible view forward and the forward dash helm was completely reworked in 2018 with new navigation and communications display locations carefully planned for ease of viewing and proximity of reach for easy course adjustments underway.
The Kadey Krogen 48 North Sea is rugged looking and has an appropriate stature with a tall bow that will cleave the waves and offer a dry ride in most sea conditions. The ground tackle arrangement includes a Maxwell horizontal windlass with new 7/16” chain and a self-launching 105 lb. Mantus anchor. The bow pulpit secures two separate anchors on individual rollers. Shore power connections and a seawater washdown provide extra convenience in this area. The deck is uncluttered with two opening hatches above the master stateroom. Forward of the pilothouse windows is a built-in seat locker area with cushions (faded) that provide a great place to relax at anchor or underway in the right conditions.
The inflatable dinghy and outboard are stowed on the boat deck landing which is above the cockpit/saloon and behind the pilothouse. You can access this area from the port side of the pilothouse up a short ladder with teak treads. With the dinghy launched you have a tremendous deck area available to enjoy.
The flybridge has been redesigned ergonomically so that all the switches/ sightlines are clear. There is an additional helm chair on the port bench so that Co-Captains can both see over the bow. New 12 volt and USB outlets have been installed here if you want to operate a PC or tablet. There is Fusion stereo for entertainment. The solar panels are immediately forward of the flybridge and mostly hidden from view.
A short distance down via steps through the large opening hatch forward in the saloon welcomes you to a very practical and well laid out engine room. The John Deere main engine can be serviced on all sides. ABT TRAC hydraulic stabilizers are installed forward and outboard. The ABT 12 HP 24V bow thruster has its own Mastervolt charger. Racor fuel filters for the main engine and generator are positioned for easy access and this machinery space. There is also an ESI Fuel polishing system to insure clean diesel fuel delivery. Oil changes have been regularly conducted per oil analysis vs. time using the Reverso oil change system, clean oil supplemented by the secondary off engine oil filter (1-micron polishing). To meet fresh water demands, a Custom 40 gallons/hour water maker is ready for action. The Raritan 20-gallon water heater (new 2016) makes sure you can enjoy the shows. For safety, a Fireboy automatic fire suppression system is mounted and there is an alarm system for bilge high water and loss of cooling water. Four new very bright LED’s give excellent lighting throughout.
