Kadey-Krogen has long had a gap in its lineup of long range cruisers right in the middle of the range between 48’ and 58’. Yes we know, they’ve had the 55’ expedition, but that was a distinctly different layout that met the needs of a much different customer. When the company set out to make the 52, it needed to respond to some very specific customer demands. Thus, this new model can be thought of more as a little sister to the 58’, than having anything in common with a 55’. But aside from the similarities, this boat will be thought of as no one’s little sister and will surely stand alone as a long range cruiser in its own right, and with its own mark on the world of distance voyaging.
