This one owner Jade Mist Green Krogen Express 52’, has cruised from Maine to the Abaccos, from Oslo to Turkey, with a complete tour of the Med & Adriatic Sea. She has cruised down the Rhine and out the Danube. AMUSANT is offered by her owner in London, in ‘cruise away’ condition. She is fully equipped including a complete suite of Raymarine electronics, Yacht controller for safer single hand operation and a fuel polishing system. AMUSANT will be sold with everything necessary to head down the Thames and across the Channel to your dream adventures on the European continent.
It has been a wonderful experience, and the owner would be happy to redeliver the boat to the Med for a new owner, any excuse!
Having purchased our Krogan 52 Express after only few years of fun on a 20 foot runabout – and then deciding to retirement and cruise Europe was quite a learning curve. One thing we learned immediately is how Mother Nature can change your well formulated plans in about five seconds. Part of the fun cruising through Europe is the crossing of borders, all of whom have their own culture, and what wonderful people we met in every port. The language barrier can be a little difficult at times, as we obviously did something wrong in a French lock, but to this day, have no idea why we were scolded so harshly! What we have learned from cruising on board AMUSANT for more than 2000 miles is that is better to take the time to stop and stare at every opportunity, because a passing glance will only make you wish you had slowed down for more. AMUSANT has been a fantastic yacht for our retirement dreams, and hope that her new owner will enjoy her just as much.
