Kadey Krogen 36 Manatee with Bow Thruster!
Today proud owners of the Manatee 36 enjoy the spacious liveability usually found only in a much larger craft. The thoughtful, innovative design provides convenience with comfort, complete with picture window views when seated in the salon.
Manatees offer plenty of natural ventilation to enjoy the sea breezes. Krogen Manatees are generous with storage, closet, cabinet and sleeping space. Interiors spaces feature the warmth of timeless teak, creating a fine home that takes to the sea.
This Krogen Manatee is in very nice condition. All of the teak wood work in the interior creates a beautiful décor in this boat. This 36 Manatee boasts the double stateroom layout which is highly desirable in these sought after vessels.
Most Krogen owners refer to their cockpits as back porches and if you've ever stepped aboard a Manatee 36 then you certainly understand why. The Manatee back porch is truly that! Opening the French doors from the saloon to the 8' X 12" cockpit (back porch), expands the living area substantually. This vessel also has a full enclosure included for the 'back porch" area.
The vessel has been well maintained and it’s quite evident when you take a walkthrough. Both main cabin and stateroom areas are in great condition with no visible signs of wear and tear.
All maintenance has been performed as needed including new installations of both AC units recently.
The Kadey Krogen Manatee 36’ was created to be a breed of coastal cruiser that cuts through pretense and concentrates on practicality and comfort.
Designed and constructed under the late James S. Krogen’s direction, the Krogen Manatee was created especially for seafarers who preferred an able, friendly craft to a frivolous speedster. The Manatee was and is a boat that can stretch horizons and discover new ports. With 23,000 lb. displacement and a 3’2″ draft, she can explore rivers, bays and sounds. With a range of roughly 1100 miles, she can embark for the Bahamas, circle the Great Lakes, Travel the Great Loop, crisscross the Chesapeake, or meander the Puget Sound.
Under way or anchor down, the Krogen Manatee is a cruiser that has logged many happy days and many happy miles for their proud owners.
The Manatee hull and cabin sides were all built of fiberglass sandwich construction with closed-cell PVC foam core, heavy hand lay-up using mat and roving. This construction remains one of the most enduring and safest afloat. (Closed-cell PVC foam core does not deteriorate or absorb water.) The composite structure serves both as a buoyancy material and shock, sound and temperature insulator. It rides quiet, increases impact strength and eliminates condensation build-up inside the hull. Decks were built with fiberglass sandwich construction with end-grain balsa core. All joinery work, paneling, and beam-caps are constructed of fine teak. Cabinets are all built of teak. Countertops are topped with Formica.
