Olympia is a 2014 Kadey Krogen 55 Expedition yacht. She is offered for sale by her original owner who has meticulously maintained her. Olympia’s spacious interior, storage and ease of boarding/disembarking make her an excellent live aboard, full-time cruising vessel. In addition to the port and starboard boarding doors at cockpit sole level, Olympia has two port and starboard access points on the bow and two more port and starboard access points on the Portuguese bridge. The walk-in, full height engine room has three accesses: primarily through a full size door in the guest head, through two hatches in the saloon sole and down a short flight of steps through the lazarette. Her owner has cruised her extensively from the Bahamas (including Eleuthera and the Exumas) to Maine.
She is ready to take you cruising coastal waters or crossing the ocean to explore new ports of call abroad.
Olympia is an excellent vessel for the active owner operator couple. Her generous size offers spacious quarters for full time live aboard, entertaining and hosting guests. Guests will appreciate the private accommodations with separate head.
Her all cherry interior layout features two staterooms: a forward, full beam master with ensuite full head and a spacious guest room with twin beds. Another full head is a step across the companionway from the guest stateroom. The walk-in engine room has stand up head room for easier service and inspections with central access to both engines. The large, upper level pilothouse has 360-degree visibility and is equipped with two Llebroc helm chairs and a refrigerator/freezer. The spacious entry level saloon is wrapped in warm cherry and features two custom leather club chairs, an L-shaped settee covered in Ultraleather, a bookcase, a cherry hi-lo table that opens to easily seat eight for dinner and can be moved outside for al fresco dining, a 57-bottle wine refrigerator and copious storage. The large, L-shaped gourmet galley is ideal for preparing meals for two or for a crowd. The galley is equipped with top of the line, full size appliances, including a Jenn Air refrigerator with French doors (including an ice maker), GE Profile microwave/convection oven, Blue Star four burner propane range, GE Profile dishwasher, granite countertops, double rolling trash containers, and a large stainless steel sink.

Cockpit: The cockpit provides a very spacious, covered outdoor space for relaxing with friends, a cocktail or enjoying a meal. Enter the cockpit from the aft swim platform (fitted with three staples for ease of boarding a tender or returning from a snorkel trip) or comfortably from the dock through the port or starboard boarding door. You have hatch access down a short ladder to the lazarette below. There are two 50-amp shore power connections powered by a Glendinning retraction system. A hot and cold freshwater cockpit shower is built into the transom. A fresh water washdown inlet makes deck cleaning a pleasure. Two fuel fills for the port forward and aft tanks are located in the cockpit to port and two fuel fills for the starboard forward and aft tanks are located in cockpit to starboard. The boat deck may be accessed from a ladder through a sliding hatch on the port side of the cockpit. Access to the interior is through her weather-tight, painted aluminum Diamond SeaGlaze double saloon door. An accordion- pleated, tinted screen allows soft breezes to flow through the boat without the inconvenience of insects.
Saloon: The full beam, airy, high ceiling saloon is surrounded by five generous sized, opening Diamond SeaGlaze windows (with screens) covered with built-in custom cherry wood blinds set under cherry valances. There is a comfortable Ultraleather-covered L-shaped settee (with generous storage underneath) to port and two custom leather club chairs to starboard, perfectly positioned to view the 46” flat screen Smart TV. The TV can be raised and lowered by the Aritex lift into the cabinet behind the settee when not in use. A movable high-low cherry table sits in front of the settee, ready to serve an intimate meal for two or can be opened to entertain dinner guests. The table is easily moved into the cockpit to enjoy al fresco dining. Olympia’s spacious interior is bright and contemporary with satin finished teak and spruce floors. A bookcase on the aft starboard bulkhead provides two shelves for displaying books. A granite countertop (lit from below) houses a cabinet with a built in Garmin VHF radio and several small shelves for storage. A 57-bottle wine refrigerator with controls for both red and white wines is within easy reach. To starboard, two cabinets with sliding doors behind the club chairs provide ample storage. An outstanding feature of this late model Expedition, and the first of this design layout, is the curving cherry staircase to the pilothouse. The treaded steps have household sized risers and a gorgeous solid handrail that allows visualization of part of the pilothouse through the saloon as well as exceptional safety and stability while underway. A huge cabinet under the steps provides storage for large items. Two wall sconces enhance the lighting provided by numerous LED lights mounted into the soft, covered headliner.
Galley: The exceptionally large L-shaped galley was designed with the gourmet cook fond of entertaining in mind. All of the essentials including a deep basin stainless steel sink and Jenn Air French door refrigerator/freezer with icemaker wait to assist you. There are overhead cabinets and large drawers, all with ample space for glasses, plates, cups, utensils and silverware. A custom spice cabinet organizes your spices within easy reach and a bookshelf holds important cookbooks. For preparing meals, there is a large, GE Profile microwave/convection oven and a Blue Star four-burner propane range and oven. A GE Profile dishwasher makes clean up a breeze. There is additional storage to port for pots, pans and other galley equipment, all within easy reach on rollout top and bottom shelves. The galley is further enhanced with a lit “curio” cabinet that will show off your treasures on a glass shelf. A good-sized cabinet below will come in handy for bottles, cans and other galley essentials. Two other cabinets to starboard will hold other supplies. The top cabinet is vented to accommodate a Blu-Ray disc player, Direct TV receiver and other electronic entertainment devices.
Pilothouse: The raised second level, comfortable pilothouse covered in cherry with a high ceiling offers excellent all-around visibility from the two, multi-positional Llebroc Ultraleather helm chairs. Custom built in cherry wood blinds provide light regulation and privacy. An Ultraleather settee pulls out to become a full- size berth. Ample storage exists under the settee for chart books and other assorted equipment. A large cherry covered refrigerator with small freezer not only provides nice counter space but also eliminates the need to go below for a cool drink or snack when underway. In addition to the twin throttles, there is an impressive assortment of user-friendly Garmin navigation/communication electronics with controls for the bow thruster, engines, and stabilizers, all within arm’s reach. The helm station safely provides monitoring of the boat’s systems and convenient access to the autopilot, either manually or with the handheld, wireless remote. Breaker switches for the Maxwell windlass, engine controls, Kahlenberg horn, Ritchie compass, windshield wipers, navigation lights and monitors are installed behind a tinted glass door in an easily accessed panel to starboard with clearly labeled breakers. Olympia is equipped with AIS that both transmits and receives. The floors are covered with a foam green carpet (2017) for comfort. Two painted aluminum Dutch doors on either side open outboard to allow access to the boat deck, Portuguese bridge and bow. A large stainless steel, destroyer style wheel provides maximum safety for steering. Temperature is controlled via a dedicated air-conditioning system for the pilothouse (12,000 BTUs). In settled weather, the Dutch doors and four large screened windows can be opened for fresh air. Port and starboard chart lights provide perfect lighting for night reading of charts while LED lights mounted into the soft headliner provide adequate light for reading or boat chores. Two large drawers and cabinets on either side of the helm will accommodate all your navigation equipment, including charts, books, binoculars, remotes and laptops when not in use.
Master Stateroom: The comfortable master stateroom features an island queen with Tempur-Pedic mattress, four large drawers and deep storage under the bed, which can be easily raised on its two gas struts. Two hanging lockers – one to port, the other to starboard and two drawers to starboard with a cabinet below provide storage in addition to a dresser with mirror and lights above. There are small cabinets surrounding the bed with ample storage. Two wall sconces on either side of the bed provide subtle lighting. Large Ocean Air hatches above the bed provide refreshing breezes at anchor. Each hatch has a screen that pulls from one side. If darkness is what you want, a shade cover that matches the headliner pulls out from the other side. On deck, custom hatch covers that are locked in place protect the tinted hatch lenses. An ensuite head completes the comfort of the master stateroom. A Dometic MasterFlush fresh water electric toilet eliminates the need for a foot pedal. The Corian sink is surrounded by a granite countertop, with a cherry cabinet underneath. An overhead mirror with three lights above is framed in cherry. The large shower is enclosed with a bi-fold door, has a seat and a well-pressurized hand-held showerhead with several options for shower intensity. Overhead LED lights provide excellent lighting throughout the master stateroom and head.
Guest stateroom and head: The large guest stateroom to starboard amidships consists of two twin beds, both covered in Sunbrella fabric. There is a hanging locker to starboard with a large overhead cabinet and a desk with pencil drawer, two supply drawers and a file drawer. Ample storage is provided - beneath the beds, in a bank of five drawers under each bed and in a cabinet set between the beds. A full-size and separate Bosch clothes washer and clothes dryer hide behind a set of louvered double doors. The large and airy guest head is a step across the companionway to port. It boasts a full shower with seat, well- pressurized handheld shower with several options for shower intensity and a bi-fold door. A large cabinet over the Dometic MasterFlush fresh water electric toilet, a mirrored, double door, lit cabinet over the Corian sink and granite countertop with several cabinets below provide household-type storage. Well placed, non-opening port lights provide natural light.
Engine Room: The six-compartment engine room can be entered by descending the steps behind the watertight door in the guest head, through a double hatch in the saloon sole or through the lazarette. The twin Tier 3 John Deere engines are housed in their own watertight engine space, mounted on either side of the centerline, making maintenance an easy task. The aft port section of this space houses a Northern Lights 16 kW generator. The generator (with Sound Shield) is easily accessed from both its front and back. There are four aluminum fuel tanks, two forward and aft to port and two forward and aft to starboard. The port fuel tank is plumbed to the generator and all four tanks are plumbed to the ESI fuel polisher/transfer system with supply and return. Two 250-gallon stainless steel water tanks are located to port and starboard in the third engine room compartment. The engine room is protected by a Seafire fire suppression system. Newly installed Lifeline AGM batteries are divided into three banks: 16 house (June, 2018), 4 engine start (February 2019), and 1 generator start (October, 2018). The 16 house batteries are housed in their own watertight compartment. A Magnum inverter/charger offers faster charging of the batteries. At the base of the steps resides a 30-gallon Torrid water heater that provides a seemingly endless supply of hot water. A workbench with sink simplifies engine room chores. The stabilizers, ESI fuel polishing system and Racor filters are easily visualized, as are the Cruisair air conditioning compressors. The Reverso oil change system is located on the port side of the machinery space, just below the generator. A large container on the aft starboard side houses the Glendinning shore power cable retraction system for the two 75’cables.
Lazarette: Accessed down a short ladder via the cockpit hatch, the well-lit lazarette provides convenient storage space for spares, tools, fenders and cleaning supplies, fishing gear, luggage and whatever else you can think of. The steering assembly is easily visualized, as is the hydraulic heat exchanger to port. The engine room may be accessed through the lazarette.
Foredeck/Portuguese Bridge: The foredeck on the Krogen 55' Expedition is raked high off the water making for a dry, comfortable ride. The twin anchor pulpit safely holds the Super Max and Delta anchors that are powered by a Maxwell VWC 3500 hydraulic windlass. Each anchor has 300’ of marked 1⁄2” chain rode. The Delta anchor is monitored with a digital chain counter at the helm station. Chain locker access is through the painted Freeman hatch on deck. Two shore power, cable TV and dock water connections are installed on the starboard foredeck; fresh and salt-water wash down inlets are found to port. The Portuguese bridge provides access to the port and starboard wing stations. From these stations, the engines can be started and stopped, the boat steered, and the bow thruster engaged. The wing stations are covered with custom green canvas. Two large custom cushions on top of each large bow locker to port and starboard complete the beauty and utility of the foredeck. One can easily embark and debark the vessel from access points on the bow and Portuguese bridge to either port or starboard. These alternate access points are invaluable when only fixed docks are available in marinas. A portable, four-step Todd resin ladder resides on the bow to make this process even more convenient.
Boat Deck: Proceeding on either side of the Portuguese bridge leads you to the large boat deck. The boat deck houses the Steelhead 1250 crane (with remote control) for launching and retrieving the tender that is mounted on two custom chocks with one bow and two stern tie downs. The tender is a seven passenger, 2015 center console 13’ AB Oceanus VST with a newly painted (October 2018) fiberglass bottom. The tender is powered by a recently serviced (2018) 60 hp Yamaha engine and has been actively used. When not in use, the tender is covered in green Sunbrella. With the tender launched, the boat deck provides a large outdoor space for sunbathing and/or entertaining. There is a bank of cabinets behind the pilothouse bulkhead. A large barbecue grill and a Fusion stereo with two speakers enhance entertaining. The grill (covered in custom green canvas) sits atop a cabinet providing storage for cooking utensils and cleaning supplies. A covered sink with hot and cold water adjacent to the grill makes for easy cleanup. Two propane tanks reside in a neighboring cabinet. A complete set of extra lines and other equipment are conveniently and easily stored in another large cabinet. A sliding hatch provides access to the steps leading to the cockpit below. Two aft starboard side rails were refitted (2017) for easy removal to facilitate deploying/retrieving the tender.
