With more than 600 hulls built to date, Kadey-Krogen Yachts has a fanatical following. In June, 185 owners and fans gathered in Newport, Rhode Island, to celebrate the builder’s 40 anniversary.

Owners and fans of the seaworthy, long-range trawlers enjoyed a three-day festival at Fort Adams State Park packed with food, games and a parade of 38 Kadey-Krogens through Newport Harbor.

This video shows the festivities:

Kadey-Krogen Yachts started building trawlers in 1977. You can read more about their current lineup and the Newport rendezvous in Soundings’ December 2017 issue.
