The Krogen 39 benefits from the experience that went into her larger siblings before her. With proper outfitting, the 39 is capable of ocean-crossing voyages and is ideal for the couple who wants to "get away from it all" for a month or a lifetime.  The 39 will also accommodate an occasional guest couple to share the adventure.

Both old salt and the newcomer alike will appreciate Krogen's proven track record building supremely-capable and practical boats. Quality comes from Krogen Yacht's long-time immersion in the business, now with a second generation of boat-builders perfecting the art and science of building trawlers.

The Krogen 39's tri-level layout provides plenty of privacy and entertaining possibilities wherever you look, and each living space is just steps away from the next. Ship-like features abound from stem to stern, from seacocks to silverware, and every square foot is put to good use.

Design and Safety

The Krogen 39 is a Pure Full-Displacement (PFD) yacht, slipping effortlessly through the water at its designed hull speed of approximately 8 knots.  Cruisers looking for range, efficiency, comfortable accommodations, solid sea-keeping and great looks will find much to like in the Krogen 39.  Designed to sleep two in luxury and four when guests come to call, the Krogen 39 is a well-found and unpretentious mini-ship that will get you there - comfortably, safely and reliably.

The Pure Full Displacement hull form has a larger positive stability range than a planing or semi-displacement vessel, making it well suited for rough offshore seas.  She is equipped with Pacific Marine welded watertight exterior doors (Dutch type in the Pilothouse) and hatches that increase seaworthiness, as does generous freeboard and substantial reserve buoyancy.  A full keel protects the running gear from impact damage and contributes to directional stability in a seaway.  Exterior railings and bulwarks are high and stout, and handholds are located throughout the yacht's interior for added personal security.  Finally, the Krogen 39 is an honest 39-footer, measured on deck from stem to stern, not from bow pulpit to swim platform. In fact, the Krogen 39 is 43 feet overall measured by the standards of some other boat builders.


For sailors moving to a powerboat, the Krogen 39 will delight with its ability to maintain an 8-knot cruising speed in any direction to the wind.  By contrast, a former planing-powerboat owner will feel relaxed and refreshed by the absence of harsh motions and multi-directional accelerations.  The Krogen 39's ride is gentle and easy, soothing the soul and helping captain and crew unwind and enjoy life afloat.

The Krogen 39 is renown for its quiet operation with a well-insulated engine room, modest horsepower and vibration-absorbing driveline. The John Deere diesel will delight the thrifty captain with its miserly fuel consumption, burning fewer than 3 gallons of fuel per hour at cruise, and resulting in a small yacht with a cruising range of 3,000 nautical miles.

The 39 answers its helm responsively, turning in about one-and-a-half boat lengths with just 4.5 turns of the wheel lock-to-lock. Visibility is unobstructed over the bow.  


Heavily built in preparation for the vagaries of the sea, including grounding loads and impact resistance, the Krogen 39's hull is solid fiberglass from the keel to 6 inches above the waterline. To help prevent osmotic blistering, and to make for more perfect, mirror-smooth finish, high-strength vinylester resin is used in the skin coat of fiberglass adjacent to the gelcoat. Building the bottom of the hull out of solid fiberglass also contributes to increased weight-derived stability for improved seaworthiness, as does lead ballast encapsulated in the keel. PACIFIC DANCER, being a 2006 model features an added benefit to the already high strength-solid hull construction with layers of Kevlar added in the final phase of hull lamination for high-impact protection! 

Above the waterline, composite sandwich construction insulates against noise and temperature,  retains great strength and stiffness at reduced weight which improves stability. Airex PVC structural foam core used in the hull sides is especially forgiving under impact, while Divinycell closed-cell foam core is used in the deckhouse and decks. The hull-to-deck joint is bonded with death-grip polyurethane adhesive. Some 2,000 pounds of lead ballast is added to increase stability by lowering the VCG (vertical center of gravity), creating a vessel with the powerful range of stability needed in heavy weather.


The heart of any trawler has got to be the pilothouse.  The Krogen 39's is properly ship-like, with lots of teak trim and paneling, including a teak-and-holly sole, a centerline teak-spoked wheel, a rudder-angle indicator and a clean, uncluttered instrument panel to keep tabs on that John Deere 4045, purring away below decks. Sightlines are excellent, with the big windows affording an excellent all-around view outside the yacht -  perfect for nighttime and open-ocean steaming. The yacht's high bow eliminates the necessity for a Portuguese bridge, creating an open bridge design that maximizes usable space topside. 

A pilot's settee aft of the helm area, raised a respectable 36 inches off the deck, affords a great view of the proceedings for visitors, who will feel comfortable enough in their perch to make free with piloting tips to the skipper. At 72 inches long, it will also double as a guest berth when pulled out. Watertight welded Dutch doors lead to the side decks, and the salt breeze they conjure up when left latched open is a welcome feature in warmer climes.  While closed and dogged down, those watertight doors will keep the green water on the outside where it belongs, especially in extreme conditions.

A large cabinet to port, just aft of the companionway and the electrical service panel, both easy to get to and use when needed, but unobtrusive when not. Attention to detail shows in the holding tank level indicator panel, the teak electronics console with removable face for convenient maintenance accessibility, and the red/white combination overhead and panel lights that permit nighttime running without loss of night vision.


A ladder leads from the cockpit up to the boatdeck/flybridge, which is tucked aft and above the pilothouse. The center-line helm seat is flanked by molded two-person seats offering a view of the horizon is intoxicating, especially from such a high perspective.  This is a truly awesome outdoor sky lounge. While not in use, the flybridge has a Sunbrella snap down cover for protection from the elements. 

The aft deck is huge, big enough perhaps to hold a dance on while you are at anchor with tender at the ready...The 500-pound capacity mast-and-boom has a power winch to hoist and launching of the tender.  The mast is Tabernacled, able to be easily lowered for maintenance or accommodate boathouse berthing.   

Engine room

The walk-in engine room, accessed through a tall door leading from the companionway forward, is the only one you're likely to find on a yacht of this size. Being able to walk in to the engine room means there are no hatches to lift (or fall on your head). There's 72 inches of headroom in the forward area under the pilot house where the engine is situated, and a workbench makes at-sea maintenance seem more like comfortably working in one's garage.

The single 135 hp John Deere 4045 diesel (a de-rated tractor engine at heart, should last practically forever) leaves plenty of room to get around for routine maintenance. The engine room continues aft under the salon, leaving plenty of room for access to the generator.  This is an ideal dry storage area as well for deck chairs, coolers, dry good, anything you name. They will all fit with room to spare in this cavernous space. This also means there's always room for installing additional machinery if desired by an owner.

Deck plates are easily removed for bilge access, and they provide a comfortable flat working surface. The perforated insulation covering panels make for a neat, ship-like appearance, and the area is very accommodating for the do-it-yourself mechanic.


Teak stairs lead from the pilothouse down to the cabin's companionway. Headroom and overall space is exceptionally generous, in keeping with the builder's design acumen and emphasis on creating an exceptionally open, comfortable living environment. As in the rest of the yacht, great emphasis is placed on natural light and cross ventilation.

Laid out to sleep a couple in comfort and style, the forward stateroom is proportioned like that of the average 45-footer's. It boasts a queen-sized island bed, which is a full 78 inches long. It raises easily to reveal a huge storage area. His-and-hers hanging lockers hold two seasons' worth of clothes. There's a dressing table with mirror and drawers, reading lights and receptacles, a generous 80 inches of headroom, five side ports and a 20-inch opening hatch overhead make for a pleasant stateroom for her voyaging owners.  

The head is just aft to starboard, and it sports an enclosed shower, a Vacuflush toilet (with tank level monitor panel) on a raised platform and sink with vanity and storage, and nicely tooled fiberglass panels for easy cleanup.


Anyone moving down from a larger yacht will appreciate all the headroom - 82 inches - and the natural light and ample ventilation from the big opening windows surrounding the 39's salon. The opening windows are fitted with teak-framed screens, and the watertight doors and hatches help keep things dry and secure inside. Three steps down from the pilothouse, and just inside the aft deck through the Pacific Marine welded weatherproof door, we find a 75-inch sofa to port, which could easily be converted to a double berth when needed.  A desk with shelves is just forward. Opposite to starboard is an L-shaped settee with a custom built fold-out table that will seat five comfortably.

Forward in the galley, functionally laid out with its U-shaped counter-top, three-burner gas stove with oven, large stainless sink, large refrigerator, louvered cabinet doors, and drawers fitted with proper stops to prevent spills offshore.

For the nautically obsessed among us, there are a pair of salty-looking 12" opening stainless portholes. To ensure cruising endurance, you'll find an abundance of storage space under the settee and dinette.  

Creature comforts are kept assured with the Hurricane diesel hydronic heating system!

Aft deck

Back aft is another complete living area- the Krogen 39's generously proportioned back porch!  The overhead deck's overhang keeps you protected from the elements.  A 33-inch-high bulwarks all-around will protect you from falling overboard, making the Krogen topsides a decidedly practical, safe and fun environment for the whole family. Huge scuppers will drain the deck quickly of any green water that finds its way onboard.  Integrated stainless hawse holes with cleat horns are fitted in either stern quarter. A transom door leads out to the full swim platform.

The lazzarette, reached via a deeply guttered 28-inch-square hatch cut in the teak deck, offers yet more storage room in smoothly finished, all- white bilges. The wide rudder board which supports the top of the rudder post, includes stainless rudder stops to keep the steering angles within preset limits.

Wide side decks, bulwarks and 1-1/4" stainless railing (with an intermediate lifeline), mostly over 30 inches high leads forward to the anchor pulpit, fitted with two anchor chutes, a chain stopper, anchor cleat and windlass. The fine, gritty nonskid atop the trunk cabin does its job and looks attractive to boot. One thing that really separates the men from the boys in this trawler club is the 7'8" freeboard forward, which is a good two feet higher than the average 39-foot convertible. This is just one measure of seaworthiness that Krogen takes as seriously as it does your family's security at sea.

Take to Sea with assurance 

With so much attention paid to the countless details that constitute a fine cruising yacht, PACIFIC DANCER can be counted to get you to your destination in a relaxed and refreshed frame of mind. Built above all for safety and comfort, the Krogen 39 will please with its long range, excellent economy of operation, reliable engineering and seaworthy open-ocean cruising capability. If substance means everything, and pretense is to be dispensed with, this Krogen 39 should be at the top of your list.
