A true full displacement, long range trawler, she is ideal for a cruising couple. Lady Di has travelled the US west coast from Mexico to Alaska and now rests at her dock on the San Francisco Bay.
Several Krogen 39’s have gone on extensive passages, with standard fuel topped off and running at 6 knots she has a realistic range of over 4,000 miles!
Her looks are timeless, inside and out. She has been maintained in beautiful condition by her current (second) owners who always send in oil samples after each change to make sure her John Deere main engine is healthy. Very few production trawlers can boast a reputation of being an easy vessel for a couple to manage and look after by themselves, the Krogen 39 fits this description.
Boarding aft (from the swim step or dock) you enter the cockpit which is covered overhead and includes teak decking underfoot. There are side decks port and starboard that lead up to the foredeck. On top, the flybridge has a folding canvas Bimini top with outboard seating on each side. The boat deck is aft with the dinghy mounted fore/aft and the mast and boom provides antenna mounting and serves as the dinghy launching davit. You access the boat deck / flybridge from a ladder in the cockpit.
Entering through the saloon door you will appreciate the fantastic visibility to the outside through teak framed opening windows and will be greeted by a warm teak interior. There are built in settees port and starboard with comfortable Ultrasuede upholstery and a teak parquet floor. The galley is forward to starboard lined with white Corian counters and white laminate verticals to keep it light and easier to clean. There is an opening portlight outboard to provide both a view and ventilation.
The engine room is under the saloon and has stand up 6’ plus headroom as you enter and plenty of access to move around once inside. There is a work table area with room for storage of oil, filters, tools, etc. Neat installations of machinery and hose runs are evident.
Moving forward and up some steps to the pilothouse you pass an outboard locker with a louvered door that conceals the combo clothes washer/dryer. The pilothouse has an impressive view making operations underway very easy to manage and includes doors to the outside decks port and starboard. There is a wide and comfortable settee with a table aft and the forward nav/com dash has a large teak steering wheel on centerline. The flooring is teak and holly and the rich teak joinery in the pilothouse is complemented by white surfaces and white overhead with an opening hatch.
Inside and down some curved steps from the saloon deck is the head and shower to starboard. The full beam master with island queen sized walk around bed is surrounded by teak lockers and doors. Varnished teak ceilings outboard combine with white laminate to make this room feel spacious and an overhead hatch plus outboard opening portlights provide ventilation.
Lady Di is ready to go cruising and priced to move quickly. One last observation from Bill Parlatore in his PassageMaker article when she was new, “You really can’t get much smaller and still have a vessel with the range and capacity for heading across an ocean in comfort.” Please contact the listing broker for a visit as all showings are by appointment only.
