With her graceful sweeping lines, pronounced bow and rugged profile, you can tell just from her looks that Wanderer’s Rest is an offshore capable yacht. Very few trawlers are as ideally suited for extended cruising as the Kadey Krogen 48 North Sea design.

With “go anywhere” range, the 48 glides through the water and provides a true “at home on any sea” waterfront traveling platform just as her builder advertises.

Her second owners have enjoyed her for over eight years and now Wanderer’s Rest is offered for sale in cruise-ready mode.

She has a popular widebody saloon/deck arrangement which merges forward through the galley and below to a spacious two stateroom, two head arrangement layout. On deck she is topped with a raised pilothouse and flybridge for underway operations and enjoys good outdoor living space forward, aft and aloft.

Quiet and comfortable underway and at rest, she is up to the challenge of exploring local and long-distance cruising adventures.

After six years of ownership, the time has come to pursue other activities.

In October 2022 she was hauled out at Washburn’s in Solomons Island, Maryland to complete a new bottom paint job and regular maintenance mechanical services.



You can board Wanderer’s Rest from the aft cockpit door via the swim platform (great when arriving by dinghy) or from the port cockpit or starboard side deck door. Wanderer’s Rest’s swim platform and cockpit also create a convenient hub for in-water sports such as diving or snorkeling. A recessed shore power cable (on electric spool) alongside fresh water taps connections are easily accessed on the cockpit starboard forward bulkhead against the house. Cockpit cap rails are Awlwood clear-coated, and the entire lower walking surfaces is decked with teak.  There is also a wing door on the starboard side to deflect the breeze when enjoying the cockpit. From the cockpit you can head aft to the swim platform for a dinghy adventure, forward to starboard via the side deck which transits past the pilothouse and up to the foredeck, or straight ahead into the saloon.
