The hull and cabin sides of the Krogen 42′ were built of fiberglass sandwich construction with closed-cell PVC foam core; heavy hand lay-up using mat and roving. This construction remains one of the most enduring and safest afloat. (Closed-cell PVC foam core does not deteriorate or absorb water.) The composite structure serves both as a buoyancy material and shock, sound and temperature insulator. It rides quiet, increases impact strength and eliminates condensation build-up inside the hull.

Decks were built of a fiberglass sandwich construction with end-grain balsa core. The main deck offered a teak overlay and the boat deck was molded with a non-skid surface. (A teak overlay was available at the purchaser’s option.)

All joinery work, paneling, cabinetry, and beam caps were of fine teak. Countertops were topped with Formica. All lockers and closets were lined with teak veneer and Formica.

Aft Deck, Saloon, Galley and Pilothouse

The aft deck is fully covered by the boat deck making it the ideal place to enjoy al fresco dining, morning coffee or your favorite sundowner, and nighttime lighting is provided by overhead LED light.
