Hull Design

Designed by James Krogen, the KE52 combines classic, timeless style with exceptional seakeeping and efficiency. Her plumb stem, raised bow, and broad beam forward allow her to slice through the waves with ease while providing surprising space in her accommodations. Her low profile allows her to get under bridges as low as 15' and with a draft of just 4', she'll take you places most 50 footers won't. Her semi-displacment hull delivers trawler efficiency at displacement speeds with true cruise capabilities in the mid-to-upper teens. And her generous keel provides stability and protection for her twin 26x26 propellors.

Krogen Livability

Boarding a Krogen Express couldn't be easier with a large transom door and wide boarding gates on either side of the spacious, covered cockpit. Ample storage for lines, fenders, cleaning supplies, two folding bicycles and more is provided by the cavernous lazarette below. Entering the saloon through double, watertight aluminum doors, her owners are treated to an inviting cherry wood interior. Along with her sumptuous joinery, old world craftsmanship is obvious with the quality of her appointments and overall exceptional fit and finish. Legendary Krogen livability is evidenced by the large side windows and generous headroom along with the integral galley-up design. Two Norwegian Stressless chairs to port and an L-settee to starboard are perfectly situated for enjoying the built-in 24" TV.


Saloon Settee

Located to starboard, the comfortable L-shaped settee has storage beneath and a nice end table forward. The hi-lo table has leaves that fold out for expanded seating capacity and can be moved outside for dining al fresco. 


The 52's gourmet galley is located up where her chef can always be part of the action. She's well equipped for meal preparation with a 3-burner, Force 10 propane range, 14 cu. ft. refrigerator, GE microwave oven, and deep Elkay sink with pullout sprayer faucet. Neutral Corian countertops are elegant and easy to maintain and will complement any decor, and the raised section is ideal for serving the crew. A traditional round port light provides ventilation while abundant storage ensures a good home can be found for all provisions. Beneath the starboard side bookcase, the U-line ice maker frees up space in the ice box and ensures drinks will be well chilled.

Pilothouse Helm

The centerline helm console in the raised pilothouse is the place to operate AMUSANT when the weather is not kindly. The completely integrated Raymarine system includes video signal from two aft facing cameras, all within easy reach from the fine ultraleather Stidd helm chair. Enjoy the custom, handcrafted Cherry helm wheel. Controls for the dual trumpet Kahlenberg horns, three speed and intermittent Exalto wiper/washer system, Maxwell windlass, and Bennett trim tabs are all close at hand. Music is provided by an amplified AM/FM CD system. To starboard, a spacious counter for unfolding full size paper charts and two full size drawers

Pilothouse Settee

The pilothouse watch berth is elevated for optimal forward visibility, long enough for naps underway, and converts to a 3/4 double berth to accommodate overnight guests. A table provides a convenient work surface and wall mounted reading lamps make this an ideal location to retire with a good book. Above the settee, a color coordinated half hull model showcases her elegant lines and efficient, seaworthy form. Beneath the settee are several small lockers for equipment storage. High quality, weather-tight Dutch doors lead directly to the wide side decks while stairs to port of the settee allow convenient access to the flybridge.  High-tech, optically clear film on all pilothouse windows provides sun protection while inside mounted Textilene screens offer a measure of privacy.



Guest Stateroom

An L-settee that converts to a 3/4 double berth highlights the flexible nature of the guest stateroom, while the pullman berth provides additional sleeping capacity. Located inboard is a large desk with drawers. A deep hanging locker and huge drawers under the settee provide ample storage. Two port lights and a screened hatch overhead make the GSR light and airy while three wall-mounted lamps allow for reading at night. A full head, complete with stand-up shower, is located across the companionway.


Master Stateroom

A true queen island berth with a TempurPedic mattress is the centerpiece of the master stateroom. With over 7' of headroom and light provided by 4 ports and a large deck hatch, the MSR feels surprisingly generous for a motor yacht this size. Hanging lockers and smaller cubbies to port and starboard, 6 deep drawers under the berth, and a dresser with both drawers and shelved storage ensure her owners have ample room for their belongings. A power lift raises the berth to reveal cavernous storage beneath along with a dedicated battery bank for the windlass and bow thruster. The ensuite head features a molded fiberglass shower stall with a seat, Vacuflush head.


Flybridge & Boat Deck

A frameless venturi windscreen deflects air above the captain sitting in the comfortable, raised centerline Stidd helm chair.  Navigation support includes a helm station duplicate to the pilot house. The 4' open radar array and satellite TV dome are mounted on a sturdy but stylish aluminum spar-style. Shaded by a color coordinated Sunbrella bimini top, the L-settee with matching cushions provides ample seating for crew and guests and contains storage beneath for the extensive canvas package. Situated aft of the settee, the open boat deck will easily accommodate a set of folding teak chairs and serves as access to the color coordinated luxury tender. This is the ideal place to enjoy that cup of morning coffee or catch a beautiful evening sunset. The 11' A/B deluxe tender, with a raised console and seating for 4, is powered by a 25 h.p. Yamaha 4-stroke outboard motor and launched with the fully hydraulic davit.

Engine Room & Systems

An exceptional walk-in, stand-up engine room houses a pair of 440 hp Yanmar diesels which can be easily accessed all around. The engines are fired by dedicated Lifeline AGM starting batteries and drive through matched Twin Disc transmissions. Structure-born noise and vibration is well controlled with the standard Aqua Drive systems. The 12 kw Northern Lights (1220 hrs) genset sits on the centerline and is easily accessible. A Reverso system is connected to both engines, both transmissions, and the genset to make for easy fluid changes, while a fuel transfer pump makes equalizing the tanks a breeze. A fuel polishing system equipped with AC pump and 2 micron Racor filter provide the cleanest fuel possible to your engines. The water tanks and diesel fuel levels can be easily assessed with convenient sight glasses. An automatic fire suppression system, freshwater washdown, and storage for tools and supplies above and alongside the water tanks are additional features. Located in a separate spacious bilge area, away from the heat of the engine room, are the three CruiseAir reverse-cycle A/C systems. In the same compartment is a 20 gallon stainless steel water heater which is supplemented with heat from the main engines. Beneath the salon are the 2000 watt Mastervolt inverter, 80amp Mastervolt charger, 1,200 amp hour house battery bank, and Cablemaster drum storage. AMUSANT also includes an 8Kw Asea Power converter.
