Name: Intrepid
Fuel type
Hull material

The Krogen 38 Cutter was designed by Jim Krogen as his own personal sailboat for gunk holing in the shoal waters of Florida and the Bahamas.  She’s meant to be single or shorthanded for weeks at a time in a sailor’s paradise.

The interior is varnished teak, with easy maintenance, white battened overhead. Ten bronze opening port lights, 4 Bomar metal framed deck hatches, three deck prisms, four 4″ Dorade vents and 1 cabin fan provide excellent natural light & ventilation. There is a good mix of DC & AC lighting including courtesy lights to illuminate the teak and holly cabin sole on night sails.

The forward cabin has a double vee berth, port & starboard shelves, counter with sink, hanging locker, cabinetry, screened deck hatch, and two opening ports.

The head compartment is to port with a manual head & holding tank (deck discharge with by pass for direct pump out), separate shower stall, shower grate, independent shower sump pump, cabinet and storage shelves, and opening port.

The salon’s port dinette and starboard settee serve as comfortable double and single berths with storage behind and outboard. The teak table seats four adults. The starboard table adds two more.

The L-shaped galley to starboard has storage galore, double stainless steel sink, hot and cold pressure water, shore side water, with a Atlantic Marine 10 gallon, 110V AC/engine heated hot water heater, a large top load insulated ice box w/Isotherm Comact Classic Model 2501, 12V DC refrigeration (2014), a gimbaled, and three burner Hillerange propane stove w/oven.

The forward facing, fold-down navigation station is across from the galley in the aft stateroom.

The master stateroom is aft to port with a comfortable double, hanging locker, large mirror, counter wit sink and cabinetry.
