"If your idea of cruising is heading off for the long haul at a leisurely pace in a rig that easily can accommodate and be handled by the two of you, have we got a boat for you-the Krogen Manatee 36' from Kadey-Krogen Yachts. This is one of those cruising machines that makes you consider shucking the desk, the car payments, and your paneled basement for life afloat in a world where the water is clear and so is your conscience." ~ Boating
With upgraded electronics, a new saloon complete with built in L-shaped settee and significant other upgrades, Cygnet is ready to cruise comfortably now. If you are in the market for a proven coastal cruiser and you are not concerned about speed, the Kadey-Krogen Manatee was built just for this purpose and Cygnet is a very nice example of this model.

"Once you see the Manatee you will recognize it thereafter. It's the one that looks like a spunky, off duty tugboat just aching for a cruise. Salty. Agile. At ease with the sea. The Manatee is a .... breed of coastal cruiser that cuts through pretense and concentrates on performance and comfort.
Manatee was designed and constructed, for seafarers who prefer an able, fine-honed, friendly craft to a frivolous speedster.
A boat that can stretch the horizons and discover new ports. With 23,000 lbs. displacement and only a 3'2" draft, she can explore rivers, bays and sounds. With a range of 1,100 miles, she can embark from the Bahamas, circle the Great Lakes, crisscross the Chesapeake or meander Puget Sound and the San Francisco Delta area.
Under way or anchor down, this is a cruiser you can call "home." With pride " ~ Kady Krogen Manufacturers Brochure
"The Manatee Hull and Cabin Sides are of fiberglass sandwich construction with closed-cell PVC foam core; heavy hand layup using mat and roving. This construction is 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 buoyancy and shock, sound and temperature insulator. It rides quiet, increases impact strength and eliminates condensation build-up inside the hull." ~ Kady Krogen Manatee Manufacturer's Brochure
The sea trial was held in 15 knots of wind in calm water.

It offers 360-degree visibility and is completely enclosed via windows forward and roll-up/removable curtains port, starboard and aft with side deck doors port and starboard. Custom privacy/wind curtains surround the entire aft boat deck. Forward of the pilothouse are two large storage lockers with a built-in seating area between them.
The Salon is entered from the extra large covered aft deck through teak double doors. There is a movable credenza with L-shaped fixed settee to port with storage underneath. A desk/side table is to starboard with twin bucket seats and foot rests to starboard. This area also features:
"Accessible is a keyword in every Krogen craft. The Engine hatch opens wide for entry below deck. Plenty of room and working space for fine tuning or routine maintenance." ~ Kady Krogen Manufacturers Brochure
The U-shaped galley is located forward of the salon. A pass through with teak slatted bi-fold doors allows the galley a view out the back doors and with the window to port it remains bright and airy.

One of the outstanding features of the Krogen Manatee is the large stateroom, located forward, with a queen size berth, large "walk-in" size hanging locker, bulit-in bookcase, mirrored vanity and generous drawer storage and cavernous storage under the bed.
