Mariah: Designed by pair of engineers (Father & Son) whom spared no expense or attention to detail to ensure Mariah can go anywhere. They completed the American Great Loop in 2018, logging almost 6000 miles, everything about this boat was perfect for the trip as a team. Father & Son, Husband & Spouse, any couple or single handed this boat is a dream to pilot. Bow and Stern thrusters and with twin screws, plus this boat is controllable from multiple locations making docking, locking, anchoring dream come true easy. Plot your course on the Navigation PC and send it to the Furuno Autopilot with one click ease and your boat will go anywhere you want.
Wanting to travel in comfort the owners of this vessel opt'd for two gensets and 5 air conditioning systems. The bigger genset can handle all 5 AC systems running while leisurely traveling long anywhere on a hot summer day. For night time comfort running the smaller genset will help fuel economy while keeping up to 3 AC systems running. Outdoor speakers and a Sonos whole boat sound system enables you to stream music everywhere on the boat and have a party where ever you drop anchor. Both staterooms have big flat screen TV's and the main Salon features a retractable 42" Flat screen with integrated Sonos Soundbar for surround sound movie entertainment or soft soothing music while you dine in the main salon or alfresco on the aft deck. Living in this always connected world Mariah includes a whole boat WiFi System with a Range Extender enabling it to stay connected miles away from a WiFi hotspot. The WiFi system is your gate into the Sonos Music system using an app to control/direct what music is played where. The Flybridge has an expensive hard top option that makes piloting the boat or entertaining so much fun with the intense sun/heat typically found in tropical climates. Speakers mounted in the hard top ensure a continuous stream of background entertainment.
Maintenance is a breeze in this walk about engine room. With both engines and gensets interconnected to a Reverso Oil Management system, changing the oil is as simple as opening a valve and pumping the old oil out and new oil in. Air filters and oil filters are easily reached for replacement AND the engine room features a custom workbench making for a great place to open/rebuild any other component that needs to be worked on. Fuel management is a breeze with BiG sight gauges on each fuel tank and a fuel transfer/polishing system to keep your fuel clean and ready to use. A custom designed autofill system makes taking on freshwater into Mariah's tanks as simple as pushing a button which starts the fill process and then automatically stops once the tanks are full. No longer do you have to fuss with freshwater fill plates, sticking a hose, in and waiting for the tank to fill up. While Mariah does not have an existing water maker this team planned ahead and had a raw water intake and fill line to the tanks installed so installation will be easy for those who desire to add a water maker with no hassles.
So why is the father & son team selling such a great boat....to build another Kadey Krogen! They enjoyed the building experience so much and appreciate the Kadey Krogen quality that they decided to do it again with a KK55. Many of the suggestions from this pair of engineers have gone back to KK management for consideration and incorporation in future builds. KK valued their feedback and they LOVE working with KK on new design ideas .
Mariah was featured in our December 2018 Navaid with a story detailing her father and son Great Loop trip.
