Kadey-Krogen’s 40th Anniversary
From the docks at Rhode Island’s Fort Adams State Park, a single photo captures just 7 of 37 Kadey-Krogen yachts that gathered in Newport Harbor from June 29 to July 2. Like all Kadey-Krogen events, the clear emphasis was placed on community-building, be it through mansion and vineyard tours, sailboat racing on classic America’s Cup 12 Meters, dinners and dancing, or in the common thread of boat ownership. What made this event extra special was that the company is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year after its founding in 1977. In honor of that achievement, company owners flew their long-time build partners to the U.S. from Taiwan—Mr. Lin and his son Jeff, plus their families— who, together, have forged a family business by ensuring high- quality workmanship that endures. Congratulations to the Kadey-Krogen Yachts extended family and to all the owners who couldn’t join in the festivities.
