Kadey-Kro­gen’s 40th An­niver­sary

Passage Maker - - Contents -

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.
