Miller Time is an actively cruised trawler that is truly ready-to go. The current owners decided to work aboard and go out cruising – as a fun way to ease into retirement. After a reasonable search they settled on the Kadey Krogen 58 as their preferred trawler model. Purchased in 2017, Miller Time immediately went into a Fort Lauderdale, Florida shipyard to have deck hardware removed and the exterior painted. That was the start of what has continued to be an outstanding series of improvements to make this vessel better while proudly being cruised. The owners have ventured along the US eastern seaboard cruising from Maine to the Florida Keys, as well as enjoying vacations in the Bahamas. Miller Time has provided an ideal platform to complete the transition from careers to retirement. It is now time for the owners to seek new adventures ashore with family and grandchildren.
Miller Time is hull number 5 of the largest Kadey Krogen model. Robustly constructed, she is smooth through the water with her fine bow entry slicing into the seas for a soft ride, and her wine glass transom leaving a minimal wake trailing behind.
On deck she is easy to get around with a large swim platform, substantial cockpit, good starboard side deck with high bulwarks continuing to the Portuguese bridge with entry through a gate to the foredeck or curving aft to port to the upper patio/boat deck which connects to the flybridge atop.
Inside, the saloon and galley create a welcoming entry level with excellent views of your surroundings through large windows. There are reclining chairs and a bench settee with an adjustable table for meals. The galley has been upgraded with several new appliances including a Blue Star propane stove top and oven. The forward section of the entry gives you a choice of heading up or down. Up to the sumptuous pilothouse with Stidd helm chair, well placed nav/com with a raised bench seat and table behind. The other option is to head down to the accommodations deck which begins with the open office (and access to the engine room) and includes a guest stateroom with head/shower to starboard and continues forward to the owner cabin with head/shower.
The interior has a uniform cherry wood finish with carpeting and window blinds. The woodwork is light and beautifully crafted. The parquet soles and white overhead panels give her a regal feel that compliments the interior décor.
Capable of long range continuous-duty travel, her raised pilothouse and twin John Deere engines enable owner operators to run through the night for several days to comfortably complete an ambitious passage. Her two-stateroom, two-head layout is a comfortable floating home that also enjoys safely resting at anchor in style. An incredible amount of time, energy and money have been extended to keep Miller Time ready-to-go whenever the motivation to get away beckons.
You may have guessed correctly that the owners last name is Miller. To them, their boat name conjures up a familiar ditty for a popular beer from days gone by, “When it’s time to relax…it’s Miller Time”
ACCOMMODATIONS and LAYOUT:
Miller Time is set up for one couple to operate and maintain her with the ability to invite another couple (family or guests) to come along. The aft outside deck (cockpit and starboard side deck) are lined with teak and the widebody arrangement allows for a comfortable walkway connection from the cockpit, past the saloon and up the steps to the Portuguese bridge. The foredeck has built in seating facing the bow and a ground tackle station forward which collects the anchor chain under the Freeman hatch. The upper aft deck has tall stainless steel safety rails that run across the deck to fence off the dinghy and crane zone. The upper patio deck is a place for sunning when the weather allows and the flybridge has two helm chairs facing the helm and instruments and an aft facing dinette so several people can enjoy the ride or take in the view protected beneath the overhead Bimini.
Entering the living spaces through the cockpit you immediately appreciate the beautiful hue of the cherry wood which blends with carpeting over the wood sole and white overhead panels. There are large windows in the saloon and the galley has a great set up for cooking and preparing meals with a door that connects outside to the starboard deck.
Miller Time is configured in the “Open Office” arrangement which dedicates a stateroom sized space for an office with a desk area that includes counter space, lockers and drawers. The guest stateroom to starboard contains two single berths with storage spaces and a private head/shower attached forward. The owner stateroom is under the foredeck boasting a large island berth and private head/shower. There are two large machinery areas beneath the sole of the lower level and the engine room is easy to enter with a path between the two engines and two generators. This center channel in the engine room extends aft to the lazarette.
Entering the saloon through French doors that have glass viewing windows, you arrive into a social area with seating, dining and entertainment. There are two Ekornes chairs with ottomans to port with a custom glass octopus table. L-shaped settee to starboard. The saloon table can be adjusted to serve from two to eight guests. There is a flat screen television with a lift to port. The flooring is carpeted. Windows have screens, valances, and blinds.
Forward to starboard is an impressive sea-going galley. The expansive Corian counter surfaces are wide and trimmed with fiddles. There is a Dutch-door that opens to the starboard side deck (with bug screen). Plenty of lockers and drawers for the traditional galley necessities. Primary appliances include garbage disposal, house-sized refrigerator, upgraded BlueStar LPG four burner stove, microwave convection oven, trash compactor and dish washer.
A few steps down from the entry level and you arrive in a very wide space that is set up to be a work place on the go. This prominent area is what designates this layout as the Open Office. The area features a full-size work space with a desk area and desk chair. Surface area for spreading out is immense and you can tuck things away into the lockers and drawers. There are also shelves for books and an opening portlight.
Connecting the living area is a straight hallway that runs from the engine room door up to the owner stateroom. The hallway is wide and spacious, easy to transit. The sole is parquet and there are two substantial machinery spaces below deck. The office machinery space includes air conditioning, fresh water, water tank, batteries, inverters, stabilizers and more. The owner machinery space has access to the forward bow thruster chamber and includes the water maker, deck wash and holding tank, black water equipment. The separate clothes washer and clothes dryer laundry appliances are built in on the port side.
The engine room is a stretched, broad area with a workbench on entry and the ability to see, inspect and service the machinery and equipment. This access is important so that you can keep in touch with the pulse of your ship. The twin John Deere 6068TFM50, 154 HP engines sit beautifully on both sides of center with the shrouded exhaust traveling aft before exiting through the wet exhaust. Four aluminum fuel tanks. Two Northern Lights generators. The fuel manifolds are forward for easy access and manipulation. This is an engine room that is easy to manage.
The lazarette includes the space beneath the cockpit. There is a large hatch that hinges open to access a short step ladder for entry. You can also reach the lazarette via the rugged, dogged door that connects to the engine room. There are two Glendinning reels for shore power to starboard. The twin rudders with hydraulic steering rams run along the aft section. There are provisions for storing spare parts and supplemental machinery oil.
The starboard stateroom has two single berths separated by an open center passage. Drawers under the beds and a large hanging locker forward. Two opening port lights. There is plenty of storage and easy access to the en-suite head and shower.
At the forward end of the hallway, you reach the owner suite (head/shower and large bed). This forward center beam location is away from the guest spaces and focuses on a large island berth. The owner bed features a custom inner spring mattress. Outboard to each side of the bed is a built-in changing seat and aft to port is a head with shower. There is a bank of drawers bureau with mirror above. There is an incredible amount of storage for clothes with drawers and hanging lockers.
This is a convenient and private head with stand-up shower and sink. It is finished with varnished cherry (an upgrade from the standard gelcoat) and includes mirrored medicine cabinet and lockers.
The pilothouse on the Kadey Krogen 58 is one of this vessels’ most attractive features. Near 360-degree visibility gives you a view perspective unequalled on other trawlers. This space is planned for underway operations and the gorgeous cherry joinery blends in with the luxurious feel of the living areas below. The display mounting surface areas are varnished cherry which are wonderfully outfitted with marine electronics featuring large screen displays and redundant marine navigation. Aft of the helm is an L-settee. Both pilothouse doors are heavy weather Dutch doors.
UPPER SUN DECK AND BOAT DECK
Walking along the port side of the pilothouse you head aft up some steps to the sun deck level. The stainless railing offer protection has canvas weather cloths for privacy. All the way aft is a fenced off area for the ships tender and powered dinghy davit crane. The dinghy rests on cradles and has tie downs. The gate in the fence secures this aft section and there is a notch in the railing for resting the mast when you need to lower it for bridges or tight clearances. The sun deck portion has an open air deck with two teak loungers. From this deck level you can go up a couple of steps to the flybridge.
The flybridge is a few easy steps up from the boat deck and provides a commanding view. The helm is ergonomically designed so that all the monitors, gauges, switches, controls and sightlines are clear. Enjoy operating from one of two helm chairs (co-captains). A folding Bimini top provides shade and weather cover. There is an L shaped cushioned settee to port with a fiberglass table.
PORTUGUESE BRIDGE DECK
Forward of the wheelhouse is a protected “walking well” where you can safely admire the sweeping ocean views and have protection from over-splash of unruly seas. There is a remote docking station outboard to starboard and storage lockers just forward of the pilothouse windows.
You can reach the foredeck from the center access provided in the Portuguese bridge. (2) Hydraulic Maxwell 3500 windlasses and (1) Hydraulic 3500 capstan are on the bow. There are also two large dock boxes for storage that have cushions for seating. There is a shore power connection to starboard. The cap rail has been painted over with gray Awlgrip for ease of maintenance.
SWIM STEP and COCKPIT
A fiberglass swim step with stainless U-rails allows for a spacious deck to arrive by dinghy or jump in for a swim. You can enter the cockpit from the transom boarding door, port side boarding door or starboard amidship boarding door. This area is fitted with teak decking. The cockpit area is covered overhead. To starboard is a built-in console with sink, barbeque, and drawers. The lazarette beneath houses steering control and has plenty of room to stow gear.

ADDITIONAL BROKER COMMENTS:
Miller Time is a US Coast Guard Documented vessel. The Krogen 58 is the flag ship and largest model in the production line for the builder, who has been supplying cruising yachts for over forty years. Approximately two dozen Kadey Krogen 58’s have been crafted and if the owners aren’t living aboard, they are enjoying several months of cruising each year. If you want to cross oceans economically or gunkhole along the coastlines closer to shore, this model will favorably compare with other full displacement long range production series trawlers like Selene and Nordhavn. Kadey Krogen proclaims their models are “At home on any sea”. You will learn this is a justified claim when you are able to get aboard to the flow of the layout and appreciate the quality construction, precision craftsmanship and priority of access for serviceability. The motion underway is outstanding, yielding a smooth, quiet and stable ride that thrives offshore.
