With her graceful sweeping lines, pronounced bow and rugged profile, you can tell just from her looks that Wanderer’s Rest is an offshore capable yacht.
Very few trawlers are as ideally suited for extended cruising as the Kadey Krogen 48 North Sea design.
With “go anywhere” range, the 48 glides through the water and provides a true “at home on any sea” waterfront traveling platform just as her builder advertises.
Her second owners have enjoyed her for over eight years and now Wanderer’s Rest is offered for sale in cruise-ready mode.
She has a popular widebody saloon/deck arrangement which merges forward through the galley and below to a spacious two stateroom, two head arrangement layout.
On deck she is topped with a raised pilothouse and flybridge for underway operations and enjoys good outdoor living space forward, aft and aloft.
Quiet and comfortable underway and at rest, she is up to the challenge of exploring local and long-distance cruising adventures.
After six years of ownership, the time has come to pursue other activities.
In October 2022 she was hauled out at Washburn’s in Solomons Island, Maryland to complete a new bottom paint job and regular maintenance mechanical services.
ACCOMMODATIONS and LAYOUT:
COCKPIT AND SWIM PLATFORM
You can board Wanderer’s Rest from the aft cockpit door via the swim platform (great when arriving by dinghy) or from the port cockpit or starboard side deck door. Wanderer’s Rest’s swim platform and cockpit also create a convenient hub for in-water sports such as diving or snorkeling. A recessed shore power cable (on electric spool) alongside fresh water taps connections are easily accessed on the cockpit starboard forward bulkhead against the house. Cockpit cap rails are Awlwood clear-coated, and the entire lower walking surfaces is decked with teak. There is also a wing door on the starboard side to deflect the breeze when enjoying the cockpit. From the cockpit you can head aft to the swim platform for a dinghy adventure, forward to starboard via the side deck which transits past the pilothouse and up to the foredeck, or straight ahead into the saloon.
There is a large opening hatch in the cockpit deck for entering the lazarette below. The lazarette houses the steering system and provides plenty of storage. You will find a lot of room to bring aboard your own requirements – imagine dive gear, water toys, and spares.
Two double welded aluminum weathertight doors with windows inset allow entrance into the saloon. Wanderer’s Rest benefits from her widebody saloon (no walking side deck to port) so she boasts a much roomier and spacious interior than a double side deck edition. The saloon is carpeted wall to wall with Maslan 100% wool. The saloon aboard Wanderer’s Rest creates a very open, airy, and pleasant environment for her owners and guests. For visibility, light and ventilation, there are large opening windows port and starboard as well as an opening window in the aft bulkhead.

Forward of the settee is an end cabinet and entertainment center that houses a hidden LG flat screen television and Bose sound system.
To port are two leather Ekornes Stressless recliners and ottomans. Additionally, this area includes a beverage cabinet that houses a wine cooler, liquor storage as well as lockers and shelves. The engine room is accessed by a floor hatch forward in the sole.

The toilet is a fresh water Vacuflush. The standup shower has a bi-fold door and a built-in seat. The guest head also contains the stacked Bosch washer/dryer for onboard laundry requirements.

Forward and up from the saloon/galley area is the raised pilothouse, the operations and command center of Wanderer’s Rest. She is outfitted for long distance offshore travel and is equipped with the priorities for safe and efficient piloting. The arrangement of displays and controls has been planned for quick glances and easy reach from the helm. Guests can enjoy the view behind the helm and facing forward from the large and comfortable L-shaped settee. This settee also converts to a double berth when needed. There are heavy, welded aluminum Dutch weathertight doors port and starboard providing easy access to the side decks. There are large opening windows port and starboard and two stainless steel opening ports in the aft bulkhead. The large reverse raked windows allow an incredible view forward.
The ground tackle includes a Maxwell horizontal windlass with a 40 lb. Rocna and 250’ of 7/16” chain The bow pulpit secures two separate anchors on individual rollers. The secondary anchor is a 88 lb. Delta with 50’ of 7/16” chain and 150’ of 7/8” rode. There is also a spare Fortress anchor aboard. Shore power connections and both fresh and seawater washdown provide extra convenience in this area. The deck is uncluttered with two opening hatches above the Owner stateroom. Forward of the pilothouse windows is a built-in seat locker area with cushions (faded) that provide a great place to relax at anchor or underway in the right conditions.
The AB dinghy and Yamaha outboard are stowed on the boat deck landing which is above the cockpit/saloon and behind the pilothouse. You can access this area from the port side of the pilothouse up a short ladder with teak treads. With the dinghy launched, you have a tremendous deck area available to enjoy. Two folding bikes are included with Wanderer’s Rest.
The flybridge features a centerline helm captain’s chair, and passenger lounge seating running along both sides. For underway operations you have easy reach access to the chart plotter, auto pilot, bow thruster controls, and dual VHF radios. This is a similar arrangement comparable to the primary helm below, providing just as much vessel control as the pilot house. The flybridge is a wonderful place to cruise underway or relax at rest during those warm, sunny days on the water.
