Peter Frederiksen Sea Trials the Kadey-Krogen Summit 54

Stepping aboard the Summit 54 at the Waterway Marina in Stuart, Florida, I immediately understood her mission. She’s about being able to relax at a faster pace—say, 25 knots—with a stylish, shippy exterior and an elevated interior décor.

“The Summit 54 is the answer to Kadey-Krogen owners’ requests for an all-weather motoryacht with the admired features and safety elements of the 42-year-old brand, but this time around with more speed,” says Tom Button, president of Kadey-Krogen Yachts.
