2000 Kadey-Krogen 48 Whaleback

Midland, Ontario


ADAGIO I has been lovingly cared for and professionally maintained with absolutely no expense spared. Always stored in indoor heated storage during the winter to keep boat clean and pristine, she is buffed and waxed with paintwork and hull looking great. With many recent upgrades, ADAGIO I is an exceptional, turnkey boat ready for cruising the Great Loop and beyond, and is now in the water in Southern Georgian Bay, Ontario awaiting new owners.

Her popular 3 stateroom / 2 head single level living space is very spacious and make her ideal for family and friends wishing to experience the cruising lifestyle. The large pilothouse is accessible from both the aft deck and the companionway.


The rugged full displacement hull and ease of handling make for a truly capable blue-water cruiser in excellent condition, ADAGIO I is a must see! You will not be disappointed.
